Diazm9951. Yes A Very Sad Movie, and "LA BAMBA". Is a Great Song as well! That was 1959, and we lost Buddy Holly too. Tragic lost. Two really great singers. However, their music lives on. :-)

Ritchie Valens actually didn't speak Spanish , he memorized la bamba and sang it well.

One of the pioneers of my music.
Of course leaving us much too soon.
One positive note: When our heroes die so young, in our minds and hearts, they will be forever young.

Let's not forget Waylon Jennings who went on to a fabulous country carrer who gave his seat up on that plane to JP Richards aka the Big Bopper. He'd had to live with the regret when Buddy told him I hope you freeze your a** off on that bus. Which Waylon replied I hope your old plane crashes. And unfortunatel y it DID.
