    More on this tragedy:

    On February 3, 1959, a small-plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, United States, killed three American rock and roll musicians: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson, as well as the pilot, Roger Peterson. The day was later called The Day the Music Died by Don McLean in his 1971 song "American Pie".
