I hope you will forgive me if I have this basic fact wrong.

I have always understood that the royalty ($) issue, Norman vs. Holly, was not about late royalty payments from Coral/brunswick
but rather concerned payments that had already been made to NorVaJac and Norman, but had not as yet been distributed
to Buddy and the Crickets.

The idea that both Norman AND Holly were owed more than the record company statements said they did is extremely likely,
but that does not excuse Norman from holding back cash that he had already received.

I suppose further factual details regarding this issue are, after all this time, lost to history.

I sincerely wish Jerry and Sonny would collaborate on the definitive inside story of the rock and roll business of that era, with an obvious concentration on the Holly/Petty/Crickets relationship.

We are losing authoritative voices from that time at an alarming rate...
