The day the music died

Surf Ballroom, Clear Lake, Iowa. February 3, 1959, Buddy Holly gave his last performance.

Read more about it here, . Be sure to read "annotated American Pie".

The coroners report is probably more detailed than most will want to read. We did not go to the actual site of the plane crash as it was getting late and required a walk of about 1/2 mile at the end of a gravel road (or so we were told).
The small garden tribute was nice without being gaudy. Clear Lake is a very nice town and the beach on the lake had few people as it was about 60 degrees and overcast.
