Feb 3, 1959: The Day The Music Died
I make no claims to the accuracy of the information in this video, but it is interesting to read about some of what Don McLean might have been saying. The song American Pie is thought to be a coded history of American rock music, and the way it changed after Buddy Holly died. It's one of my all time favorites.
If you're interested, you can read the annotated commentary on the song, culled from various newsgroup discussions. Again, I can't guarantee that this is accurate, but it's one of the best interpretations/rundowns of the song that I've seen.
Hat tip to Thoughtful Conservative for the link to the Fox News article.
