He was up and coming at the time that he died, so I think we'd probably have gotten a few more hits out of him. He was important, already, as a Mexican-American rock n roller with actual hit songs and I can easily imagine his influence reaching even further in blues/rock/traditional Mexican music hybrids. Who wouldn't love to hear another La Bamba?

Man, do think he'd have toured with the Bobby Fuller Four?

I don't think he'd be a household name today without the tragedy, but his songs would still be known.

Also, the commentary track on La Bamba is one of the most entertaining I've ever heard.
