The author has done an amazing job of capturing the essence of the persons involved, as well as the sequence of events leading up to The Day the Music Died.
It fully covers the Winter Dance Tour and brings to life again the Big Bopper,
Buddy Holly and Richie Valens. The author also explores the possibility that Holly
shot the pilot and maybe was even flying the plane!
Not only is "The Day The Music Died" a narrative on the tours, especially a tour in out-of-the-way spots in 1959, it provides a lot of details on the plane crash. The book would not only interest fans of Holly, Valens and J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper) but pilots and anyone interested in aviation.
It also follows up with other people connected to the three musicians and their later lives as well as the legacy left by Holly, Valens and Richardson.
The books is an intriguing look at a late 1950s rock tour, and more importantly, a terrible tragedy in the history of rock 'n' roll.
Very well written and intimate story of a fateful, last tour.
