February 3rd is National Day the Music Died Day. The day was created to honor John Lennon, who died on that date in 1980. It also honors other musicians who died on that same date, including Buddy Holly and Jimi Hendrix. This blog post will take a look at the history of this national holiday, what it celebrates, and how you can get in on the fun!
Why National Day the Music Died Day?
The day that we all commemorate the unfortunate passing of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and JP Richardson is now known as National Day Music Died. These three artists were victims in one airplane accident which saw them die on February 3rd, 1956 at age 22 – 17 years old; 28-year-old J P Richardson was hit by another plane when he parachuted out after bailing out earlier than expected due to engine failure.
The original passage does not have any emotion behind it so I added some history about how this whole event unfolded while also adding detail such as what types of aircraft were involved (two different planes).
History Of National Day the Music Died Day
The day the music died follows an event when Richie, Richardson, and Buddy were out on tour having played at Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake. The trio had just about arrived at their next destination which was Moorhead where they would play next; however, things took a turn for worse as firstly someone hit them with their car then shot both musicians dead!
How can we celebrate National Day the Music Died Day:
- Playing the band’s music
The National Day the Music Died is observed every year on June 5th. To celebrate, you can play their music or watch performances online to learn more about this event that many musicians have found to be important in the history of Rock n’ Roll!
- Observing a moment of silence
On 29th July 2005, four people lost their lives in the crash of KLM Flight 5103. One man died when he was trying to rescue a child from the burning jumbo jet and three others were killed by inhaling toxic fumes caused by aviation fuel combustion which also led to respiratory failure on board once they reached land after being deployed as emergency rescuers with other survivors who had been evacuated earlier due them having less serious injuries than themselves at that stage while another perished later after all got out alive but sadly couldn’t be saved because treatment wasn’t available until much later – just over two years later actually!. To commemorate this day we have observed a moment’s silence wherever you are so pay homage or respect for what these souls must’ve endured before their early departure from this world.
- Visiting the site of the plane crash
Many people come to this site on the 3rd of February every year not only for themselves but also in support of those who have been impacted by their loved ones’ accidents.
- Posting on social media
This is a great way of making sure that the world never forgets these amazing singers and their pilots. It would be wonderful if you could help us raise awareness for this cause by posting some flyers around your neighborhood so people are reminded who they were!
