Song Inspirations

Buddy Holly, 'Peggy Sue'

Buddy Holly joined the long and uncomfortable tradition of writing a song for another man’s wife with this ode to a former classmate at Texas' Lubbock High. The song had a working title of “Cindy Lou” after Holly’s niece, but was changed after drummer Jerry Allison went through a breakup with his girlfriend, Peggy Sue Gerron. The two later married. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by AP Images)
