This Day in History: February 3, 1959

The Day the Music Died” What a fitting phrase to such an American tragedy. Yet, in the aftermath, the music lives on, immortalized in our hearts, in our minds, on the radio, in film, on record, video and CD.

  1. My parents remember clearly when that happened. It was such a shock to everyone. Fortunately, their music lives on, as it should.

  2. I did a post with American Pie a couple of weeks ago. I do love the song. Buddy Holly’s death was before I was old enough to be paying attention to such things. I wonder how much music might have changed had he lived?

    I think Holly was as good as Elvis . . . less showy. Most would disagree I suppose.

    I have to admit – this was a little bit before my time – but I heard about the day of course and I listened to some of their music… I understand… so much talent passed away at once….

    Oh I remember that day so well though I didn’t understand a lot of the significance of it at my then young age of almost 13.
