Word out of Lubbock Texas that pretty Peggy Sue has died, at the age of 78.  The person who inspired the 1958 Buddy Holly hit tune was his high school friend.  She married, though later divorced, drummer Jerry Allison from Holly's rock and roll band The Crickets. 

I must have missed it back in 2008 when she released her autobiography "Whatever Happened to Peggy Sue?", marking the 50th anniversary of the song.  She based the memoir on diary entries during the time she knew Holly.

Think I'll give that one a read now.  Pretty Peggy Sue.
