How many Buddy Holly records have been sold?

User Avatar
Too Many At least 1.5 million albums between 1991 and 2013 For a person that only released three albums during his short lifetime: The Chirping Crickets in 1957, and Buddy Holly and That'll Be the Day in 1958, he has sold a remarkable number of albums-over 1.5 million from 1991-2013.

Did Buddy Holly ever win a GRAMMY?

User Avatar
No he did not, at least while he was alive. The Grammy Awards started in the later part of 1959 after he passed in the plane crash. He might have won something for his posthumus releases though.

Did buddy holly have any other children not from maria?

User Avatar
well what i say is yes because he can be a cheater sometime :o Buddy and Maria Elena Santiago were married on August 15, 1958. Maria Elena was pregnant when Buddy died on February 3, 1959, but she miscarried shortly thereafter. There is no evidence whatsoever that he fathered any other children.

Wasn't Maria Holly expecting when Buddy Holly Died if so where is the child now and how is Mrs Holly?

Maria Elena Santiago Holly claimed to have miscarried the child two months after Buddy's death. There is speculation from those "in the know" at the time that she misrepresented herself and was not in fact pregnant at all, and was using it to get attention and sympathy from the press. We only have her word on it. She can say anything she pleases, and the only person that could refute her claims perished in a plane crash in 1959. Personally, I think that she has been milking the Buddy Holly name for years. She remarried and raised a family, but went back to using the surname Holly as soon as she could because she realized what a cash cow it was. That speaks volumes about her character and "devotion" to Buddy. She threatens to sue (and has) anyone who even mentions his name unless she gets a cut. She was in Lubbock at the time of the funeral, but elected not to go. There was a little jealousy and rivalry going on between her and Peggy Sue Allison who was married to the Crickets drummer, J.I. Allison. Peggy Sue claims that Buddy was going to divorce Maria for her and Maria was jealous that Peggy Sue was at the funeral with Buddy's family and was packing to go back to New York while Buddy's service was going on!!! That is the real reason she did not attend his funeral.....jealousy and having a hissy fit. If she was that unwell due to pregnancy, why on earth would she immediately get on a plane to fly to New York? Makes no sense, why not hang out in Lubbock with the in-laws until she felt well enough to travel. Perhaps she was not really pregnant after all. Buddy's pals said he never mentioned her being pregnant or wanting a child. This is all pretty well documented. There is alot of conjecture that Maria Elena was not in fact pregnant and that she used this as a means for sympathy and attention. No medical records support her claim. Her reputation has suffered as time has passed.

Boola Boola is one of Yale's football fighting songs. Viper1 Contrary to popular myth, "boola boola" doesn't mean anything, it is just a song written Yale Bowl. The author was 1901 Yale graduate Allan M. Hirsh, who adapted the song from an 1898 song called "La Hoola Boola."

Why does Buddy Holly say boola boola to his girlfriend in the move Buddy Holly story?

User Avatar
"Boola Boola" is the title of Yale University's football fight song. His girlfriend was going off to college, to hang out with sorority-types who love to go to stupid football games, and he figured she'd be singing a lot of cheer songs at games. He was being sarcastic.
