Too much to list. I'm sure his fans don't need to. An anniversary indeed....The last link is especially cool.

First of all, Dylan was not at the final show. He hailed from Minnesota and saw them earlier. Holly was worn out from bus touring and the heater had broken down, one of the young musicians had frostbite and Buddy just wanted to get some laundry done. There's so much to the history of this event. It fascinates me also and sadly this was bad planning putting these guys out there in the most ungodly conditions imaginable. This never should have happened AND that plane never should have left the ground. Peterson was 21 and not totally adept at reading instruments-and into a storm front no less.

I loved all those guys in the '60s and '70s who sat around telling you the real meaning of the words in songs. Such experts!

"American Pie" was at the top of the list for bogus explanations. It was just the name of the plane!
