6 Amburn, Ellis (re: Roy Orbison) DARK STAR - The Roy Orbison Story

Light wear on the corners of the dustjacket; bumped on the lower right of the front panel; no interior markings. Elvis Presley once said Roy Orbison had the best voice in the world. And guys like The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, admired his music and played with him along the way. This is the story of one of rock's most renowned yet unfulfilled figures, the story of an uneasy man who hid behind dark glasses, black clothes and dyed-black hair, and who possessed the most operatic, haunting voice in popular music.
