La Bamba
Music, ambition, success and tragedy all played their part in the life of young Mexican-American Ricardo Valenzuela, better known as Richie Valens. Raised in a poverty-stricken area in the San Fernando Valley, the talented singer shot to fame at the tender age of 17 and had a string of hits - only to die prematurely in the plane crash that also claimed the life of Buddy Holly.
