TIL i learned that the death of Buddy Holly made his pregnant wife miscarry after learning about his death on TV. As a result it became later forbidden for news outlets to announce a death before the family of the victim is notified
The Day the Music Died - Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Richie Valens die in plane crash on the way to a concert in Iowa. Commemorated in song "American Pie"
INCREDIBLY rare photograph of Buddy Holly with his wife Maria Elena (just after being married) and Phil Everly and his wife Jackie. Taken in New York at El Chico restaurant. This copy was made from the only known photo of these 4 together and it was one of Buddy Holly's favorite photographs. Note - the autograph in the upper right corner has been purposely altered. https://cassymuronaka.wordpress.com/page/18/
