Bobby Vee's storied music career involved a who's who of rock 'n' roll heroes, including Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan and the Beatles. Even after his own teen-idol fame and Billboard chart success, though, he famously remained a humble, hardworking Midwesterner who settled into a quiet life in St. Joseph, Minn., with his wife of more than 50 years, Karen.

Vee, 73, died early Monday of complications from Alzheimer's disease. He had been in hospice care at a facility in Rogers, according to family.

Thanks for posting this. There's barely a mention (if anything) when performing artists of this era die.

I always liked Bobby Vee. I used to confuse him with Bobby Rydell lol. They were close in age and had hits around the same time.
