Peggy Sue Gerron was the real life inspiration for the Buddy Holly classic “Peggy Sue.” She was the girlfriend of Crickets drummer Jerry Allison. Holly had originally written the song as “Cindy Lou” for his niece. After Allison and Peggy Sue broke up, Allison asked Holly to change the title to “Peggy Sue,” in hopes of getting back together with her. Allison and Peggy Sue did reunite and were married for most of the 1960s before breaking up.

She would remarry and have children, becoming a dental assistant. She was a ham radio enthusiast and would often talk to fans about her time spent with Buddy Holly and the Crickets.
