    Dale Winton passed away a few days ago. He wasn't one of my favourite TV presenters but his life was so sad I just thought he should be remembered here anyway.

    Peggy Sue has died.
    Peggy Sue Gerron, the inspiration for Buddy Holly's 1957 hit song, has died in Lubbock, Texas, aged 78.
    While she was the focus of the single, Peggy Sue was in fact in a relationship with Buddy Holly's band mate in The Crickets, Jerry Allison.
    She and Allison would marry in 1958, inspiring Holly's song, Peggy Sue Got Married, released after Holly was killed in a plane crash in 1959.
    Gerron died at the University Medical Center in Lubbock early on Monday.
    Born in Olton, Texas, in 1940, Gerron grew up in Lubbock and went to high school with Holly and Allison.

    He played the part to perfection.

    As someone said on another thread; he kicked the bouquet.

    R.I.P.

    Aw no, so sad to hear that. Great actor.


    It wasn't bucket, it was booo kayyy.... :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,108 ✭✭✭Jellybaby1


    He said that the Richard Bucket part was a curse as it was what most people knew him for though he was a Shakespearian actor and appeared in many other theatre and film productions. He played that part brilliantly though, and yes Richard should have left her years ago!!

    To a certain extent it's the same for Patricia Routledge, she's an amazing, amazing dramatic actress and a trained opera singer (IIRC), but the role of Hyacinth will always haunt her.

    Her Alan Bennett monologues are beyond fantastic.

    And Arthur Murphy of RTEs Mailbag. He made it to 90.



    Apparently he had a music career, produced by George Martin, under the name of Mark Dwayne.

    Gotta love a good Haynes manual, probably the only book that accrues in stature when it gets oil-stains on every page.

    I'm older than Minecraft goats.
