Remembering Buddy, 1936-1959
February 3, 2009 is the 50th anniversary of the plane crash that took the lives of Buddy Holly, J.P. "The Big Bopper' Richardson, Ritchie Valens and pilot Roger Peterson - a day popularly known as "The Day the Music Died."
This mosaic of Buddy (along with Beyonce and a few others) is located on the west side of Sunset Station, just off E. Commerce Street. It used to be the old Southern Pacific depot.
