This is the site where the airplane carrying Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and JP Richardson crashed, killing everyone on the board including the pilot. Years later Don Mclean paid tribute in his song – American Pie with the words “The day music died” signifying this unfortunate event.

Guess, there is a movie made too with the same name.
