"Orbison's voice was unearthly. He had the ability, like all great rock and rollers, to sound like he'd dropped in from another planet and yet get the stuff that was right to the heart of what you were livin' in today, and that was how he opened up your vision. I carry his records with me when I go on tour today, and I'll always remember what he means to me and what he meant to me when I was young and afraid to love. In 1975, when I went into the studio to record 'Born To Run', I wanted to make a record with words like Bob Dylan, that sounded like Phil Spector's production, but most of all I wanted to sing like Roy Orbison. Now, everybody knows that nobody sings like Roy Orbison." – Bruce Springsteen Fred Neil (March 16, 1936 - July 7, 2001) was an important white blues and folk singer and songwriter in the 1960s and early 1970s. ...
