Biography
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. Holly's manager(Norman Petty) and owner of the Norman Petty Studio in Clovis NM decided to keep the chirping in the record, but this is in no way tied to the origin of the band's name.
