The Big O – An American Legend

Roy Orbison, one of America’s greatest songwriters and crooners, often gets ignored in the scheme of things. Everyone remembers Elvis, Johnny Cash, and countless others. I’ve noticed Roy doesn’t get his due, and it’s about time he does. Slaying the charts for over 40 years with songs like Ooby Dooby, Pretty Woman, You Got It, Crying, In Dreams, and so many more; it begs for tribute. The video below is from his famous live show called Roy Orbison and Friends. His friends backing him include Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, and others. The whole concert footage is incredible, and I suggest checking it out. Periodically it’s on public access TV, so watch out for it.
