"Interesting that the pilot of the plane is almost as well known as the 3 musicians who perished. Think of Otis Redding's, Jim Croce's, Lynrd Syynrd & Rick Nelson's plane crashes. Who were the pilots? No one knows"


I'm not sure anyone outside of a few hardcore Buddy Holly fans (hardcore fans who read the biographies and comment on message boards) knows who Roger Peterson is. I doubt the average person would recognize the pilot's name.

I think it's entirely possible that hardcore Otis Redding, Jim Croce, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Rick Nelson fans (fans who've read biographies and comment on those artists' message boards) know the names of their pilots.

Out of curiosity I just did a quick online search for info on the Otis Redding crash and I learned Richard Fraser, age 26, was the pilot. From what I see online there's been some arguments between Otis Redding fans about whether Richard Fraser was an experienced enough pilot for the flight.

Sounds familiar.

So it seems each fan base, whether it's Buddy's or Otis's or Rick's, knows the details of each tragedy, and revisits it online for speculation and debate.

Meanwhile the rest of the population - "normies" we can call them, and maybe even more casual fans - don't really know or care.
