Yesterday was the anniversary of The Day The Music Died when music legends; Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and JP Richardson ( The Big Bopper) were sadly killed in a plane crash.
The songs they have sang have not died. We have compiled some covers of the songs performed and written by the three stars.(While this blog is usually for original new music we feel that we should still share covers for this occasion).
