At this point, after the serious lack of logic, and the ever changing details in Dion's version, it's just plain sad that his apparent attempt to rewrite history has more lives than a cat.

There have been many far more eloquent repudiations of Dion's version than I am able to express here, but simply put:

Seek out Waylon's interview on youtube at the Surf Ballroom.
<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPgC4Aiu5Gw">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPgC4Aiu5Gw</a>

To believe Dion, you have to call both Waylon and Tommy liars,
and crucially for me, you have to accept Dion's assertion that Buddy would have chartered a plane specifically to exclude his own band mates and relegate them to the bus.

Does anyone who has studied Buddy Holly, both the man and his music, think that he would have treated Tommy and Waylon in that way? After all, Buddy was the headliner for the tour. It was his responsibility above all to provide a top notch show every night. Allowing Waylon and Tommy the chance to get some extra rest by getting to the next show early was in his best interest, and frankly, the only logical version of the events. They had already lost their drummer to frostbite!

I honestly do encourage you to do your own careful research, don't just rely on mine, but I would be very surprised if after you do you choose to accept Dion's version.
