Remembering the Big Bopper and Buddy Holly on Starday
Interestingly enough, and slighly less known, Buddy Holly also appeared on a Starday record that same year. Buddy was backing the great Starday honky-tonker Fred Crawford on his 'By the Mission Wall' (45-314) session.
Today was a day in which some great music died, but thankfully we were left with a lot of great recordings which live on. RIP The Big Bopper (aka Jape Richardson) and Buddy Holly (and Ritchie Valens too).
