Today is the day the music died. On February 3rd, 1959, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson were killed in a plane crash.

And here's a spin on the classic song—Quirk author Erik Didriksen's sonnet version of "American Pie" by Don McLean. True skill. 

Find more of Erik's Shakepearean spins in his book Pop Sonnets and over on popsonnets.com.
