being music lovers my guess is most of you know that today it has been 50 years since buddy holly and three others were killed in a plane crash after playing at the winter dance party in Clear Lake, Ia. For the last 4 night there have been concerts at the surf ballroom, the same place Buddy Holly played his last show, and only 4 blocks from my house. these have been the regular same as every year concerts, but tonight was going to have Gram Nash as the main attraction. Yesterday my neighbor who owns a pizza place said black sabbath minus ozzy came to eat and left her a guitar pick for a tip. other people have said that Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton are both in town. well this is just a pre-rant as to why I could be missing the best concert ever held at the surf ballroom.
edit: for those who have never herd of this...listen to American pie
A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, theyd be happy for a while.
But february made me shiver
With every paper Id deliver.
Bad news on the doorstep;
I couldnt take one more step.
I cant remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride,
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died.
