Buddy Knox !

Tadaaaa, here's our humble introduction to (tadaaaa):
Ok, Buddy Wayne Knox was born in 1933 in the tiny farming community of Happy, Texas .
One fine day, after performing on the same 1956 radio show as fellow Texan Roy Orbison and his "Teen Kings" band, Orbison suggested Knox go see record producer Norman Petty at his studio in Clovis, New Mexico. Knox recorded three songs at Petty's studio, most notably "Party Doll" that later was released on the Roulette label and went to No.1 in 1957 !
In the early 1960s Buddy signed with Liberty Records and released a number of more mainstream pop records, featuring string arrangements and vocal backup singers.
Buddy Knox died of lung cancer in 1999. He is buried in Dreamland Cemetery, in Canyon, Texas.

Buddy Knox :

* Devil Woman *
+ (of course)
