      From "The History of Rock & Roll, Part 1" by Ed Ward: Buddy Holly's band was almost named "Buddy Holly and the Beetles" instead of "Buddy Holly and the Crickets" !!

        And then the Quarrymen would have had to rename themselves The Crickits!

          TRUE.  But it was the drummer Jerry Allison (and Peggy Sue's first husband) who suggested not to be called the Beetles because they bug was easy to be squashed.  He mentioned that in the documentary "The Real Buddy Holly Story" co-produced by Paul McCartney's MPL.
