FEBRUARY 3rd - BAD DAY IN ROCK & ROLL HISTORY

February 3rd is probably the worst day for rock and roll history.Why?


  • Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valence and the Big Bopper died in a plane crash on Feb. 3, 1959.

  • British record producer Joe Meek commits suicide (after killing his landlady) on Feb. 3, 1967. Meek was obsessed with Buddy Holly to the point that he tried to contact Holly with the help of a medium. Meek also believed in his later days that American record producer Phil Spector (pictured below) was spying on him.

  • And speaking of Spector, on Feb. 3rd, 2003, actress Lana Clarkson dies from a gunshot at Phil Spector's mansion. A jury found Spector guilty of murdering Lana Clarkson on April 13, 2009. Here is a look at what I said about the case on the old blog.
