Anway, it's February 3, fifty-one years to the day that Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper (after Holly's bassist, Waylon Jennings, gave up his seat for him) died in a plane crash. The Day The Music Died.
I actually wasn't really going to comment on the videos at all, but a couple of these are wild. This one is fantastic with "rock and roll specialist" and the creepy prom-dressed kids standing still in the background.
There's almost no actual footage of Richie Valens, but I thought this would be better than just showing Los Lobos.
The audience is very subdued, probably stoned out of their minds. I had no idea that Don McLean had such a good voice.
