The Roy Orbison Story

Only the Lonely... .Running Scared... ... Sweet Dream Baby... ... Candy Man... ... ... Blue bayou... ...In Dreams... ... .Anything You Want... ... ..Crying... ... ..Workin for the Man... ... .Penny Arcade... ... Pretty Woman... ... ...

The greatest voice in contemporary music. The Big O stood head & shoulders above the rest, his vocals were peerless, his range extraordinary. His songs unique, impassioned & personal. Orbison, the man, was enigmatic, driven, shy, funny, quietly charismatic.

From his initial success in the 1960’s to the resurgence of his career in his final years, Roy Orbison’s voice remained remarkable, communicating an emotional intensity not experienced in popular music before or since. His songs conveyed vulnerability, love, loss & fun.
Orbison’s life was littered with personal tragedy, & career highs & lows. His wonderful regaining of recognition in the late 80’s was a fitting final chapter to his creative genius.

Mark Shelley (Willie & Roy The Legends) –brings to life the voice & character of Roy & portrays his story in a moving, engaging, & at times humorous manner.
