MUSIC HISTORY 101 JANUARY 5, 1923 - Born on this day as Samuel Cornelius Phillips in Florence, Alabama: Sun Studios owner/producer SAM PHILLIPS (d. July 30, 2003) Although he first made his mark with electric blues by black artists, he will be most remembered for his "discovery" of Elvis Presley and other rockabilly stars. Phillip's Memphis, Tennessee based Sun records was first label of Presley, but Sun also launched many other careers including Howlin' Wolf, Carl Perkins, Ike Turner, Rufus Thomas, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, and Johnny Cash. Phillips and Elvis Presley opened a new form of music. He said of Presley: "Elvis cut a ballad, which was just excellent. I could tell you, both Elvis and Roy Orbison could tear a ballad to pieces. But I said to myself, 'You can't do that, Sam.' If I had released a ballad I don't think you would have heard of Elvis Presley." Although much has been written about Phillips' goals, he can be seen stating the following: "Everyone knew that I was just a strug ...

Deduct the Alamo! In 1836, Mexican General Santa Anna and 1,500 troops laid seige against 182 Texans garrisoned at the Alamo, a Spanish mission designed to resist attack from native tribes. Thirteen days later, the Mexicans stormed the walls and killed every last man inside, including Commander William Travis and frontiersmen Davey Crockett and Jim Bowie. Santa Anna's cruelty inspired Texans to join their army to seek revenge, crying "Remember the Alamo!" on their way to crushing the Mexicans at the Battle of San Jacinto. Remembering the Alamo has become a central part of Texas history. So, which Texas musician just offered a tax-planning lesson by donating his collection of Alamo artifacts to the Texas Land Office? Was it rock 'n' roll pioneer Roy Orbison, hailing from lonely Vernon near the Oklahoma border? Perhaps it was country legend Willie Nelson, born an hour south of Fort Worth? Wait, wait . . . was it Tejano accordionist Leonardo "Flaco" Jiménez from San Antonio? No, no, and no. The answer, of c ...

Each Monday for the next couple weeks, I'm going to list albums that were hugely influential for me growing up, both musically and artistically, but also in my life in general. I'll start with the ones that influenced me when I was youngest, and work upwards from there. So here are some from when I was between 0 and 7 years old: Raffi - Baby Beluga Sesame Street - "The Best of Sesame Street" Nirvana - "Nevermind" Roy Orbison - "Mystery Girl" Les Miserables - "The London Recordings" Jimi Hendrix - "Band of Gypsys" Johnny Cash - "At Folsom Prison" Dinah Washington - "Unforgettable" Sade - "Love Deluxe" Whitney Houston - "Whitney Houston" Anyone heard any of these? What influenced you as a toddler?

Next it's Van Halen doing Roy Orbison's Oh Pretty Woman & I'll tell u who that song is about
George : "I just loved playing with the Traveling Wilburys. It was such fun doing that. Oddly enough, with a band that included, besides myself, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and jim Keltner on drums, I felt less pressure than I had on many smaller projects, because none of us had to worry about the solo performance thing 50 much. There was 50 much input from everybody, and we were all relieved to be in a band of equals where no one had to worry about doing all the lead vocals or all the writing. I think a lot of people who liked the first album didn't get the second one, Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3. Unfortunately, it came out just when the gulfwar was starting and the economy was going down. I remember we were going down to choose outfits for our first video and we heard that they'd just bombed Baghdad. But a song like 'New Blue Moon' [from Vol. 3] has that slap-back echo and the feel of all those great Fifties records I loved. It stands up to modem technology, yet has the brightness and fe ...
This Day In Music: October 8th 1964, Roy Orbison was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Oh Pretty Woman', his third UK No.1. The title was inspired by Orbison's wife Claudette interrupting a conversation to announce she was going out; when Orbison asked if she was okay for cash, his co-writer Bill Dees interjected "A Pretty Woman never needs any money." 1964, Working at Abbey Road studios in London, The Beatles recorded their next single ‘She's a Woman’ in seven takes plus overdubs, recording the song from start to finish in five hours. 1965, During a UK The Rolling Stones appeared at The ABC, Stockton on Tees. Also on the bill, Spencer Davis Group, Unit Four + 2, The Checkmates, The End, and Charles Dickens and The Habits. 1965, The Florescents supported by The Castiles, which featured a young singer called Bruce Springsteen appeared at the I.B.

This week's " YOUR OPINION " . Of all the solo male singers in our generation , who ( 6 ) had the BEST voices !!! Please no Barry Gibb or Tiny Tim or even Dylan ! Don't forget Charlie Rich ( GREAT ) . Elvis .Roy Orbison .Gene Pitney .! Remember who you listened to as a kid and thought they had great voices ( Al Martino)! Hate to say it but all the " goodie two shoes " loved Andy Williams ! I thought Dean Martin was the best . Always had a drink in his hand .! Just sayin ' .THE BEST VOICES ONLY !

"I Drove All Night" is a song written and composed by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly and made famous by Cyndi Lauper. The song was originally intended for Roy Orbison, who recorded it in 1987, but his rendition was not released until
Hat's off to Jeff Lynne in Hyde Park - the addition of the BBC orchestra means that he has got it nailed. Is he the closest Britain got to our own Brian Wilson? Mind you still time to Blow it - any hint of Xanadu and its time for the off button. How could the man who penned 10538 Overture come up with Xanadu! Good to hear some Wilbury's in tribute to Roy Orbison and George Harrison

View an all star tribute to Elvis Presley. 'We Remember The King', Johnny Cash singing lead vocal and backed by Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. (Not a bad group hey!! From the 1986 reunion 'Class Of '55'. The 'Class Of '55' was a CD release in 1986, however it was also filmed by *** Clark and broadcast on US TV in 1989, the album billed as a 'Rock 'N' Roll Homecoming' also remembered Elvis in other songs, but stands in its own right as a classic album full of solid performances. (Here we have added rare video of Elvis when he was touring with Perkins, Cash, and Buddy Holly.)
If you missed Miley's performance of "It's Over" by Roy Orbison on the Chelsea Lately finale here it is:

Sing Roy Orbison to me I'll love you forever 😍💕
Last night was an embarrassment of musical riches on TV. Stumbled on to one of those PBS shows, but very different from any of the others. This one had no live performances, just clips from long ago. Things I had never seen. Where did they get them?? Gene Vincent, Buddy Holly, Bo Diddley. Two songs from the Platters. How wonderful that was, to see all the real Platters. The memories of the Platters and others of their ilk have been so diminished by all the phony groups pretending to be them - to see the REAL Platters performing so elegantly, with Tony Williams' voice soaring over everything - yes, now I remember why they were great. That is needed once in awhile. Lloyd Price doing Personality. Don't know where it was from - was lip synced for sure, but there was a band and all the feel of a live performance. Lloyd Price, YUM! Also a clip of Roy Orbison I'd never seen before - Pretty Woman with a bunch of ladies, and then he did Crying. Still amazes me he could sing like that and not open his ...

Today Is Music History July 25th: On this Day 1960, Roy Orbison reached No.2 on the US singles chart with ‘Only the Lonely,’ his first hit. The song was turned down by The Everly Brothers and Elvis Presley, so Orbison decided to record the song himself. More on Roy Orbison 1962, The Beatles played at the Cavern Club in Liverpool at lunchtime; at night they performed again at the Cavern Club, and then they appeared at the Cabaret Club, Liverpool. The Cabaret Club booking was Brian Epstein's attempt to get The Beatles into the cabaret circuit, but it is a miserable failure with no response from the audience. 1963, Cilla Black made a recording test for EMI Records after George Martin had spotted her while at a Gerry And The Pacemakers gig in Liverpool. 1964, The Beatles third album 'A Hard Day's Night' started a twenty-one week run at the top of the UK charts. This was the first Beatles album to be recorded entirely on four-track tape, allowing for good stereo mixes. 1965, Dressed in Carnaby Street threa ...

Mitch Webb, did a great job and, played an awesome cover of Elvis Costello's 'What's So Funny about Peace, Love and Understanding'. Mr. Claude, veteran of the local and regional music scene, played some great lead and slide guitar. Claude like wise sang a great rendition of Roy Orbison's "Crying [over you]".
