    Many people refer to February 3, 1959, as.....

    "Many people refer to February 3, 1959, as The Day The Music Died. "

    The above sentence is from one of my grammar books and I think it has an error in it.

    I mean, there's no need to put 'to' after 'refer' since it is followed 'as'.


    Am I right?


    Thx!

    You're not right. I'm not sure why you think "as" negates the need for a "to."

    I mean, there's no need to put 'to' after 'refer' Oh yes there is since it is followed 'as'. That's irrelevant.

    Sorry - no. The way they refer to it is 'The Day the Music Died' => They ref to it as 'The Day the Music Died'.
