Buddy Holly, 22 (1936-1959): Unlike some other stars who died young, Buddy Holly was quite looking forward to staying alive for a long time. He had already scored a bunch of hit records, he had big plans for his musical future and his wife Maria Elena was expecting their first child.  Holly died in a plane crash along with Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.
