The prolific life and tragic, unexpected death of late, legendary rocker Buddy Holly is explored in this installment of “The Day the Rock Star Died.” Like many other music superstars before and after him, Buddy Holly’s life ended music too soon. Holly died in 1959 in a plane crash with Ritchie Valens and “The Big Bopper.”

The date of the crash has long been dubbed “The day the music died,” and the horrific loss inspired Don McLean’s iconic hit “American Pie.” Holly’s music legacy remains decades after his death. His indelible hits include “Peggy Sue,” “That’ll Be The Day” and “Oh Boy.”
