Moore and Peggy Sue Gerron (the Peggy Sue who inspired the hit song“Peggy Sue”) calling for Dwyer Flying Service to release the hidden wreckage ofthe Beechcraft Bonanza that crashed in a frigid Clear Lake, Iowa cornfield onFebruary 3, 1959 killing Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J. P. “The Big Bopper”Richardson, and pilot Roger Peterson.Appearing on The Mancow Experience radio show on March 17, Moore andPeggy Sue discussed the controversies, conspiracies, and myths surroundingthe crash that Don McLean dubbed as “The Day the Music Died” in his hit song“American Pie.”In the interview, Mancow said, “Today I am calling for the reopening of theinvestigation. . . . What happened? Let’s get this thing started.”While researching for his book Hey Buddy, Moore uncovered new informationabout the doomed charter flight that took off in bad weather with aninexperienced 21-year-old pilot. Himself a pilot, Moore is calling for a team ofexperts to re-evaluate the crash and plane wreckage based on recent claimsfrom the owners of the plane that they have the wreckage and the truth behindwhat happened that fateful night has never been told.
“They claim that the truth has never been told, that they hold the wreckage, andthat the truth is in the wreckage,” Moore says. “If that’s true, I’ve assembled ateam of investigators, one of them a now retired lead investigator from theNational Transportation Safety Board, who wants to examine the wreckage. Andso we’re asking them to just give us access to it.”Peggy Sue agrees, “I would like very much for that to happen.”Moore asks that anyone who wants to know the truth about the plane wreckageand what really happened on the flight sign the petition onwww.heybuddyquest.com.
