Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Buddy Holly. Don McLean famously referred to the date as The Day the Music Died in his song “American Pie”. My favorite line about that tragic day comes from John Milner in “American Graffiti” (aka George Lucas’ only good movie).

I don’t like that surfin’ sh*t. Rock and roll’s been going down hill ever since Buddy Holly died.

So true…so true.
