    I'm amazed I got them all right not bad for one born in 61.

    You forgot that the day the music died was tribute to Richi Valens and the Big Bopper as well.

    I remember a trip down to the big easy when I was with my parents in the early 70's and we listened to Louis Armstrong and Count Basie playing across the street from where we were staying.
