Subject: RE: Origins: The Day the Music Died
1959 must have been a real bad year for Rock'n'Roll.

Elvis was in the Army and Buddy Holly died.

The airwaves were filled by "spaghetti" R'n'R phonies like Frankie Abalone, Bobby Ridderbelli, Fabiacae and Constance Francospumoni. {Dion was OK}

Ricky Nelson kept the music going for several more years more. He was great, my opinion.
