Crash Site 3 Stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, Big Bopper
This video refers to a small plane crash which took place near Clear Lake, Iowa, United States on February 3, 1959, killing three popular American rock and roll musicians: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. The Big Bopper Richardson, as well as the pilot, Roger Peterson
About the music:
Three Stars is a song written by Tommy Dee and first recorded by EDDIE COCHRAN in 1959 as a tribute to Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper. Dee had a very little success in the 1960s with his RCA singles. The late Rock pioneer Eddie Cochran died in 1960 aged only 21 years
We have received following message!
We are making a film about the Big Bopper. His son is one of the producers. However, we are trying to get the funding in order to tell this overdue story.
You can see the website for the film at bigboppermovie.com
If you know anyone who would want to invest in the film, I would love it if you would ask them about it. It is a great investment; this film will go big in the United States, where we are filming, and I am sure that people in the UK and Australia will line up to see it as well since he was very popular in those countries.
Thank you so much for your time.

On February 3, 1959, rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. The Big Bopper Richardson were killed in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, together with pilot Roger Peterson. The event later became known as The Day the Music Died, after singer-songwriter Don McLean so referred to it in his 1971 song American Pie.
At the time, Holly and his band, consisting of Waylon Jennings, Tommy Allsup, and Carl Bunch, were playing on the Winter Dance Party tour across the Midwest. Rising artists Valens and Richardson had joined the tour as well.
The long journeys between venues on board the cold, uncomfortable tour buses adversely affected the performers, with cases of flu and even frostbite. After stopping at Clear Lake to perform, and frustrated by such conditions, Holly decided to charter a plane to reach their next venue in Moorhead, Minnesota. Richardson, who had flu, swapped places with Jennings, taking his seat on the plane, while Allsup lost his seat to Valens on a coin toss.
Soon after take-off, late at night and in poor, wintry weather conditions, the pilot lost control of the light aircraft, a Beechcraft Bonanza, which subsequently crashed into a cornfield, leaving no survivors.

The Day the Music Died
In just one day, three of the most influential rock and roll performers of the time were taken away too early. Buddy Holly (22), Ritchie Valens (17), J.P. Richardson, known professionally as The Big Bopper (28), and the pilot, Roger Peterson (21), were killed in a plane crash on February 3rd, 1959. After Don McClean's hit, American Pie, the event has been popularly named, The Day the Music Died. With no witnesses and no survivors, no one currently knows what exactly caused the crash. By compiling evidence, many theories have been inferred about what happened that fateful night. And for the deaf people, I HAVE CLOSED CAPTIONS!!!

I wish I could have filmed a little more, but the site had several people visiting. Because of heavy rain the area was very muddy or had standing water, so only a few could look at a time. We will be going back to the area and go to more locations from that night.
