Although I was a small child in 1959, I vividly remember my big sister, who was 17, crying uncontrollably on the day the music died. For years after that she and my brother wore the labels off of the 45s , spinning the music that they loved so much. So I guess it was destiny that I am moved not only by Ritchie's music, but of his life and its impact on the world of rock and roll. It is wonderful that you have preserved these memories for all to share,, thanks and God bless you all!
