Today we stopped in Clearlake, at the surf ballroom. The last place where Buddy Holly played a show before his plane crashed, killing him, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens.
Don Mclean wrote the song American Pie about Buddy Holly's death ... the day music died .
here are his lyrics written by him on the dressing room wall .
pebble from Kevin Costners shoe !!! Our guide Wayne, who pretty much spent his whole life in the ballroom, was very proud of this. He got his car vacuumed because he knew he was gonna be driving Kevin Costner around .. after he left kev .. he found this pebble in his car . .. he has now framed it! freak.
