Buddy Holly died On February 3, 1959 in a small-plane crash together with Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. That day is still known as "The day the music died". Sometimes I wonder what other beautiful songs he would have made if he hadn't died at age 22. Weezer named one of their songs to him.
"True Love Ways" Buddy Holly ... "True Love Ways" is a song co-written by Buddy Holly and Norman Petty and recorded with the Ray Ellis orchestra in October 1958, four months before the singer's death.... Such a beautiful song and one I have always loved!
