RIP Bobby Vee

He passed away at the age of 73.

I was fortunate enough to meet and talk to Bobby Vee during my WJMK days. Super down to earth, great guy. And he had one of the greatest show biz starts in history.

He took the stage for the first time as a fill-in for a rock star who couldn't make it to the show. The rock star was Buddy Holly, and the reason he couldn't make it was the plane crash that took his life.

Among the people who later played in the band with Bobby Vee was another future famous Bobby: Bob Dylan.

This is my favorite Bobby Vee tune...
