The Crickets


The Crickets were the backing band formed by singer/songwriter Buddy Holly in the 1950s. It consisted of Jerry Allison (drums), Joe B Mauldin (bass) and Nikki Sullivan (rhythm guitar). Many believe that The Crickets chose their name while listening to a playback of "I'm Gonna Love You Too." This is not true; the name was chosen while going through an encyclopedia of names. Other names had been considered including THE SCOUNDRELS and THE SPIDERS.
