To Stringofpearls: Flat out you're wrong. It was written about Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper. On February 3, 1959 and 1 AM their plane crashed and it was known as the day the music died. JFK has nothing t do with it, it doesn't even make sense...why would the MUSIC die when he was assassinated?
