Jim Croce

The 30-year-old Croce had already made the charts multiple times with "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" and "You Don't Mess Around With Jim" when a light plane carrying him and four bandmates crashed shortly after taking off from Nachitoches, La., on Sept. 20, 1973, the day his single "I Got A Name" was released.
