Yesterday we looked at a site that saluted Buddy Holly, one of the main stars in the golden age of rock and roll music. Today we look at another star from the era, one whose career lasted a short seven months.
The site is called Ritchie Valens.net, and is a tribute site for that singer. He had hits with the songs “Donna”, “Come On, Let’s Go”, and “La Bamba”. He was a 17 year old high school student when his career started. Here you can follow a time line of his life, find out about the records he made, and learn about his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this past year. Unfortunately his career was tragically cut short in the same plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, on February 3rd, 1959, the day the music died.
Enjoy your visit here today, and come on let’s go enjoy some good ol’ rock and roll. Come back soon.
