Today marks the 50th anniversary of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper). While all left their mark on the early days of rock 'n roll, I sometimes wonder what would have been had they not been killed on that night.

Ritchie Valens....who knows what he could have become? He had 3 big hits at the age of 17. Buddy Holly....already a big star, but hw would have become a HUGE superstar of rock, and I could see him moving over a little towards country. J.P. "THe Big Bopper" Richardson only had one song, so who knows what he could have done?
As I write this, I am listening to La Bamba and American Pie.
