Story about this misheard lyric by: Buckeye Scott

This tune is an 1988 cover of a '50s Buddy Holly hit. It's on the soundtrack for the 1988 flick "Cocktail" which stars Tom Cruise. I heard it on the radio and it sounded like JCM was referring to Stevie Ray Vaughn, whom I had seen live in concert in California the year before.
