Not Many People Know That: Music Trivia

After the break up of The Crickets, Buddy Holly hired a bunch of new musicians, amongst them Waylon Jennings. Waylon was supposed to be on the flight in which Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper died, on February 3 1959, but he gave up his seat to the Big Bopper, choosing to take the bus instead. “I hope your ol’ bus freezes up,” Holly joked. “Well,” Jennings responded, “I hope your ol’ plane crashes.”
In his 1996 autobiography, Jennings admitted he felt guilty about the crash for years afterwards. Who wouldn’t?
