On February 3, 1959 a plane-crash claimed the lives of three American rock and roll pioneers. The three rock and roll pioneers were Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P, The Big Bopper,Richardson. The pilot Roger Peterson was also in the list. Later on Don McLean addressed this day ‘The Day the Music Died’.
The three rock and roll pioneers were in a tour named ‘The Winter Dance Party’. Buddy Holly planned the tour. He along with his co-performers traveled to Clear Lake,Iowa, by a bus under such a condition which was below-freezing. They were in a single-engined Beech craft Bonanza plane on their way to Fargo,North Dakota. Jerry Dwyer, the pilot of that plane, was not aware of the weather notice. The result is that the plane crashes during a snowstorm. Yet rock and roll world had met with its greatest tragedy ever.
