Peggy Sue
« on: October 03, 2018, 08:58:33 AM »
The real Peggy Sue, (Peggy Sue Gerrin) Died Monday, Oct. 1 at the hospital in Lubbock, Texas. She was 78.

I read her book "Whatever Happened to Peggy Sue?"

Sadly, another piece of childhood gone.

Yes, Jiminy I think.
I wouldn't take her to a dog fight even if she had a chance to win.

I assume this is the Buddy Holly "Peggy Sue"?  Didn't she marry one of the Crickets??

Yes , She was the Buddy Holly Peggy Sue. She married the Cricket's drummer.

    Hi:

    If I remember correctly, The song "Peggy Sue" was written by the drummer of the Crickets just for that girl.

                                                                                             Boy you guys must be old!!!

I sat in the Sun Cafe (local teen hangout coffee 5 cents) and played all his records the week I learned he had been killed. Wurlitzer, 6 for a quarter. I'm 77. Still love his music. y1

The song, "Peggy Sue" was written by  Buddy Holly, Norman Petty, and Jerry Allison.

Allison only supplied the Name "Peggy Sue" to the song.

Dee is correct. It was originally penned as “Cindy Lou”
