Description


Incredibly rare hand-painted poster, 28 x 36, alerting the public of the sudden and tragic deaths of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper, and for fans to tune in to radio station WEBR, a station out of Buffalo, New York. Done in black, green, and red paint on a heavy board, the headline at the top announces “Dead in Crash,” going on to list the names of the three performers and their most recent hits, “Ritchie Valens, His hit was ‘Donna,’” “Buddy Holly, His hit was ‘Peggysue,’” and “Big Bopper, His hit was ‘Chantilly Lace.’” Some scattered mild soiling and small stains, not detracting from the overall impressive visual appearance of the piece, and some corner bumps and creases, otherwise fine condition. All three stars were killed when their single engine plane crashed shortly after take-off from an Iowa airport on February 3, 1959. Interesting to note that Valens is listed over Holly, most likely due to the fact ‘Donna’ and ‘La Bamba’ were still on the chart. A very unique reminder prepared in haste to keep fans up to date.
