The Crickets – The Artist

The Crickets were an American rock and roll band from Lubbock, Texas, formed by singer-songwriter Buddy Holly in January 1957. Their first hit record, “That’ll Be the Day”, released in May 1957, was a hit in both the Uk and the US. The sleeve of their first album, The “Chirping” Crickets, shows the band line-up at the time: Holly on lead vocals and lead guitar, Niki Sullivan on rhythm guitar, Jerry Allison on drums, and Joe B. Mauldin on bass. The Crickets helped set the template for subsequent rock bands, such as the Beatles, with their guitar-bass-drums line-up, performing their own self-written material. After Holly’s death in 1959, the band continued to tour and record into the 1960s and beyond with other band members through to the 21st century.

Don’t Ever Change – The Song

Don’t Ever Change is a 1961 popular song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. Intended for The Everly Brothers but rejected by their management, it is one of the Goffin-King team’s lesser-known songs, although this version by The Crickets reached the top 5 in the United Kingdom (Jerry Naylor lead vocal). The Beatles performed the song on their BBC radio show Pop Go the Beatles, which was later released on their 1994 compilation Live at the BBC. 

The Car Gear Stick – The Shape

This record is modelled into a a car gear stick. A gear stick, gear lever, gearshift or shifter, more formally known as a transmission lever, is a metal lever attached to the transmission of an automobile. The term gear stick mostly refers to the shift lever of a manual transmission, while in an automatic transmission, a similar lever is known as a gear selector. A gear stick will normally be used to change gear whilst depressing the clutch pedal with the left foot to disengage the engine from the drivetrain and wheels.
