Military Service for Elvis.

22 year old Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, 28, and Ritchie Valens, aged 17, died in a crash shortly after take-off from Clear Lake, Iowa, along with pilot Roger Peterson of the single-engined Beechcraft Bonanza plane. Holly hired the plane after heating problems developed on his tour bus. All three were travelling to Fargo, North Dakota, for the next show on their Winter Dance Party Tour which Holly had set – covering 24 cities in three weeks, to make money after the break-up of his band, The Crickets, last year.

This new ranch-style house was meant to offer more privacy for Elvis and Priscilla. Marty Lacker, who was responsible for its interior decoration, would reside there along with Charlie Hodge. The others had their own homes by now – but also, camera technology allowed a greater access for professional photographers.

I’m sorry mate, do it yourself, spend some of your own money and get it done. It just makes me angry.”
