60 years ago today, a letter was written by Buddy Holly to his former manager, Mr. Norman Petty, requesting money owed to him from their prior business relationship. Buddy had split with The Crickets and Norman Petty during the previous November to be a solo artist. I believe this letter to be the final direct communication between Buddy and Norman.

Less than 30 days later on February 3,1959, Buddy Holly would perish in a plane crash outside of Clear Lake, Iowa. The crash also took the lives of Ritchie Valens, J.P.”Big Bopper” Richardson, and pilot Roger Peterson.

May they Rest In Peace, forever.
