RIP Ritchie Valens

Ritchie Valens has always been one of my musical favorites and his story is equal parts inspiration and tragedy held together by immense talent.If you ever get a chance Rhino Records has a really nice boxed set on Ritchie that is very impressive and informative. Ritchie, Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper died on this day 51 years ago. Ritchie was only 17. His career was short, but his influence is still felt in music today.
