Famous artists such as Barry Gibb, k.d.lang, Robert Plant, Bono, Dwight Yoakam, Raul Malo, Robin Gibb and many others provide revealing aspects of his bittersweet life, his incomparable work and his unique genius.
Orbison's remarkable canon of work is tied to the entire life span of rock 'n' roll, during the second half of the twentieth century. Born in Texas in 1936, he moved to Nashville in the late '50s where he penned Claudette for The Everly Brothers. Then, during the golden years of '60 - '64 he scored nine Top 10 hits with Only The Lonely, Running Scared, Dream Baby, Pretty Paper, Crying, In Dreams, Falling, It's Over and Oh Pretty Woman.
Roy Orbison was the only outstanding American artist to ride out the British Invasion. He toured with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, whilst suffering the personal tragedies of the death of his wife and two sons. In the '70s he was reduced to playing at clubs until his reputation began to soar via covers of his earlier works by Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Don McLean.
Finally, through his renaissance in the '80s with The Travelling Wilburys, his star shone strongly and brightly until his untimely death in 1988.
