the song American Pie was not only a tribut to Buddy Holy but to two other singers (Richie Valens and The Big Bopper ) "The Day The Music Died". also the name of the song is the same as the name of the plane that they were in that crashed and killed them.

P.*. you dont have to be old to know all this you just have to know a little bit about ancient history

Being "an old guy" I figured that I'd do well. I even got the "bonus answer" of the others who also died in that crash. What do I win?

BTW from http://www.fiftiesweb.com/crash.htm

Dwyer Flying Service got the charter. $36 per person for a single engine Beechcraft Bonanza.

No, the plane wasn't named American Pie. It only had serial numbers, N3794N.

I guess this makes me an old guy too. That means I get to be all crotchetty and stuff and I get to say "back in my day..." and "kids these days just don't know what work is..." and "they don't make things like they used to..." Right?
:P
