1. Are there qualities or aspects of Buddy's personality that stand out most in their minds todsy (perhaps qualities or aspects that have been largely ignored by biographers and the mainstream media}?

2. How do they think Buddy would have adapted to the 1960s and the British Invasion? Is it more likely that he would he have followed the new direction that rock-and-roll took in the 1960s, or would he have jumped ship/moved behind the scenes into production? (Perhaps significantly, Buddy was not much older than many of the rock icons of the 1960s.)

3. What are Jerry's recollections of touring with Chuck Berry in the late 1950s? Was Berry a mentor to them?

4. Sonny might have more insight into this question because he is a guitar player, but it would be very interesting to learn how Buddy developed his skills on the guitar. Early on Buddy took guitar lessons with Clyde Hankins, but who else did the guitar players in the "early Crickets" learn from, and how did they bring their playing to the next level once they started to take off, writing their own material and doing covers of top 40 hits by other artists? The previous question about the demo tapes of "Mona" ties into this question, because the "Mona" "tapes" reflect a lot of effort to get the sound captured on the Bo Diddley recording by duplicating BD's chord changes, strumming technique, use of echo/reverb, etc.

5. What were Buddy's favorite places to hang out in Lubbock and New York?
