Remembering the Day the Music Died

By February 3, 2013

Follow me on:

The day the music died brings back the memories of the plane crash that took away three of Rock n' Roll's greatest singers in the late fifties. But, thankfully, their music really didn't die. Although time has a way of dimming the memories, for the youngsters among us -- it was Buddy Holly's music that inspired so many that followed after him.

Several years ago Heritage Auctions had a Music and Memorabilia auction, check out the results to see what prices were for a few pieces of Holly memorabilia. The star of the show, as expected, was Holly's 14-karat white gold wristwatch that sold for $155,350. If you didn't have that much to spend, you could have come away with a pair of his argyle socks for less than $400.
