Singer-songwriter Roy Orbison was one of the most influential artists in rock music, eventually earning an estimated net worth of approximately $15 million dollars. And earned that net worth he most certainly did, bringing an unprecedented level of emotional sophistication to rock music. His career peak in the early 1960s produced still-popular hits like "Only the Lonely", "Crying", "In Dreams", and "Oh, Pretty Woman." His music was characterized by lush orchestral instrumentation and arrangements, which were previously alien to the "guitar, bass, and drums" world of rock and roll and pop music. His image during this time, of a highly emotional and sensitive storyteller, who was seen as a "recluse" or a "man of mystery," didn't really reflect his off-stage personality. But it did resonate with music fans of the 50s and 60s, leading Orbison to become one of the biggest stars of the period. He eventually appeared with rising stars The Beatles, and according to legend upstaged the famously raucous band even though he simply stood on the stage, playing his songs. Unfortunately for Orbison, the type of music The Beatles represented would eventually cause his career to decline before a resurgence in popularity that took place in the late 1980s. Sadly, Orbison died of a heart attack in 1988, before he was able to enjoy his newfound popularity for very long.
Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 - December 6, 1988) was an American singer-songwriter, best known for his distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads. Orbison grew up in Texas and began singing in a rockabilly/country and western band in high school until he was signed by Sun Records in Memphis. His greatest success came with Monument Records between 1960 and 1964, when 22 of his songs placed on the Billboard Top Forty, including "Only the Lonely", "Crying", and "Oh, Pretty Woman". His career stagnated through the 1970s, but several covers of his songs and the use of "In Dreams" in David Lynch's Blue Velvet revived his career in the 1980s. In 1988, he joined the supergroup Traveling Wilburys with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne and also released a new solo album. He died of a heart attack in December that year, at the zenith of his resurgence. His life was marred by tragedy, including the death of his first wife and his two eldest sons in separate accidents.
Orbison was a natural baritone, but music scholars have suggested that he had a three- or four-octave range. The combination of Orbison's powerful, impassioned voice and complex musical arrangements led many critics to refer to his music as operatic, giving him the sobriquet "the Caruso of Rock".[note 1]Elvis Presley and Bono have stated his voice was, respectively, the greatest and most distinctive they had ever heard. 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 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, and the Songwriters Hall
