One of the true legends of contemporary music, one of the most unique voices you will ever hear. On top of it all he was pure class and a gentleman. I don't think I've ever read a bad thing about Roy Orbison.

What a voice, no effort is needed from Roy, he just opens his mouth and what comes out is timeless...

In Dreams live 1988

I was lucky growing up with Roy's music always in the background. Most musical experts agree he had a four-octave range. That's in the opera range. Incredible vocal talent.

A true legend. I swear he had a tear in his voice. He always sounded like he was seconds away from crying! I've always loved this song.
