Whatever happened to Buddy Knox, who sang "Party Doll"?
Pat McGahan, Auburndale, Fla.

Texas native Knox, whose 1957 No. 1 single "Party Doll" became a rockabilly smash, died in 1999 at age 65 of lung cancer. Eventually inducted into the Rockabilly Music Hall of Fame, he was never able to follow up his initial chart-topping success but continued to have modest hits into the 1960s and toured heavily throughout the ’80s.
