About the author (2008)

Peggy Sue Gerron was born in Olton, Texas on June 15, 1940. She met Buddy Holly while in high school and was part of his circle of friends because her boyfriend Jerry Allison was the drummer in Holly's band. Allison asked Holly to change the name of a song from Cindy Lou to Peggy Sue in the hopes of solidifying his on-and-off relationship with Gerron. The song Peggy Sue was released in 1957 and rose to No. 3 on the Billboard charts. Her memoir, Whatever Happened to Peggy Sue? written with Glenda Cameron, was published in 2008. She died on October 1, 2018 at the age of 78.
