Where were you the day the music died?-Buddy Holly

Gonners over 60 years of age.

I remember what I was doing when I heard JFK was shot.

Not to put my musical question on the same level, but can you remember what you were doing when Buddy Holly was reported as having died?

I was looking at a Rek O Kut 12 inch recording lathe in the front window of Joe Franecki's appliance store at 13'th street in Milwaukee. I needed it so I could cut records of the weddings I recorded for $25 on a Saturday morning. {I was in High school and needed to feed my audio hobby.} I thought it was just another accident.

Tonight I'm listening to Don McLean-American Pie.-- Memories last.

Thanks for your posting, Ken

Ken, Ken, Ken............Buddy Holly is not dead.

He was spotted last week, in Las Vegas, hanging with Elvis Presley and a bevy of young female fans.

I'm hoping they are still there when CES gets into swing, I want to compare Buddy and Elvis's voices to the remastered Steve Hoffman LP.
I still listen to Buddy's songs and sign along knowing all the words. That is some toe-tapping, joy of life music!
I am 57 and had older brothers who exposed me to his art.
where was I?

Albertporter, better than be spotted last weekend while perpetrating an armed robbery of sports memorabilia..."what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas"...for a 10-20 prison stretch!
Evidently..what happens in Vegas DOESN'T stay in Vegas!
You guys are right, what happens in Vegas DOSEN'T say in Vegas.

CES will be in Las Vegas in January, I'll wager much of what happens there will be posted all over the internet :^).
For those of you that are younger - where/what were you when Buddy Holly died? Audiotomb's answer is incorrect.
I am 59 now so I was young but have an older brother who played Buddy Holly all the time - especially Peggy Sue and Rave On and That'll Be The Day and True Love Ways. I loved Buddy Holly then and still do. Memories rush back with every hearing. It seemed like a less complicated time. Like Gammajo, one of the things I am appreciative of is the early music exposure that my 6 year older brother made possible.
Back then anyone with an AM transistor radio could keep up with the top 40 songs and beyond, so the whole pop music scene was universally accessible and therefore so memorable. Different groups seemed to complement one another like one continuous "super-group". The DJ's were very good at putting their shows together. I can even get into Bobby Vinton's lonesome songs, not to mention surf music (I never went surfing but so what?). Were there any bad songs? Can't recall...
