The Day Music Died

Postby RPGking » Sat Apr 02, 2011 12:38 am

On February 3rd, 1959, a Beechcraft Bonanza airplane crashed into Albert Juhl's corn field in the midst of a snow storm. On board was Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, and pilot Roger Peterson. All of them died instantly, and had their bodies ejected from the plane at impact, causing excessive damage to their person (I've read the coroners reports, not pretty). All 3 of the rockstars were on a Winter Dance Tour around America, they had a tour bus. The heater broke and they all got sick, partly due to the fact it was in the middle of the winter. Buddy Holly, to save a long, excruciatingly cold bus ride several hundred miles to their next location, he chartered a plane. The pilot was Roger Peterson, an inexperienced 21 year old. he didn't know how to read instruments correctly, and in a storm, this was crucial. He had no prior warning of the massive snowstorm on the way, and wasn't certified to fly in those conditions even if he had knew because of his inability to read instruments. Before boarding, Buddy Holly and Waylon Jennings, a friend of Buddy, engaged in conversation. Jennings wasn't coming on the plane, Buddy said jokingly,"I hope your old bus freezes up again." In a retort, and a statement that still haunts Jennings to this day, Jennings said,"I hope your old plane crashes."

At about 1:00 AM, February 3rd, 1959, their plane went down killing everyone on impact.

All of these artists were subject to the rock and roll era of the 1950's and 60's, innovating the music industry with new sounds and music. Songs like, La Bamba, Come On Let's Go are songs you've ALL heard, just didn't know who they were by. They are portrayed in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Here's a link, with a more detailed synopsis, and viewable autopsy and police reports from the scene of the crash.

http://www.findadeath.com/Deceased/h/Buddy%20Holly/buddy_holly.htm

To this day, plane parts, personal items from the deceased, and body parts are still being found. A memorial was build to honor them at the crash site, and you can tour it, or view the crash site through Buddy Holly's glasses.

I don't know any of those people who died. And I don't care for music in the 60s.

Correction 50's, and that's what it was called when 3 major rock and roll stars were killed. It's a nickname. And if you didn't, why did you even post.

Beatles was 60's too. Led Zeppelin and disco the 70's, Nirvana and grunge the 90's. As for the 80's, glam rock and metalheads. 50's was Elvis, right? And the 2000-2010 decade was piracy.

Jimi Hendrix was an exception lol.

Okay okay, yeah a lot of good artists were in the 60s, but the only music I like is Jimis. Not really anybody you named.

You took it the wrong way. I meant I didn't care for the music, not the people.

Not trying to be mean here, stop trying to put me out to be.

He said they were good, he just didn't like them personally, which is exactly what you said in the following sentence. Unless I'm misunderstanding. :P

Actually. the day real music died was when Frank Sinatra died. But yes, this was a tragic event. I myself am a big fan of Buddy Holly (Oddly enough do to my metal music taste.) and music from that particular century (I will always be a child trapped in a 21st century mind that belongs in the 1900's.) Shame on ya'll for dissing his talent, and rest in peace oh great singers.

    Nel mezzo del camin di nostra vita
    mi ritrovai per una selva oscura
    che la diritta via era smarrita.
    Ahi quanto a dir qual era è cosa dura
    esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte,
    che nel pensier rinuova la paura!
    Tant 'e amara che poco è più morte;
    ma per trattar del ben ch'i' vi trovai,
    dirò del altre cose ch'i' v'ho scorte.

Well, I listen to a lot of techno/house/electronica/ambient music, so not necessarily, but tbh almost anyone can create it given the right tools on a computer.

Yep, and there's no real knowledge in music making or composing needed since there are some programs that just use simple loops which you only need to put onto a timeline and hope it sounds nice and you have got your song made in 5 minutes. In the early 60s and 70s when the synthesizer was not able to play sequences automatically, that was the time you could say "We worked hard to learn this song and play it, but now we finally made it and recorded it." That was the time when the musicians have played instruments instead of starting a tape and hope nobody will notice it's only playback.

Yeah, but many artists who do house and whatnot do have some musical experience, Deadmau5, he's a fine example, as is Merc. It seems really that most mainstream house artists do have some music background, but the average Joe who thinks he can do that, can really pick up any computer program, and make something in 5 minutes. The majority of mainstream artists in that genre do really word hard at their compositions, not maybe as much as guys from the 60's, 70's that didn't have that stuff (take for example the Bee Gees, they made some really cool sounds, but didn't have a synth).

I'll say it again, music isn't dead. You can still listen to what's these dead artists left behind.

If we're talking about modern mainstream artists, then they don't work hard at all on compositions. A lot of modern mainstream artists don't even write their own songs, especially the artists who were welcomed into the mainstream rather than those working for it. Those welcomed into mainstream gets everything handed to them, and those are usually the ones who gets those stupid breakthroughs for good or bad reasons.

K-Pone wrote:Yep, and there's no real knowledge in music making or composing needed.

Yes, it annoys me a lot when artists ditch the use of real instruments. You can hear a clear difference between Dave Matthews band and modern pop, let's say, Rebecca Black. Even her voice isn't real.

I somewhat agree with you Scav, but I somewhat disagree.

But yeah, there's been a lot of tragic days in music history, this was one.
And according to each user whos posted here, they have a different date/time/year.

lol

I love most music from the 30s to 20050's too, also some 20's music. There's a bit of a gap from sometime in the 60s to sometime in the 70s, not really a fan of classic rock or early Beatles type music. And I agree that music took its sharpest decline around 2000. Boy bands and Britney and Christina killed off pop and turned it into the garbage it is today, but I'm seeing things getting better. There's some pretty good bands that I like who I guess you could call popular, like Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon and Adele, who is probably the most famous musician in the world at the moment, yet she is still awesome and deserves all the credit she is getting for a change. That hasn't happened in a long time, so I remain optimistic :)

Music died the day auto-tune was introduced. People who sing like druken lamas on heroine can now sound amazing. That's what the world has come to. Long live the 80's.

I do listen to Nightwish, although they started in the 90's, they first got international success during the 2000's.
