Oh man! Im all teared up after reading this thread again, I was 14 at the time and Ritchie had a number one hit in Canada with "Oh Donna", well it was #1 with me since the gf's name at the time was Donna, we used to dance real slow and I held her close when they played it at the weekly highschool sock hop... jeez I miss her , she'd be a grandma today!! They played it here in AU on the radio last nite about midnite. Back in '59 I found out when I got home from school, mom told me about the crash, she was only 34 at the time and although she always said she didn't like this 'new fangled rock and roll' I think she shed a tear that day. just sayin!!...... sniff,sniff.. jeez us old farts aren't sposed to feel like this after 53 years are we!!??
