The 1973 album Remnants and the 1974 album A Long Way from Lubbock featured the sextet of Allison, Curtis, Krikorian, Grech, Lee and van Maarth. In 1978, the award-winning film The Buddy Holly Story, starring Gary Busey as Holly, presented an engaging but inaccurate depiction of the band's early years. Allison and Mauldin's names were altered to Jesse Charles and Ray Bob Simmons, respectively, to avoid legal action due to their rights being sold to another film production that was also working on Holly's story
The Crickets are an American rock and roll band from Lubbock, Texas, formed by singer/songwriter Buddy Holly in the 1950s. Their first hit record was "That'll Be the Day", released in 1957. The single became number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in Billboard magazine on September 23. They helped set the template for subsequent rock bands such as the Beatles, with their guitar-bass-drums arrangements and tendency to write their own material
The Crickets were lead guitarist and vocalist Buddy Holly, drummer Jerry Allison, bassist Joe B. Mauldin, and rhythm guitarist Niki Sullivan. Sullivan dropped out after a little more than one year to resume his education. In 1957 Norman Petty arranged for the Crickets' recordings to be marketed under two separate names. The solo vocals were released as being by Buddy Holly, and the songs with dubbed backing vocals were issued as being by the Crickets. Petty reasoned correctly that disc jockeys might be reluctant to program a single artist too heavily but would play records by two seemingly different groups. The 1973 album Remnants and the 1974 album A Long Way from Lubbock featured the sextet of Allison, Curtis, Krikorian, Grech, Lee and van Maarth.

The Crickets were Buddy Holly’s group from 1956 to 1958, contributing significantly to his sound and success. As a self-contained group that wrote their own songs, Buddy Holly and the Crickets served to inspire a torrent of bands that followed in the Sixties, including the Beatles and the Hollies. Although there’s no question that Holly was the central figure-lead singer, lead guitarist and chief songwriter-the Crickets contributed significantly to Holly’s sound and success. It was followed by Remnants (1973) and Long Way from Lubbock (1975), which found the Crickets joined by British musicians Albert Lee on guitar and Ric Grech on bass. In 1978, four original Crickets-Allison, Mauldin, Sullivan and Curtis-performed together at a Buddy Holly fan-club convention.
