When Buddy and Bob Montgomery opened for Elvis in Lubbock in 1955, Echo met Elvis backstage and turned down a kiss from him. She explains I wasn`t that kind of girl.

 

In 1959 The Crickets` recorded a tribute to Buddy written by member Sonny Curtis, "(I Love You) More Than I Can Say". It was later a charted hit for Bobby Vee in 1961 (#61) and Leo Sayer in 1980 (#02).
