Today is the 50th anniversary of The Day the Music Died. Some musical tributes to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson.
And, of course, we can't forget that classic anthem to The Day the Music Died by Don McLean.
Fifty years gone, yet the inspiration of their gifts lives on among countless musicians and fans.
