The Washington Post newspaper got one detail wrong:

"Though its notes are now familiar to anyone with a passing knowledge of American rock-and-roll music, the story remains a tragic one. Everyone on board was there by chance: Richardson took Waylon Jennings’s spot on the plane because Jennings had the flu; Valens won a coin toss with Tommy Allsup for his seat; and Holly wanted to get to Moorhead, Minn., early to do the band’s laundry in preparation for a show. Wintry conditions brought the plane down near Clear Lake, Iowa. The crash killed everyone on board, including pilot Roger Peterson."
