Ritchie Valens- Come On, Let's Go (1958)

Classic music video featuring Ritchie Valens performing his 1958 hit "Come On, Let's Go". The following year Valens died in a tragic plane crash, along with musicians Buddy Holly and J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson. The pilot Roger Peterson was also killed. This tragedy inspired singer Don McLean's 1971 ballad "American Pie", and immortalized February 3 as "The Day the Music Died".
