On Today's Episode Of What's In Veo's Brain...

I just love when I get thrown into the black hole of music history. Yee 😐

Since I'm a sucker of going down massive black rabbit holes at night, because Insomnia, I ended up reading about the horrible plane crash that claimed the lives of Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens. It's always heartbreaking to me, because all three musicians were such enormous talents. Ritchie Valens was just 17 years old. 17! Like, they had so much to give to the world, they really did. I love the music of the 50s, (no derrr you all knew that) and so I had to give Buddy a listen this morning. Ritchie is usually the forgotten one, and it's a shame, because he could have had an amazing career ahead of him. So how about you? What do you think they would be up to had they lived? Drop 'em in the comments. Isn't music history awesome?

    • It’s almost frightening. Same thing happened last year when my dad passed, the night before I was listening to Ozzy’s song So Tired and my dad died the next day.

  • My mom's side of my family is from clear lake iowa where the crash was. I've been to the surf ballroom (where they played their last show) several times. Such a shame they were killed.
