The 1959 Winter Dance Party Tour had a tremendous impact on Rock and Roll / Popular music. Although the tour had a tragic event, there was still some life changing / positive things that happened because of it. Here’s a good example:
On Jan. 31, 1959, the Winter Dance Party, featuring Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens & The Big Bopper played at The Armory in Duluth, MN. A seventeen year old named Robert Zimmerman was in attendance & became inspired to become a musician after attending this concert.
Robert Zimmerman is better known today as Bob Dylan. Dylan spoke of the significance of seeing Holly at the Armory while accepting the 1998 Grammy Award.
The power of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
