February 3, 1959 – The plane carrying Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper crashed. The day the music died.

Remembering them today with this Buddy Holly song, written by Roy Orbison, “You’ve Got Love”.

Buddy Holly was heavily influenced by Roy Orbison and did 2 Roy Orbison songs on his first album!

They were personal friends and sometimes rivals as teenagers growing up a town away from each other in Texas.
