Linda


Buddy Clark (Samuel Goldberg) died at 37 when his plane crashed on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. Five other passengers survived the 1947 accident. Buddy hit the top ten with songs like "I'll Dance at Your Wedding", "How Are Things in Glocca Mora", "Peg O'My Heart" and "Linda".

Jack Lawrence composed the song at the request of lawyer Lee Eastman for his daughter. Linda Eastman became a noted photographer and wife of Paul McCartney.

When growing up Jan and Dean's buddies included Beach Boy Bruce Johnston and drummer Sandy Nelson. Jan and Dean's "Linda" was produced by Jan and hit the top thirty in 1963.
