Friday Flash 55.....
The heater on the tour bus had broken down, and it was freezing!!
Frustrated and miserable, Buddy decided to charter a plane for the gig in Minnesota. The Beechcraft only held four including the pilot, and Waylon had already given up his spot for J.P.
Ritchie looked at Tommy..."I'll flip ya for the seat".
Waylon Jennings was a guitar player for Buddy Holly as a member of The Crickets.
J.P. Richardson was known as The Big Bopper.
Tommy Allsup was also a member of The Crickets.
Ritchie Valens had NEVER flown before... He won the toss!
Don McLean called February 3, 1959..."The Day The Music Died".
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55,

So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!
