ROY ORBISON

Perhaps my favorite song of all time. No one could write a song like Roy Orbison. Sheer genius. Eighteen different chords in a 3-minute song. And that voice. Like a fine vintage wine. There is no comparison, never was, never will be. No one has ever come close to singing like he did.
He left the world just as he sings it in "Ride Away"...
