Tomorrw, February 3, 1959: The Day The Music Died

On February 3, 1959, three of the greatest rock and roll musicians of all times --  Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson -- were killed in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, together with pilot Roger Peterson. 

The event later became known as "The Day the Music Died", after singer-songwriter Don McLean so referred to it in his 1971 song "American Pie".
