    Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper: “The tour had been called “The Winter Dance Party.” Concert tours were profitable and Buddy Holly needed the money. He was recently married with a child on the way. Buddy had broken up with his group, The Crickets, and had left his record company. Joining him on the tour was former Cricket Tommy Allsup (a friend from his hometown of Lubbock, Texas) Waylon Jennings, and Dion and the Belmonts. The headliners were Buddy, Ritchie and the Big Bopper. It was a grueling tour of one-night stands in the middle of winter in the cold and snowy American Midwest. The bus kept breaking down and had no heat. One member of the group,  drummer Carl Brunch, suffered frostbite. Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper caught colds. Their last concert was at the Surf Ballroom, on Monday the 2nd of February 1959. Before departure, Buddy teased his friend from Texas, Waylon Jennings, because he wasn’t joining him in the plane. Buddy said, “Well, you’re not going on that plane with me tonight?” Jennings replied, “No.” Buddy’s reply was, “Well, I hope your old bus freezes up again.” Jennings snapped back, “Well, hell, I hope your old plane crashes.” Both events occurred that night.” #Music #History
