ROY sings ORBISON, one of the best videos from his 'live' performances. This mega star has so much talent in him, he doesn't need to scream, shout or even move when he sings. His voice alone, with his strong and magnetic personality, silenced the audience as he sings his hits.
Also watch the antics of his bassist and lead guitarist in brown, when they perform their simple gymnastics behind him. This selection includes his version of Mean Woman Blues, different from the original Elvis piece. And his mouth-organ (harmonica) play is splendidly forceful. Don't miss his grand curtain closer.
Like his humble introduction, his unobtrusive short chats and his final good-bye, Orbison says them without fuss and fanfare. He's just there to sing.
Lyrics and chords of Roy Orbison's lost song found.
The Lost Song
His sons found a 'lost' song he recorded. With new sound recording technology they backed his voice and produced it, a last final tribute to his legacy.
The humility this man displays on stage tells his person. Mr Orbison passed away at an early age, 52. He had a heart attack.
