I was a fan of Glenn Miller in the 50-60`s bought records of his music swing music as it was called.
I also liked the movie about him with Jimmy Stewart playing him.
The rumour was that his plane was accidently bombed by an American bombing raid while he was entertaing the troops during the war and we never saw or heard from him again.
Other great bands of that era were Tommy Dorsey ,Artie Shaw and Benny Goodman all excellent musos.
Thanks for the memory
