Ritchie Valens

Ritchie Valens (born Ricardo Steven Valenzuela, May 13, 1941 – February 3, 1959) was a pioneer of rock and roll and a forefather to the Latin Rock movement. His professional career lasted a period of only eight months, during which time he recorded some of the most influential songs of the 1950s rock and roll era. His best known song, "La Bamba," is one of the very first Latin Rock songs to become a hit, making Valens the father of the Spanish rock and roll movement. On February 3, 1959, on what has become known as The Day the Music Died, Valens was killed in a small-plane crash in Iowa, a tragedy which also claimed the lives of fellow musicians Buddy Holly and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson.
