Ok, with all these Mother's Day events as well as the final day of the Barclays Premier League, we ALMOST forgot that today, May 13, rocker Ritchie Valens would have been 71 years old. We all know what happened on a cold February night in 1959, when Valens died at 17 years old, after becoming one of rock n roll's rising stars.

Hit it.

Feliz cumple, Ritchie.
