Today is the 50-year anniversary of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Richie Valens. Buddy Holly was the first guy I ever called "my favorite musician." And while that slot would later be occupied by other greats like Weird Al, Sandi Patti, and Neil Sedaka (I was a cool kid), my love for Buddy Holly's music raves on. Check out the clip below. The way he plays that guitar is still kind of amazing.
