Read the Blanas book. When Norman wasn't getting money from the record company or publishers, neither were his acts. There was just a letter on ebay from spring 1959 where American Bandstand paid for their fall 1958 appearance months later, and the money sent straight from Petty to the Crickets. So it wasn't just record companies, but slow payment from numerous places. Buddy was spending money before he had it like a typical 20 year old. The major labels were made up of mafia and fast talking swindlers back then and likely some now as well.
