I have been writing about the Buddy Holly plane crash for several years as a setup for our annual Winter Dance Party memorial. Each year I learn more, have been to the crash site, and have a friend in Clear Lake who shared stories with me from the owner of the plane. If interested you can Google “ennyman” and “Buddy Holly” or Winter Dance Party to find some of it… It was a bad concert tour all the way around, freezing temps, a bus breakdown in the middle of nowhere after the Duluth concert that Dylan was at… 20 below that night and a colder wind chill… a bit much for those Southern boys who were totally unequipped for a fight to survive the elements.

Much more can be said but yes, that gun throws a lot of monkey wrenches into the narrative.

Good read.
