(Vee) "Take good care of my baby."

Bobby Vee, the singer whose career was born from a tragedy, has died. Vee's career began when he took the stage as a teenager to fill in after the 1959 plane crash that killed rock `n' roll stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson, also known as "The Big Bopper":

(Vee) "The night has a thousand eyes."

The 73-year-old, who's hits included "Take Good Care of My Baby" as well as "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes", died Monday of advanced Alzheimer's Disease, according to his son. Vee was only 15-years-old when he took the stage in Minnesota, after that plane crash in Iowa. Vee died peacefully surrounded by family members.
