The Big Bopper for The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame










Most people know The Big Bopper (J P Richardson) as the writer and singer of Chantilly Lace and a man that died in the plane crash alongside Buddy Holy and Ritchie Valens. But there is so much more to this man than people know, for example:

He wrote 'White Lightnin' - A number one hit for George Jones and the song that launched his career

He wrote' Running Bear' - A number one hit for Johnny Preston

He invented the music video and made the first one in 1958

He predicted the advent of music television in 1959 and was working toward building a studio to make music videos until his untimely death. 

He holds the world record for continuous radio broadcasting (5 days, 2 hours and 8 minutes)

This man was a true innovator at his craft and deserves a place amongst the greats of the music world in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
