Over the next couple months, I will post some photos of things I saw on the road trip.
This is the first installment. How many people remember Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and J.P. "Big Bopper" Richardson? I remember when their plane hit the field outside Clear Lake, Iowa. I was a fan of all three musicians. The day we arrived at the Surf Ballroom the place was buzzing with preparations for a dinner for Iowa Hawkeyes. The television crews were setting up equipment and the tables were set for dinner. We were given permission to roam and take photos. This was another check off my bucket list to see the Surf Ballroom in person.
