Crickets Buddy Holly and Jerry Allison both saw western The Searchers, where "That'll be the day" is a catchphrase used by John Wayne. The title of that film inspired Mersey beat group The Searchers, while their fellow citizens The Quarry Men (with John, Paul & George) recorded The Crickets' song. The Beatles as we all know, were named after The Crickets. That'll Be The Day When I Die got echoed in The Day The Music Died, the theme in Don McLean's American Pie, about the death of Buddy, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. To round it all off: That'll Be The Day was the title of the Buddy Hollywood biopic with Gary Busey.
