"Winter Dance Party" Tour Buddy Holly The Big Bopper Ritchie Valens Dion Carl Bunch Waylon Jennings Tommy Allsup Frankie Sardo Autograph ITEM SOLD
A piece of lined notebook paper about 7 1/2" x 8 1/4" signed in pencil by the Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly, Dion, Waylon Jennings, Tommy Allsup, Frankie Sardo and Carl Bunch. The signatures are believed to have been signed January 25 1959 in Mankato MN, shortly before the spirit of the performers turned sour by the grueling bus rides and horrible weather they had to endure. I know of no other item signed by this many of the performers who were on that tour. The only ones on the original leg of the tour who did not sign this paper are the other Belmonts who backed up Dion. A very significant set of signatures from the ill-fated Winter Dance Party tour, signed about a week before the tragic deaths of the three headliners. In very good shape.
