This is the true story of Ritchie Valens, a young rock and roll singer who tragically died in a plane crash at age 17. The film follows Ritchie from his days in Pacoima, California where he and his family make a meager living working on farms to his rise as a star. The film also focuses on Ritchie's friendship and rivalry with his older brother Bob Morales and his relationship with Donna Ludwig, his girlfriend.Written by

The patch on Bob's vest is that of the Galloping Goose Motorcycle Club. In 1947, Galloping Goose was one of many clubs that came to Hollister, California during the AMA Gypsy Tour motorcycle rally, which led to a riot. Galloping Goose, with just over a dozen members, was there by invitation. See more »
At the welcome home party, Richie's brother asks if he wants a "7 & 7" and hands him a drink. The drink in the glass is dark colored (like a cola), not one made with 7-up. See more »

When the movie was originally released, the second half of the end credits detailing all the musical numbers, was originally shown in silence. On the DVD version as well as all broadcasts since the DVD release, the music credits scroll with "Come On Let's Go" playing in the background. See more »
Under-rated melodrama with excellent music by Los Lobos and others. Young Lou Diamond Phillips gives an excellent energetic performance and Esi Morles is at his very best as the sometimes neglected hoodlum brother. A great cast from top to bottom saves what could have been an all too sudsy script.
