The Military Service Disruption

February 3, 1959

Military Service in Germany

Feb 3 – March 1960: Goethestr.14 in Bad Nauheim, Germany

At about 1:00 a.m. CST, about four minutes after taking off from the Mason City, Iowa airport, the chartered airplane containing Buddy Holly (Peggy Sue, That’ll Be The Day), Ritchie Valens (Donna, La Bamba), and the “Big Bopper” J.P. Richardson (Chantilly Lace), crashed into an Iowa field, instantly killing all three and the pilot Roger Peterson. Headed for the next “Winter Dance Party” tour stop in Fargo, North Dakota, the plane had been chartered by Holly so that the band members could travel in heated comfort (their tour bus had a broken heater) and arrive early for the next show. The pilot, not informed of worsening weather conditions, decided to fly “on instruments,” meaning without visual confirmation of the horizon, which led to the crash. Richardson was 28, Holly was 22, and Valens was 17. Don McLean later immortalized the tragedy in his classic song “American Pie,” calling this “the day the music died.”

Ritchie Valens, J.P. ‘The Big Bopper’ Richardson and Buddy Holly

Holly and “J. P.” Richardson Jr “Bopper” widowed pregnant wives. Holly’s wife miscarried upon the news.

The others had their own homes by now – but also, camera technology allowed a greater access for professional photographers.
