ROY ORBISON CDs, DVDs available from


Roy Orbison's death in December, 1988 was doubly sad, with his career on an upturn, with a hit with The Travelling Wilburys, and new recordings in the pipeline. Roy's career in Britain yielded three number one records - 'Only The Lonely', 'It's Over', and 'Oh, Pretty Woman'. Other soaring Orbison anthems included 'In Dreams' and 'Running Scared'. However, he had a life riddled with tragedy, losing a wife and two children.

When Roy toured with The Beatles in the early '60s, if he respected their talent, then legend has it they respected his even more. Roy Orbison's voice, like Harry Nilsson's and John Lennon's, had a haunting quality, which could move the hardest heart.
