The day the music died.

CNN has an article about the 3rd of February, the day Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and J.P. Richardson died in a plane accident in 1959 and the way it was remembered, since it's the 50th anniversary.
I already mentioned this day in a post where I wrote about La Bamba, the song that Valens famously adopted from folclore.
As someone who loves legends a great personalities, artists, this event is somewhat relevant for me, even if the term "the day the music died" is, in my humble opinion, incorrect, since many legends were born after this date, it's enough to mention The Beatles. Anyway, of course the tragic importance of this day is not something we could question and it's definitely part of musical and pop cultural history and, as the article says, "the end of the first bloom of rock anarchy and innovation".
