    If I recall, the plane crashed near a town called Clear Lake. Located in the upper north central part of IOWA. Truly a sad day for those who remember. Rock and Roll legends!

    I think I read about it in the Sunday paper, didn't understand it then, but later learned who they were and their music, big loss.

    Some day I would like to talk to someone who has been there and ask them to try and explain if there is any kind of feeling there out of the ordinary.
    I know I always get chocked up when I watch that movie ( La Bamba)
    Almost unbelievable some of the stories that go along with the tragedy.
    Richie, only 17.
    Buddy, Wife carring his child.
    JP a family man as well.
    All because Buddy made a wrong decission. I never Fly in the Winter.
    OH, and YES I LOVE their Music also.
