Timeline

2001

Posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

1993

Was one of the performers featured on a set of stamps of rock and blues legends issued by the United States Postal Service in June 1993.

1990

He was posthumously awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 6733 Hollywood Blvd. on May 11, 1990 (two days before what would have been his 49th birthday).

1959

His appearance in Go, Johnny, Go! (1959), filmed sometime in 1958, appears to have been filmed prior to his recordings of "Donna" and "Come On, Let's Go", as he is singing in the style of Little Richard. He had not yet adapted his own vocal style that he used on his later 1958 recordings. Interestingly, "Framed", the B-side to "Come On, Let's Go", is a reworking of Little Richard's "Miss Ann", but there Ritchie sounds more like the Ritchie Valens that his fans came to know.

1958

On December 27, 1958, he appeared on The Dick Clark Show (1958), live from New York City from 7:30-8:00 pm. Also on that show were Jackie Wilson, The Crests, Jimmy Clanton and The Diamonds. At that time, Ritchie and others were also appearing at the Lowe's State Theater, as part of Alan Freed's ten-day holiday show. After their performances on "The Dick Clark Show", at the Little Theater, Ritchie and the other performers traveled a few city blocks, within New York City's Times Square area for their nightly revue at the Lowe's State Theater.

1957

He was attending Pacoima Junior High School in Pacoima, CA, on Jan. 31, 1957, when a mid-air collision occurred between an Air Force fighter plane and a civilian passenger plane high above the school. Debris from the crash fell on the school, killing three students--one of whom was Valens' best friend. He developed an intense fear of flying after that, and would fly only when absolutely necessary. Ironically, he died in an airplane crash two years after the incident.
