The diligent understudy understands that accidents really do happen.

For Don McLean, it was the Day the Music Died, but for fifteen-year-old Bobby Velline, it was the tragic day his star was born. The plane that crashed in an Iowa field on the night of February 3, 1959, was taking Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper north to Moorhead, Minnesota -- to a show that the future Bobby Vee was planning to attend as a fan, but instead ended up performing in as the only local kid who could play the chords and sing the lyrics to every song his idol Buddy Holly had ever recorded. Within eighteen months of his tragic big break, this wholesome and handsome middle-American teenager was in the capable grip of the starmaker machine, and instead of singing That'll Be The Day in the shower, he was singing the Goffin/King gem Take Good Care Of My Baby on American Bandstand. A quintessential member of the constellation Regifted, Bobby Vee understood that there is a time to mourn and a time to seize the day. Will you be as ready as your Birthstar was to set your qualms aside when opportunity finally knocks?
