Roy Orbison - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2349 words)
By the mid-1960s Orbison was internationally recognized for his ballads of lost love, rhythmically advanced melodies, four-octave vocal range, characteristic dark sunglasses, and sometimes distinctive usage of falsetto, typified in songs such as "Only The Lonely", "In Dreams", "Oh, Pretty Woman", "Crying" and "Running Scared".
Orbison had triple heart bypass surgery on January 18, 1978 and enjoyed smoking most of his life.
According to the Rockabilly Hall of Fame [1], at a press conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Sam Orbison said that his brother Roy Orbison was always "saddened by the sordid treatment of Elvis Presley in the aftermath of his death in 1977."
