    Buddy Holly was born September 7, 1936  and died suddenly February 3rd, 1959. Unbelievably his success was only over 18 months before he died, but his music has lasted forever. Like Elvis I went to dances  and bopped along to his songs and heard is music on radio. I saw the stage show Buddy Holly is Sydney and was just so hoping he was really there doing it. his music was just magical. He met and married Maria Elena Santiago  in 1958.
    Aborad the plane that crashed that fateful day was Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson, "The Big Bopper"   light snow after a concert. They would have all died on impact. Maria Elena was now a widow and pregnant but she miscarried shortly after Buddy died.
