‘The Day the Music Died’, 51 years ago today
Last year, I had the privilege of writing a five-part blog series on this event. Among those I interviewed:
Connie Lemos, Ritchie Valens’ younger sister;
Bob Morales, Ritchie Valens’ older brother;
Jay Richardson, son of The Big Bopper;
Robert Maxwell Case, a professional classic country musician who’s a walking encyclopedia regarding country music history. I’ve tried to stump him several times and have failed miserably. 🙂 ;
Len Hobbs, a licensed pilot and flight instructor;
Jonathan Faber, a professional musician who’s been a licensing and intellectual property manager for Maria Elena Holly (Buddy’s widow).
