First question: I recall that the name "Teddy Boys" comes from the line in the Buddy Holly song "I'm Ready ready Teddy, to . . . Rock and Roll". Is this true?
Second: How did the Teddies relate to the Rockers of the Mods vs Rockers era? Were the Rockers just latter day Teddies?
Finally, how does the Teddy phenomenon relate to the Skiffle music phenomenon? The Beatles started out as Skifflers (The Quarrymen), and sure looked like Rockers before they got the Pudding Bowl haircuts.
Very interesting stuff. Thanks for the thread.
