I passed the old Drive-In, the one we used to go to when I was a kid, that time we saw ‘Giant’, for instance, on the giant tilted screen, and I wanted to be cool and edgy as James Dean, and how after the movie when we were driving home around midnight, we heard on he radio that a plane had just fallen from the sky during a snowstorm over a corn field in Iowa and a chill filled our car the day the music died.
which movie star did you want to be like when you were a kid?
did you watch movies at drive-ins with your folks? do you remember any particular film?
what were you doing when you heard about the deaths of Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Richie Valens?
