- ...with the death of singer Jenni Rivera in a small private plane in Mexico, it reminds me again how common these of musical acts in small planes seem to be. It’s almost like a recording industry cliche, though certainly I don’t mean that to diminish the personal tragedy involved.
I also get that it’s very difficult to get a real sense of ‘commonness’ with high profile events spanning periods of many decades.
But just off the top of my head:
‘The Big Bopper’
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Half of Lynyrd Skynyrd
