He died young, but his music lives on

27 Jan

Today was a bummer of a day for the Ankeny Kramers.

So Maisa and I listened to Ritchie Valens’ “Come On, Let’s Go” to lighten the mood.

Valens was born and raised in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. He found fame with a handful of big rock ‘n roll hits, and he died in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, on Feb. 3, 1959. He was 17 years old.

Maisa also enjoyed “Donna,” another Valens hit single:

The bilingual Valens is best known for “La Bamba.”
