Recording information by Nelson-DennyGOLD

Judges Challenge Final Round.
On Feb 3, 1959, J.P. Richardson (The Big Big Bopper) was immortalized when he died in a plane crash along with Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens on their way to their midwestern 24 cities concert tour. It would come to be called 'The Day That The Music Died; a very sad time for American teens. Everybody remembers Buddy but J.P. and Ritchie have been kind of glossed over. I picked a song by J.P. because he quietly came up through the ranks as a disc jockey and song writer before he became a rock 'n roller. He was quite accomplished. He successfully studied pre law and you might want to check out his profile for his musical accomplishments. This is not the biggest or most popular of the time but it was up there for a while. Thanks for dropping by.

This is an awesome song and you aced it!!! Loved my listen! Thanks for sharing with us all!

By the way The Big Bopper, Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens all played in Kenosha, Wi. at The Eagles Club, which is about a mile away from my town, before they played in Clear Lake, Iowa and where their plane crashed. You are right...it was the day the music died for many teens of the era.

Lots of **********'s heading your way for a fabulous performance!!

Nelson,
You've done a FANTASTIC job singing here, honoring the Big Bopper!!............Both Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper have been over-looked or over-shadowed by Buddy Holly for years after their deaths........Buddy Holly wasn't the only one who died that day!! Thanks so righting a wrong, at least somewhat!!
