OK, first the rules. There are none but......If you have to look it up somewhere your cheating! Try not to cheat! mad

Feel free to add others.

These aren't really difficult but here goes.....

What was the name of the plane Buddy Holly died in?

For bonus points, who was supposed to be on that plane but gave up his seat at the last minute to a sick band member?

Well I can't think of the name of the plane but Eddie Cochrane was supposed to go but gave up his seat to Ritchie Valens. (Oh know dating myself again)

Ok, here's a shot in the dark. I am clueless as to what kind of plane it was, except that it was small. The person who was supposed to be on the plane was a country musician--I think, Waylon Jennings, but maybe Johnny Cash. Country fans, please don't flame me too bad if I'm way off on this. I was barely born (or maybe not born at all) when this happened. shocked shocked shocked

Renauda, you are red hot tonight! American Pie it is! Two smiley faces! smile smile

OK, here's another easy one.

Paul McCartney had the tune to Yesterday in his head for a long time. He played it quite frequently during rehersals and recording sessions. What was the working title of the tune?

And for bonus points sing me the first line of the working lyrics. wink

Lucy, your right on the title (Scrambled Eggs).

I believe the lyrics went like this:

Scrambled eggs, oh my darlin' how I love your legs!

But your close enough. Two smileys for you too! smile smile

BTW, it's OK if someone else has some trivia to add. wink

No. As a hint the person is a musician.

Not a drummer. Not Pete Best if that is what you were thinking.
