The great Buddy Holly died 54 years ago today in a plane crash that also claimed the lives of Ritchie Valens, the Big Bopper, and the pilot.

The plane had been chartered following a gig in Clear Lake, Iowa, and was heading to the next tour stop in Fargo, North Dakota when it crashed minutes after take-off.

The three classic songs below remind us why Buddy Holly was such a great loss to the music industry and why he is still loved by fans all these years later.
