    George Lucas based American Graffiti on his teenage years in Modesto in the early 1960s. Universal greenlighted the movie after six other studios had rejected it. Lucas and co-producer Gary Kurtz were given a very small budget. When a third co-producer, Francis Ford Coppola, joined the project, lo and behold, the budget was increased!

    "All right, sweethearts, what are you waiting for, breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the Corps! A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm. Every meal is a banquet. Every paycheck a fortune. Every formation a parade. I love the Corps!"

    Al Matthews, who served with the US Marine Corps in Việt Nam and was honored with two Purple Hearts, played Gunnery Sergeant Apone in James Cameron's 1986 film Aliens. In 2013, Matthews reprised the role, voicing Apone in an Aliens video game. He also had small roles in Ragtime, Rough Cut, Superman III, The Omen III and several other movies.

    Vasquez appeared (uncredited) as Angel Ganz in two episodes of Sons Of Anarchy in 2011. I think every actor who could ride a motorcycle appeared on that show at one time or another! Vasquez also had roles in episodes of ER, CSI:NY, Simon & Simon, How I Met Your Mother and other series.

    Before forming Jefferson Starship, Marty Balin (real name: Martyn Jerel Buchwald) recorded solo and led a folk group called the Town Criers. He released several more solo singles in the 1980s. The biggest was Hearts, which reached #8 in 1981.

    Marty Balin, a co-founder of Jefferson Airplane and a member of its later incarnation Jefferson Starship, whose high and soulful voice defined many of both groups' songs, died September 27 at age 76. The cause of death was not announced. Although Balin had his greatest impact as one of the architects of the musical counterculture during his 1965-71 tenure in Jefferson Airplane, he had his greatest commercial success when he rejoined the remnants of that group a few years later in Jefferson Starship, as the sole lead singer on both of that band's singles to reach the top ten, Miracles in 1975 and Count On Me in 1978.

    In 1957, Peggy Sue Garron was dating Jerry Allison, Buddy Holly's drummer. They later married and were together for 11 years. Holly had written a song called Cindy Lou but changed it to Peggy Sue at Allison's request. The record label showed Holly and Allison as the writers but Allison later admitted Holly wrote the entire song. So did Peggy Sue Garron really "inspire" the song? I vote no.
