Aww, Peggy Sue

The real Peggy Sue of Buddy Holly song fame died today:
She married drummer Jerry Allison, from Holly's rock 'n' roll band The Crickets. Her son-in-law, Tom Stathos, on Monday reminisced and told KCBD-TV in Lubbock that the song "Peggy Sue" initially had a different name. "It was originally going to be Cindy Lou (Holly's niece) and that he (Allison) wanted to impress Peggy Sue so he got Buddy to change the name."
I've always read that Allison kept fucking up during the recording until Buddy Holly threatened he'd change the name back to Cindy Lou
