Big Bopper's Casket on Display
The Big Bopper -- Jiles Richardson -- had one hit record ("Chantilly Lace") and then he died in the same plane crash that killed Buddy Holly in 1959. In 2007 he was dug out of his grave in Beaumont, Texas, and reburied in a new casket in a nicer part of the cemetery.
His original casket is now a featured exhibit at the Texas Musicians Museum, along with relics from other Texas stars, such as Janis Joplin's high school yearbook and an autographed jumpsuit worn by Tanya Tucker.
The museum moved in 2011 from its original location in Hillsboro to a new spot in Waxahachie, and brought all of its best exhibits along -- including the casket.
