Did anybody see the documentary about him last night, followed by the black and white concert?

So much tragedy in one life and doesn't his oldest remaining son, Wesley look like him?

Roy is the rocking chair

Roy was one of the real giants of rock 'n roll. I have been a fan since the 60s.

But I was asking if you had seen the documentary.

yes, a few months ago it was a repeat and is quite often shown on various tv channels. Roy's life story in some ways reflects his songs.

I have several recordings of the Roy Orbison programmes, I have loved his voice and songs since I was a young teenager. There was so much tragedy in his life.
