Rock'n'roll pioneer Roy Orbison is best known for songs such as "Oh, Pretty Woman", "Only The Lonely", "Running Scared" and "Crying". He signed with Sun Records, home of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis at the age of 20. His career at Sun wasn't highly successful, but he did make several landmark rockabilly recordings including "Ooby Dooby", "Rockhouse","Go Go Go" and "You're My Baby". After moving to Monument Records, he made the breakthrough with a number of ballads which rose to the top of the American and British charts. In the early 1960s he toured with the biggest names in pop and rock music: the Beatles in 63, the Beach Boys in 64, and in 65 with the Rolling Stones. His 1964 song "Oh, Pretty Woman" is probably his most widely recognised song, and it went on to sell over seven million copies. Orbison continued to tour in the 70s, although his new recordings were less successful. In 1988 he teamed up with Jeff Lynne, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty to form The Traveling Wilburys.

"Although he shared the same rockabilly roots as Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison went on to pioneer an entirely different brand of country/pop-based rock & roll in the early '60s. What he lacked in charisma and photogenic looks, Orbison made up for in spades with his quavering operatic voice and melodramatic narratives of unrequited love and yearning. In the process, he established rock & roll archetypes of the underdog and the hopelessly romantic loser. These were not only amplified by peers such as Del Shannon and Gene Pitney, but also influenced future generations of roots rockers such as Bruce Springsteen and Chris Isaak, as well as modern country stars the Mavericks." - Richie Unterberger,

"Tom Petty called him 'probably the greatest singer in the world.' Another of his fellow Traveling Wilburys, Bob Dylan, said he had 'the voice of a professional criminal.' ...Dion, who toured with Orbison, says that he actually sang very softly: 'I'd be two feet away, and when he hit those high notes, it was quiet and heartfelt. But the emotion would go through you like a power drill." - Rolling Stone
