Love this photo of the late Bobby Vee and The Crickets – presumably taken after the death of Buddy Holly, whom Bobby idolized. Years ago we owned a vintage Scopitone (a video juke box) and we probably played Bobby’s song The Night Has a Thousand Eyes over a thousand times.
The amateur video features girls in bikinis twisting frantically at a beach party. His song Come Back When You Grow Up Girl always makes us think of back when we were in 8th or 9th grade walking home from school. High school boys old enough to drive would pull over and toss a coin out the window saying “Here’s a dime – call me in two years!”
