1. I got them all, although I was born in '69
maybe it's because I've got a trivial mind?

4. Got them all, but 13 is slightly wrong
American Pie was not the name of the airplane.

http://www.snopes.com/music/artists/amerpie.htm

Also, splitting hairs, but I think of the day the music died as being the death of all three men, Ritchie Valens, J.P Richardson ( The Big Bopper), and Buddy Holly. But MR. Mclean may disagree with me. :-)

18. I never like that song... amazing because I love Roberta Flack
I just could never get into it.


I didn't know the history of it either. I'm going to have to check out the words again.

16. Now that I think about it
He did refer to "his widowed bride" so maybe it was just Holly.

12. I never heard the plane being called that.
But I think it is all three of the musicians. At least I choose to think so too!

27. Kudos!
Everyone knows Buddy Holly died in that crash.... but who remembers that Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper died too?

Respect is due.

25. I was born in 66 and got all but one
however, 13 is highly debatable.... Don has refused to ever explain that song and it's meaning. Lots of people think it's about Buddy Holly, Don won't confirm it....
