A music producer predicted the death of Buddy Holly
Joe Meek was a relatively unknown music producer during his time, but we now know him for a couple things: the inventor of reverb, sampling and overdubbing, and predicting the death of Buddy Holly, then going crazy afterwards.
One night, he was present at a Tarot reading that read “February the third,” “Buddy Holly,” and “Dies.” A huge Holly fan, he tried to reach out to the singer, but couldn’t. Luckily enough, Feb 3, 1958 turned out ok. Meeks finally got in touch with Holly, relayed his message, and Holly told him he’d be careful every Feb 3rd. On that date in 1959, Holly, Richie Valens and JP Richardson died in a plane crash.
