    Ive been listening to him lately.

    Interesting guitar style and song arrangements.

    My mom used to listen to Roy Orbison all the time. Usually in the late afternoons/early evenings while making dinner. As a kid, I hated it with a passion. Now, as a 30 year old, I find myself humming the songs in my head and searching for "oldies" radio stations while driving. Haven't gotten around to actually buying/downloading any Orbison yet, but now that I'm thinking about it I'll probably have to.

    THAT's a good show. I had to go buy it on CD and DVD. Jackson Browne, T. Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, Springsteen, k.d. lange, Bonnie Raitt, just to name a few.

    You can occassionally catch it on PBS, when they are begging for money.

    Take a look/listen to "The Traveling Willburys." He teamed up with George Harrison, Tom Petty, and another guy to make some great music. They cut only 2 albums before Orbison died.

    I have listened to them. But years ago. Need to review it.

    Traveling Wilburys was George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, and Jeff Lynne with, at least on the first album, Jim Keltner on drums. One of the very few "supergoups" actually deserving of the name.

    was more talented than Elvis!! I liked to have gotten slapped once when admitting that, but I think he had much more range as well as depth to his songs.

    The man really could sing, and I have always loved his music.

    How many goofy looking guys with thick black glasses could make a woman turn back!!

    Ahhh, no. He's not more talented than The King. The King sang everything and made them sound good. Even Frank Sinatra approved of Elvis singing My Way.

    Roy was a balladeer at best.

    Public TV runs "Black and White Night" as a fundraiser, fronm time to time, if you want to pay A LOT for the DVD.

    I always appreciated his voice, his choice of songs, and his talent.

    I used to watch him on local tv every Saturday afternoon back in the mid '50s. He was from Wink, Texas and did his weekly show on one of the stations at Midland or Odessa. He had a unique style and I always like his music.

    I had the pleasure of working with him 2 times back in the 80's when I lived in Austin. A true Legend!

    I had to grow up in order to appreciate his music. Wish he was still here.
