Voldar: , . Mr King's book, Penny Arcade Or What Did You Do In The Sixties, Daddy? Meet the Leeds man who wrote pop songs for 1960s stars Sammy King wrote one of Roy Orbison's greatest hits, and worked alongside many Sixties stars, from The Beatles to Lulu. A one time sales rep from Batley who penned a song which outsold The Beatles and The Rolling Stones has written a book about his life rubbing shoulders with the stars. Sammy King, 68, can remember the exact time and place he wrote the first lines to the song Penny Arcade, which he later pitched to Roy Orbison, who had a world-wide smash with the single. Mr King said: "The inspiration for the song came to me during a camping holiday with some friends in North Wales in 1969. I was enjoying the final moments of an unbelievable sunset. Within a matter of moments I had the first two lines of a song." The song went on to become the hit Penny Arcade, which reached the top 20 in the UK charts but shot straight to number one in Australia and New Zealand, outselling The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Mr King said he wanted to write the book to set the record straight: "There are a lot of myths about how Roy Orbison swindled me out of the song for a fiver and none of that is true. He was the perfect gentleman and very polite. I can't say it made my fortune because at that time I had to pay a lot of tax on the royalties but I still get them today and it pays for a few little extras for me and the wife. Over and above that, though, it was the prestige which mattered." He went on to write three more songs for Roy Orbison: Say No More, I Got Nothing and After Tonight. Mr King had been involved in numerous bands up to that point, including The Dingos and The Voltaires, who at one time acted as backing group for Sixties stars Cilla Black, Craig Douglas and Danny Williams of Moon River fame. He was also good friends with the singer Gene Pitney, who tried to persuade him to release solo records. Mr King, who is married to Linda and has one daughter, Amanda, by his first marriage and a step-daughter, Julie, said: "I would send demo tapes to Gene, who I knew well, and he would always want to release them as they were, but it was a big commitment in terms of time. You were expected to promote them and it meant being on the road a lot." Mr King, who spent two years in hospital as a teenager after suffering a hip infection, knows about triumph over adversity. "I was devastated when I had to go into hospital. I had always been interested in music but football was my first love. When I came out, my pronounced limp put paid to any thoughts of my playing football ever again. "I bought a drum kit and started playing in pubs and clubs with my elder brother Brian in a band called The Southside Skiffle Group. A little later Brian and I teamed up with a friend, Betty Gledhill, to form The Three Lloyds. "With The Voltaires, we released a song called What's the Secret? It wasn't a massive hit but it had a big enough impact for us to get fan mail, which surprised me. We went on to support Cilla Black, then did the cabaret circuit for a while." The list of people Mr King has worked with is a Who's Who of Sixties showbiz. He was on the same bill as Acker Bilk, The Beatles, Johnny Mathis, Louis Armstrong, Dame Shirley Bassey, Cliff Richard and Lulu, not to mention The Rolling Stones and Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, and many more besides. But he was always willing to lend a hand in any capacity. He said: "I was once working at Batley Variety Club and I used to help my first wife, Dorothy, who worked in the cloakroom. One night, I took this woman's coat and then later I was on stage and I saw her pointing at me and gesturing to her husband, saying, 'that's the man from the cloakroom'. Next thing you know, I was playing guitar in the orchestra when Cliff Richard came on and she was gesturing 'it's him again'. "Then when she was leaving, I was back in the cloakroom helping out and I gave her her coat. She couldn't believe it. I only wished I could have found some way to be her taxi driver for her trip home." * Mr King's book, Penny Arcade Or What Did You Do In The Sixties, Daddy? is available now from amazon online, priced £14.25. http://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/news/Meet-the-Leeds-man-who.6283815.jp

Voldar: NPR , 50. Roy Orbison: A Great Voice, A Lonely Sound Roy Orbison was one of the founding fathers of rock 'n' roll. And, boy, could he rock. But it was his distinctive baritone and melancholy vocal and songwriting style that had the greatest influence on American rock and pop music and that make him a natural candidate for NPR's 50 Great Voices series. Among rock 'n' roll's pioneers, Orbison was different. Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard had that pound-the-piano self-confidence. Elvis Presley had his sexy hip-shake swagger. Chuck Berry had one-of-a-kind guitar riffs to go with his trademark duck walk. But Orbison with his thick corrective glasses, insurance-salesman looks and stiff stage presence stood out. He and Buddy Holly shared what you might call geek chic: a unique style expressed in what he sang about and how he sang it. Orbison wasn't afraid to sing about fear, anxiety, loss or insecurity. "Roy's extreme development of those kinds of emotions and the intensity with which he expressed them certainly went against the grain of the kind of macho, confident, masculine display that characterized so much of mainstream rock 'n' roll," Orbison biographer Peter Lehman says. Orbison's song titles alone tell part of the story: "Crying," "Only the Lonely," "Running Scared," "Crawling Back." Lehman, who directs the center for film, media and popular culture at Arizona State University, says Orbison frequently utilized an almost masochistic stage persona, which Lehman says seems to embrace and almost revel in pain and loss. "[Feelings] that that character brings upon himself, that he seems to almost long for," Lehman says. "There's even a kind of public-spectacle aspect to this pain and suffering. And the title 'Crawling Back,' of course, even points to that." Sweet Voice, Dark Vision Orbison had a one-of-a-kind voice with a three-octave range and what one writer called a 'glass-shattering falsetto.' No less than Elvis Presley called Orbison "the greatest singer in the world." Canadian singer k.d. lang who shared a Grammy with Orbison in 1987 for their remake of the Orbison/Joe Melson classic "Crying" says that what made Orbison such a moving singer was the juxtaposition of his beautiful voice with a dark vision. "And yet this powerful, high, flowing liquid voice came out of him," lang says. "I think it was that contrast that really moved people. And he was such a gentle, gentle spirit that you felt like you could share your vulnerability in listening to him." Take the lyrics for "In Dreams": A candy-colored clown they call the sandman Tiptoes to my room every night Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper 'Go to sleep, everything is all right.' Orbison was shy and soft-spoken, but his childhood was pretty normal. He was born in Vernon, Texas, on April 23, 1936. He spent his earliest years there and in Fort Worth. After World War II, the family moved to the small Texas oil town of Wink, a town Orbison once described as dominated by "football, oil fields, oil, grease and sand." Orbison told the BBC in 1985 that he forged his guitar and singing styles by listening incessantly to the West Texas radio stations that drifted into town. He heard country, a little rockabilly, Tex Mex and zydeco. But mostly country. "I listened to the radio all the time," Orbison said. "And so I learned all of the songs. And all of those influences probably just settled into one thing, and I'm the result of whatever that was." He wanted a harmonica for his sixth birthday, but his father bought him a guitar. He wrote his first song, "A Vow of Love," when he was about 8. Rejected Songwriter, Shy Star By the 1950s, Orbison was in Nashville, where he worked as a staff writer for Acuff-Rose Music. He'd already made a few recordings for the Je-Wel and Sun labels and earned some royalties for "Claudette," which was recorded by the Everly Brothers. But the Everlys and Presley rejected "Only the Lonely," so Orbison recorded it himself for Monument Records. The song became a huge hit, going to No. 1 in the U.K. and No. 4 in the U.S. The lyrics were typical Orbison: There goes my baby There goes my heart They're gone forever So far apart But only the lonely Know why I cry Only the lonely Friends say Orbison's brooding musical persona didn't match his real character. He was, they say, a fun- and life-loving guy. The signature dark glasses were an accidental marketing tool. While on tour with The Beatles in 1963, he left his regular glasses on the plane. So that night, he had to wear his thick prescription sunglasses onstage. "Everyone was at the show, and they took these pictures. And they flashed around the world, and we became very popular after that," Orbison told the BBC. "And so I was stuck with the dark glasses. It was embarrassing at the time." Orbison certainly wasn't embarrassed to express his pain if he got dumped or didn't get the girl. Yet even when he got the girl, there was no "look at me" boasting. There was often a sense of longing, a hint of surprise or even downheartedness mixed with triumph. "I always have to remind people that half my songs at least are upbeat and positive," Orbison said. "And even when I sing a song like 'Running Scared,' I get the girl. 'Pretty Woman,' I get the girl. [Yet] there still seems to be a melancholy quality to my voice." That voice was largely ignored in the 1970s, but Orbison came back with a vengeance in the '80s with several collaborations, including the all-star band The Traveling Wilburys. Roy Orbison died of a heart attack on Dec. 6, 1988, just as a new generation was busy rediscovering and embracing his music and voice. The Wilburys had just won a Grammy, and Orbison had just been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was only 52. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=126475636&ps=cprs

After a quiet period in the seventies he made a comeback in the eighties both as a solo artist and later as a member of the Traveling Wilburys. This live recording, released now for the first time, comes from a concert at the Front Row Theater in Cleveland on December 4^th 1988, just two days before his sudden death from a heart attack on December 6th at the age of only 52. Orbison is in fine form delivering many of his best loved songs in his own unique style and with no indication of the tragedy to come. It is a fitting tribute to a truly great artist.

Voldar: Today marks the release of Roy Orbison's final concert on CD Eagle Rock Entertainment will release a recording of Roy Orbison's final concert on August 10, 2011. Recorded on December 4, 1988, just two days before his death, the CDs song sequence stays true to the original set list of the performance. Enitled Roy Orbison: The Last Concert, it has fourteen tracks that literally represent his last work. Orbison's final concert was held in Highland Heights in Akron, Ohio, the same state that houses the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, in which he was inducted in 1987. In support of the Halls exhibit entitled Haunting and Yearning: The Life and Music of Roy Orbison, which had a successful run through the end of 1996, Gibson Guitar's Custom Division designed a Roy Orbison ES-335 Reissue for it, and gave one his wife Barbara Orbison. The guitar is an exact reproduction of the black ES-335 that Roy used with the Traveling Wilburys, which featured the late Beatle George Harrison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne. Production of the guitar was limited to 70 pieces honoring Roys 70th birthday. Originally released on iTunes only two years ago, this marks its first time being made available on disc. With its flawless sound on the recording, Roy Orbison: The Last Concert is a historically significant addition to Roy Orbison's already lengthy discography. Having won multiple Grammy Awards, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in January, 2010, whether it was his solo work, or his recordings with the Travelling Wiburys, his music has continued to sell after his death, with two posthumous Top 5 Billboard charting albums. On his behalf, his wife Barbara accepted the Recording Academys Lifetime Achievement Award after his death. An ongoing campaign to have Orbison commemorated on a U.S. postage stamp has been ensuing for the last several years online at a website started by Orbison's widow. Among those who have signed the petition are George Harrison's widow, Olivia Harrison and U2's Bono. The Texas-born singer songwriter generated many hit records throughout the years, often filled with wistful lyrics about longing, sadness and unrequited love. The soft-spoken vocalist died of a heart attack in Nashville, after having dinner with his mother. Orbison was laid to rest in the Westwood area of Los Angeles, in the same cemetery as many iconic Hollywood celebrities, and other legendary musicians, including Frank Zappa and Beach Boy Carl Wilson. Orbison died young, at age 54, with many believing the dedicated musician "worked himself to death." Sure to please, the back-up vocals on Roy Orbison: The Last Concert mesh well with Orbisons voice. The album opens with what was Orbisons first major hit, Only The Lonely, released forty years ago. The gigs next song, Dream Baby, was made available a year later. Dream Baby was issued the year following. The albums next track Mean Woman Blues, was released the subsequent year. The next song in the live performance was Blue Bayou, a song that also became a hit for Linda Ronstadt. The concert continues with Crying, another career victory for Obrison in the early 60s. Several other mellow songs grace the album, including Working For The Man. Although Orbison penned other popular songs after that year, the most recently written song on the album is Lana, originally recorded in 1962. While he had many popular songs, he is most known for his 1964 song Oh, Pretty Woman, which was covered by rockers Van Halen on their 1982 Diver Down album. This is the song that ended his final concert. http://www.examiner.com/x-30199-Rock-Music-Examiner~y2010m8d10-Today-marks-the-release-of-Roy-Orbisons-final-concert-on-CD

Voldar: This Day in Music Spotlight: The Tragedies of Roy Orbison Roy Orbison was on tour in England on September 14, 1968, when tragedy struck back in Tennessee. His family home in Hendersonville (the Nashville suburb where 60s country stars like Cash and Conway Twitty built superstar homes) burned to the ground. Two of his sons, Roy Jr. and Anthony, were killed in the fire. The youngest son, Wesley was miraculously saved by Roys parents. Orbison was devastated by the terrible tragedy and the blow knocked his career into a temporary holding pattern. That Orbison ever came out of that tragic cloud is amazing. Whats even more remarkable is that in 1968 he was still recovering from a previous tragedy in 1966 the death of his wife Claudette, who died in a motorcycle accident. Claudette, the inspiration for a song he penned in 1955 and a hit for the Everly Brothers in 1958, was out riding with Roy when she was hit by a truck. Orbison quit music and only ventured back into entertainment game in 1967 with the movie Fastest Guitar Alive. He remained unsure if hed continue as a musician. His tour of England in 1968 was a major part of his musical comeback and as he struggled to deal with the fire tragedy, the early 70s would be dark days indeed for Orbison. And if that wasnt enough, in 1973, Roys elder brother Grady Lee also died in a motor accident in Tennessee while on his way to a family celebration for Thanksgiving at Roys house in Nashville. Hardly surprising perhaps that 10 years after Orbison lost his two songs in that Hendersonville fire hed suffer a major heart attack while still a relatively young man in his early 40s. He recovered, however, and enjoyed a well-deserved career renaissance in the 80s after his In Dreams featured so prominently in David Lynchs cult movie Blue Velvet. Back in the limelight, Orbison re-recorded some of his hits with T-Bone Burnett and re-emerged in the music business as one of the original pioneers of rock and roll, rightly praised and feted by the stars of the day. His stint with supergroup, the Traveling Wilburys put him back at the top. Sadly his last album, the excellent Mystery Girl, was released posthumously, after his death on December 8, 1988. http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/Features/day-in-music-0914/
