On the morning of February 3 1959, the world was waking up to the awful news that young musicians Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens–who had won his seat via a coin toss–had perished in a plane crash along with their pilot. The event was immortalised through song by Don MacLean and “American Pie” is widely recognised as “one of the most successful and debated songs of the 20th century”. Alex examines the astrology of the day the music died.
