"YOU'RE MY BABY!" by Roy Orbison At Sun Studio, Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash made a deal where they each had to do the other guy's worst song. Orbison's song "You Tell Me" was done by Cash. Johnny's song was a kind of comedy poem called "Little Wooly Booger." Roy sped it up, helped Johnny with the lyrics and it because "YOU'RE MY BABY"! A Rockabilly classic, today it's most famous from the Johnny Cash movie "Walk The Line" where the Roy Orbison character does the song.

Our History FAME Publishing was founded in 1959 by Rick Hall, Billy Sherrill and Tom Stafford. FAME writers Billy Sherrill, Dan Penn and Rick Hall have cuts on Roy Orbison, Brenda Lee and Tommy Roe. Rick Hall took over as sole owner of FAME. Late 1961 Rick Hall produced Muscle Shoals’ first hit record on Arthur Alexander. The song, “You Better Move On”, was later covered by the Rolling Stones. FAME’s first house rhythm section included Norbert Putnam, David Briggs, Peanut Montgomery and Jerry Carrigan. FAME moves its studios and offices to the current location on Avalon Avenue in Muscle Shoals. Jimmy Hughes has a huge hit with “Steal Away” on FAME Records, the first record done at the new location. Hughes went on to have seven hit records most of which were for FAME Records. The Tams record their huge hit “What Kind Of Fool Do You Think I Am”. Buddy Killen brings Joe Tex to FAME to record the gold record “Hold On To What You’ve Got”. Rick Hall produces Etta James’ Tell Mama album. ...

I noticed last night on two national newscast that One Direction may be the biggest 'band' since The Beatles?! These five guys, like so many current artists, simply sing. The Beatles wrote all of their own music AND played the instruments, and sang them. THAT'S a 'BAND', not these young, fortunate groups & single artists that simply sing. Go all the way back to Bill Haley & The Comets, Elvis Presley, The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, etc. They were the pioneers--& they did it all.

"I recently came across an old cassette tape recorded in my living room in Malibu, sometime around 1976, of Jackson [Browne] teaching me to sing [Warren] Zevon's 'Poor Poor Pitiful Me', plugging a song for his buddy whose writing he so admired. Listening to the tape, I wonder why Jackson didn't record it himself, because he sang it better than I did. Later on in the tape John David [Souther] teaches me Roy Orbison's 'Blue Bayou' which also made it onto the Simple Dreams album. That was a profitable evening" - Linda Ronstadt

Well, all checked-in and really excited for my second Heaven Rocks weekend of the year...this event was a sell out in February, hence I have repeated the event again, now in November. Heaven Rocks is Heaven's gig, here on Earth and is being held at the Best Western Buckingham Hotel. The event has sold out again and I am so looking forward sharing the weekend with 140 of my friends and supporters. Following lunch at the hotel, my guests can relax and enjoy continuous live entertainment provided by my fellow artists with tributes to the Memories of Marley, Karen Carpenter, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Whitney Houston, Freddie Mercury, Marc Bolan, Buddy Holly, Rat Pack, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson and, of course, Elvis Presley. I am sure that the after show party tomorrow tonight will be one to remember, so, if you’re coming along, get ready to party til the early hours... this is going to be an amazing 24 hours!! See you there :-)
I was given the number 4. So I will try to think of 4 things people may not know about me. If you want a number, like this post. 1. I'm a Maladaptive Perfectionist. I have unattainable ideals which, knowing they're unattainable, causes me depression and anxiety. 2. I absolutely LOVE Roy Orbison. The most relaxing thing ever is a candlelit bubble bath with some Roy playing. 3. Number 1 on my Bucket List is hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, but for all the travel I do its the number 1 trip I keep putting off. 4. I was born Erin Lobegeier. When I was 18 I changed it to Erin Elizabeth Cridge. Elizabeth is my Grandmothers name and Cridge is Mum's maiden name.
I've been thinking about this for a long time but here it is. 5 greatest male vocalists of all time. 5.) David Ruffin 4.) Marvin Gaye. 3.) Robert plant. 2.) A tie. John Lennon and Smokey Robinson 1.) Roy Orbison.
Pain subsided for a little while...at least I won't look like a human fly, Roy Orbison, Stevie wonder or David blunkett tomorrow! I work with some funny people lol :-) xx

Anyway, also listened to Lady Gaga, Roy Orbison, Carly Simon, Waylon Jennings, and Glee's tracks of Demi Lovato and Adam Lambert tunes.

Gothic music encompasses a wide range of styles and sounds. It can range from Gregorian chant and massive pipe organ sounds to modern guitar-based rock. It may include classical orchestrations, baroque strings, and mid-eastern music. It is often “ambient” (or hollow-sounding), especially in the vocals (“ethereal”). The most dance-able styles tend to be keyboard and synthesizer-based, but most early gothic music was guitar-based and was originally called Death Rock.     The line between Gothic and Industrial music is not always well-defined, although Industrial tends to be  more aggressive, with less themes of personal pain and more about social/political issues. Both styles depend on synthesized and digital sounds. The following represents a list of bands that are likely to come up in conversations with Goths: Pre-Goths and Proto-Goths (just for fun): Johnny Cash (the original man in black); Roy Orbison (dressed in black, sunglasses at nite, and sad ballads like “Only the Lonely,” “Runn ...

June 28th, 2013   Ask any successful band or performer how they got their start or what influenced a change in their musical direction and they're sure to credit some other band or artist. The influence musicians have on one another is openly recognized and celebrated for the innovations it inspires. No musician creates in a vacuum. Be it consciously or not, we are all part of a network of influences. A musical chain, if you will. A family tree.   Take The Beatles, for instance. They were strongly influenced by Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison who, respectively, were influenced by Elvis Presley, The Clovers, Hank Williams, and Hank Ballard. Black Sabbath name Cream as an influence who give a nod to The Yardbirds who cite the music of John Lee Hooker who names Son House who acknowledges Furry Lewis, driving Sabbath's musical roots some five levels deep. Even the great Chuck Berry, who seemingly invented a whole new approach to playing the guitar, readily cites T-Bone Walker as his prime inspirat ...

Another booking just secured for a 60th Birthday party at Stratford upon Avon in September this year. This was a venue we'd played at about 2 months ago. The club steward recommended us to the client who was struggling to find suitable entertainment. She was really lucky as this date in September was the one of the few Saturday dates we have left this year! What is really interesting about this booking is that they really do want a 60's night - so its over to mainly Eric this time for some Elvis, Buddy Holly, Del Shannon, Billy Fury, Roy Orbison, Drifters, and Cliff Richard!! Kelly ones include dolly Parton, Abba, Mary Wells, The Ronettes.
Share if you agree. I am unabashedly proud American. I love my country. I love our culture. I love the language I speak. I love baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie. I think Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe, Carl Sandburg, Herman Melville were all amazing writers. I hear the tales about John Henry, Wild Bill Hickok and Paul Bunyan and smile. I love the sunsets over central Illinois cornfields, the rolling western Pennsylvania hills, the salty sea air of eastern Florida, the flat openness of western Iowa, the winding roads on Los Angeles, the constant sound of Manhattan. I love Roy Orbison, Bing Crosby, Bob Dylan and Joan Jett. I am American. I was born here. I live here. I may not always live here, but I will always be here. -- Anthony Trendl Author

So is Nashville Skyline the album where Bob Dylan tries to be Roy Orbison or was Roy Orbison always being Nashville Skyline Bob Dylan?
Here's an article I wrote & published in the April 2003 'Circuit Rider'... 10 years, and things have only Worsened!! [Note: I have left it unedited as to dates and 'other' changes...] " Last September, my wife and I had a chance to see Elvis & the Superstars in a small theatre in downtown Branson, and enjoyed it so much that we took my mother and son there over Christmas. The first half of the show consisted of a very good impersonation of Elvis doing songs from different times of his career, while the second half was the same guy doing such artists as Roy Orbison, Tom Jones, and Liberace. One song put him as Neil Diamond and one of his lady assistants as Barbra Streisand together on stage doing their big duo hit ‘You Don’t Bring Me Flowers.’ They did it very well, but I really wanted to tell them that in reality, that scene had probably never happened! You see, I have a record (you remember records… about 12’’ across made out of very flat vinyl with a small hole in the center?) of Neil Diamon ...

You have all blessed my life immeasurably.
Jeff Lynne is def one of the best musicians in the last 4 decades he did so much with all the original GREATS such as Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Joe Walsh, Bob Dylan ect. The sad part is 80% of the people who read this will have no clue who I'm talking about.

Woolwich once had four cinemas. Today, one, the former Granada cinema (which once hosted Buddy Holly in 1958,[7] and later Roy Orbison and The Beatles in 1963[8]), is a bingo hall; another, the former ABC (previously Regal) is a nightclub, while the former Odeon, later Coronet, is now a Pentecostal church. The Century cinema, which faced Beresford Square, was demolished for redevelopment in the late 1960s. Who went to the cinema in Woolwich and what did you see? [Gina G]
Book review: John Kruth’s Roy Orbison biography, ‘Rhapsody in Black’ By Jen Chaney,June 19, 2013 • "Rhapsody in Black: The Life and Music of Roy Orbison" by John… (Backbeat/Backbeat ) Nearly 25 years have passed since Roy Orbisonlast prowled the Earth in one of his signature jet-black ensembles, with those trademark sunglasses perched on the bridge of his nose. The rock pioneer responsible for the lascivious growl of “Oh, Pretty Woman,” the swoony high notes of “Crying” and a personal style best described as geek-noir chic died of a heart attack in 1988, which means he’s now been gone for almost as much time as he spent recording albums. Given his catalogue of classics and the long list of significant artists he influenced — from Bono to Bruce Springsteen to Bob Dylan — he’s hardly been forgotten. But in a music landscape where trends change as fast as our Spotify playlists can shuffle, reminders of the lasting timelessness of his work are welcome. The latest reminder comes in th ...

"Breaking up Is Hard to Do" from Neil Sedaka and Little Eva released the single "The Loco-Motion". 1964: The British Invasion gets a taste of its own medicine when Roy Orbison becomes the first American to hit in the UK in 47 weeks, scoring with his single "It's Over," his second UK No.1. 1966: Neil Diamond makes his television debut, singing his hit "Solitary Man" on today's broadcast of ABC's American Bandstand. 1966: It was a heck of a show as The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Love, Captain Beefheart, The Lovin Spoonful ...

We appreciated the girls's tips fom Wales. We had a few thoughts of our own after almost 100 miles 1. Ensure all bodily functions have been completed before setting off. 2. If you are unsure about whether white or black pudding are good for you at breakfast, eat both 3. 2-3 Guinness and a magners or two are more effective than paracetamol or ibuprofen 4. 10 Guinness at night require a lot of paracetamol the next day 5. Bacon butties are a far better source of electrolytes than cliff bars. And taste better with brown sauce 6. Diaralyte does not dissolve well in Magners anyway 7. Always travel with a full loo roll. In case of fail on rule 1 8. Stretching involves bending over. We don't bend over. We do like massage though. 9. Singing whilst walking is def a good idea. Mason is esp good with Roy Orbison, at least in his own mind 10. 22 year old Irish townie girls have no interst in 40-something year old men. I know this has nothing to do with walking but it is something else we learned and wanted to share

There are many things that make me sad about fatherhood. Autism isn’t one of them. What do you want me to do, cry? Not likely unless, of course, you’re talking about the lack of record stores in the world today. That just gets me all teary-eyed. For many audiophiles like myself, the diminishing population of brick and mortar record stores robs me of the ability to share with my son the joy of spending hours thumbing through bins of records (or cds depending on your age or preference). You start off by convincing yourself that you’ll just browse (. . . AC/DC, Aerosmith, Alice in Chains. . .), but halfway through you realize that you’re whipped into a frenzy (. . . Operation Ivy, Oasis, Roy Orbison. . .). Somewhere between Stone Temple Pilots and White Zombie, you realize that the trance you’ve slipped into is more akin to a spiritual journey than any acid fueled romp at the Pink Floyd laser light show that your dad always talks about. This, unlike acid, is something you can share with your childr ...

Happy 58th Birthday to Glenn Danzig. Having started in music in the mid-1970s, Danzig's musical career has encompassed a number of genres, including punk rock, heavy metal, industrial, blues and classical music. He has written songs for other musicians, most notably Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison. His key bands as frontman/songwriter include THE MISFITS, DANZIG and SAMHAIN.
