Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 December 6, 1988) was an American singer-songwriter and musician, well known for his distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads. Orbison grew up in Texas and began singing in a rockabilly / country & western band in high school until he was signed by Sun Records in Memphis. His greatest success was with Monument Records in the early 1960s where 22 of his songs placed on the Top Forty, including “Only the Lonely”, “Crying”, “In Dreams”, and “Oh, Pretty Woman”. His career stagnated through the 1970s, but several covers of his songs and the use of one in a film by David Lynch revived his career in the 1980s. He joined the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne and released an album in 1988. He died of a heart attack at the age of 52, at the zenith of his resurgence.

Orbison was a natural baritone, but since 1961 writers have speculated that he had a three or four-octave range.[1] The combination of Orbison’s powerful, impassioned voice, and the complex musical arrangements in his songs led many in rock and roll to refer to his music as operatic, calling him the “Caruso of Rock”.[2][note 1] Performers as disparate as Elvis Presley and Bono stated his voice was, respectively, the greatest and most distinctive they had ever heard.[3] While most men in rock and roll in the 1950s and 1960s portrayed a defiant masculinity, many of Orbison’s songs instead conveyed a quiet, desperate vulnerability. He experienced tragedies in his life including the death of his first wife and his children on separate occasions. He was known for performing while standing still and solitary, wearing black clothes and dark sunglasses which lent an air of mystery to his persona.

Orbison was initiated into the second class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 by longtime admirer Bruce Springsteen. The same year he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Rolling Stone listed Orbison as #37 in their list of The Greatest Artists of All Time. In 2002, Billboard magazine listed Orbison at #74 in the Top 600 recording artists.[4] Rolling Stone rated Orbison at #13 in their list of The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time in 2008.[5]
Early life
Roy Orbison was born in Vernon, Texas, the middle son of Orbie Lee, an oil well driller and car mechanic, and Nadine Shults, a nurse. Both were unemployed during the Great Depression, so the family lived in Fort Worth for several years to find work, until a polio scare made them return to Vernon. To find work again, the family moved to West Texas to the town of Wink. Orbison would later describe the major components of life in Wink as “Football, oil fields, oil, grease and sand”,[6] and in later years expressed relief that he was able to leave the desolate town.[note 2] All the Orbison children were afflicted with poor eyesight; Roy was nearly blind and used thick corrective lenses from an early age. A bout with jaundice as a child gave him a sallow complexion, and his ears protruded prominently. Orbison was not particularly confident in his appearance; he began dyeing his nearly white hair black when he was young.[7] He was quiet and self-effacing, remarkably polite and compliant—an homage, biographer Adam Clayson wrote, to his Southern upbringing.[8] However, Orbison was readily available to sing, and often became the focus of attention when he did. He remembered that he considered his voice memorable if not great.[6]etc

    Tener verdadero …
    Tener verdadero éxito en la vida es: reír mucho y muchas veces; ganar el respeto de personas inteligentes; gozar del cariño de niños; ganar el reconocimiento de personas cualificadas y saber soportar la traición de falsos amigos; apreciar la belleza; buscar lo mejor en los demás; dejar el mundo un poquito mejor de como lo encontraste – con un hijo sano, un jardín bonito o una persona más feliz; saber que al menos alguien ha vivido mejor gracias a ti.
