The song was initially titled “Cindy Lou” after Buddy’s niece, but Crickets
drummer Jerry Allison convinced Buddy to change the title to “Peggy Sue”,
named after Jerry’s girlfriend Peggy Sue Gerron. Allison and Gerron were
later married. The record reached #3 on the Billboard chart. Many music
critics regard this as Holly’s all-time best recording.
