From my guestbook
"PEGGY SUE, Peggy Sue, pretty pretty pretty pretty
Peggy Sue, oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue."
Here is what PEGGY SUE GERRON, the real PEGGY SUE, told in an
interview published by the "LANCE Monthly" in July, 2004 :
Peggy Sue Gerron was a typical '50s teenage girl from West Texas during a time of innocence and uncomplicated living.
Peggy liked boys, wore bobby socks and Peter Pan collars, went to dances,
double-dated, cruised drive-in restaurants with her friends, wanted to be
liked, and, in all likelihood, had visions that one day she would marry and
live happily ever after.
But then she met Buddy Holly and her life changed forever.
Dies ist Peggy Sue Gerron, "die" Peggy Sue, nach der einer der Superhits von Buddy Holly benannt wurde.
Der Titel "Cindy Lou" stand eigentlich schon fest, aber Schlagzeuger Jerry Ivan Allison bat Buddy darum, doch damit seiner Freundin Peggy Sue Gerron ein Geschenk zu machen.
Jerry Allison heiratete Peggy Sue 1958, leider wurde diese Verbindung aber wieder getrennt im Jahre 1966.

Peggy, what are your thoughts on today's mainstream music?
Peggy Sue Gerron:
If you mean the mainstream music [such as] Eminem, Janet Jackson,
and all [of which] falls in that notch, I think we have really lost a lot in
the industry. I find myself playing the old favorites. There are many
groups that I enjoy today, but I have learned to like some country. I
guess that I am rockabilly. I have always played the classics and still
like them. It depends on what mood I am in. I get so thrilled when I
hear a new song such as "What Ever Happened to Peggy Sue" by
Bobby Vee and Tim Rice, and another that I hope will be out soon - a
song called " CAPROCK " by Jim Ratts.(It's available !!)
you and me like the
wonderful music of
our mutual Buddy
and the tribute songs
Jim Ratts and his
band "Runaway Express"

Peggy Sue, Du und ich lieben die wundervolle Musik von Buddy Holly und
besonders die Art, wie Jim Ratts sie in seinen Tributes interpretiert.
