Tribute to Buddy Holly who died Feb. 3 1959 a.k.a. 'The Day the Music Died'.
Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson,  was killed in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, USA, when flying from one city to the next on their "The Winter Dance Party" - tour.

In 1971 Don McLean wrote 'American Pie' as a tribute to Buddy and rock n roll music. 

Holly's music was sophisticated for its day, including the use of instruments considered novel for rock and roll, such as the celesta (heard on "Everyday"). Holly was an influential lead and rhythm guitarist, notably on songs such as "Peggy Sue" and "Not Fade Away". While Holly could pump out boy-loves-girl songs with the best of his contemporaries, other songs featured more sophisticated lyrics and more complex harmonies and melodies than had previously appeared in the genre.

Many of his songs feature a unique vocal "hiccup" technique, a glottal stop, to emphasize certain words in any given song, especially the rockers. Other singers (such as Elvis) have used a similar technique, though less obviously and consistently. Examples of this can be found at the start of the raucous "Rave On!": "Weh-eh-ell, the little things you say and do, make me want to be with you-ou..."; in "That'll Be the Day": "Well, you give me all your lovin' and your -turtle dovin'..."; and in "Peggy Sue": "I love you Peggy Sue - with a love so rare and tr-ue ...".
