Roy Orbison

Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23 1936 – December 6 1988), nicknamed "The Big O," was an influential Grammy Award-winning American singer-songwriter, guitarist and a pioneer of rock and roll whose recording career spanned more than four decades.

Orbison is best known for the songs, "Ooby Dooby," "Only the Lonely," "In Dreams," "Oh, Pretty Woman," "Crying," "Running Scared," "You Got It".

He was known for his smooth tenor voice, which could jump three octaves with little trouble.

He was rarely seen on stage without his trademark black sunglasses.

In 1987, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 1989, he was posthumously inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
