This is a series of small and large errors that I have found in connection with Buddy Holly

 on the Internet and other sources, and which has attracted a large number of followers 

on my so-called "old" website. You have fun, I have fun, let's just keep it up, because 

we need a lot of smiles in this world we live in.

THIS is the link to my "old" website to have a long look at my collection of errors.

Errors  A  Go - Go

At first glance one of many reports about the tragic plane crash of the 3 Stars on February 3, 1959. 

This newspaper edition was published as an evening edition on the day of his death.

Perhaps the hurry to place the article in the evening edition is one of the reasons 

why mistakes are more frequent. How many mistakes do you find?


John Mueller instead of Buddy Holly on Wallpaperplay

And now to an absolute favourite topic of mine in this column, it is once again or still about JOHN MUELLER. Many people write articles about Buddy Holly on the Internet. Unfortunately some of them have probably forgotten what Buddy Holly looked like. 


The main thing is to do business with Buddy Holly, e.g. music albums, DVD's or other sound carriers. The picture of John Müller instead of Buddy Holly appears at every opportunity again and again.
Here are a few new finds from the last months.

It's not easy to find the right pic!

From a DVD I bought some time ago.

I guess that's enough for the moment.

But if you now think that the mistake always happens with the photo of John Mueller, then you are wrong. 

The following photo of a music album I found at amazon Japan.

As it's boring to see John Mueller over and over again instead of our mutual Buddy,

let's try another guy, why not NIKI SULLIVAN !


(instead of "That'll be the day")

They wanted to make a very special ad that would later have collector's value . . .


 And  here  I  present :  

M A R I N A   H O L Y

 I met her personally in Germany shortly after her 'canonization'. 

She did not mention this with a word!


Buddy was a real all-rounder. Singer, composer, lyricist, producer, musician etc.

But that he wrote Greek music, I read here for the first time !


And finally, something with the title "Better twice than never". 

Everything's o.k.?

No, they liked Sonny West more than all other artists, so they put him twice on the cover.

My good friend Roddy from Australia discovered 

this mistake on closer inspection: 

Buddy talks about his own label and

 mentions the name TAUPE (See page 2), 

but the correct name is PRISM.

Thanks to Roddy !

"Funny  things"  are  happening  on  YouTube :

What we see here is NOT an isolated case.

I have seen this several times and I cannot believe it. 

What is happening with the new "copyright campaign"? 

Double entries all the time?

NOT FADE AWAY is only an example.

Many other songs Buddy composed are also affected.

BUDDY  appears  twice ! !

YouTube has a really great software in use:

This software finds the music titles in videos.

Even exactly from when to when, wow !
And it knows  exactly what the title is called !
And it's  never  wrong !

This Is A Long Buddy Holly Playlist

Have a look at all the songs we know so well !

YouTube put a long list of songs under this upload of Buddy Holly songs and, 

oh wonder, also found this song by Bobby Angelo and the Tuxedos, "BABY SITTIN'"

although it was not at all among the titles on the playlist

A one-off error in the human-programmed software ???


I  am  a  victim  of  YouTube's  "Copyright - Crusade", as well !

I uploaded a video from German television from 2011 in which I was the main actor.

 I  presented  some  exhibits  from  my  Buddy  Holly  collection. 

The director played 10 seconds of the song 

"It Doesn't Matter Anymore" while I showed the 45 vinyl single.

( 4:51 - 5:01 )

And that was the sobering result:

"BABY SITTIN' " is widespread. 

This song is recognised by the software instead of the correct song.

The software is not suitable, I realise !

YouTube's quality management should do its job!

For me, this false report was not without consequences:

My video was blocked in several countries because of an 

alleged copyright infringement by the song "BABY SITTIN' " !

Thank you, YouTube!
