With a talent like Roy Orbison, you can only write the facts because what he contributed to the world of rock and roll would take practically forever to put down on paper. Besides I want you to know about his great singing and the songs which would pull at your heartstrings. Roy Orbison got the nickname the Big O, and was a very popular American singer and songwriter. He had a powerful kind of voice, and sang sad, heartfelt, and very emotional ballads. When he first started singing it was at high school in a country and western band.
A great 1960s rock and roll band from Britain known as The Yardbirds. Among their most memorable hits are “For Your Love”, “Over Under Sideways Down”, and “Heart Full of Soul.” If you’re like me and you love rock then think a bit. I react to songs and know which I hear that become my instant favorites and then there are those I listen to now and then and I recognize. However, I never paid much attention to who the performers were until YouTube came along and I searched for songs and made certain discoveries. So this trip down memory lane about bands which have been popular and are still popular is a fascinating one for me and I hope for you too. Sort of like an education in rock and roll.
You would think that if you’re young, talented, loved by millions, and rich your problems would be small and life basically would be good. Well, apparently that isn’t true, because Hollywood lost a very talented actress on August 5, 1962, when Marilyn Monroe was found dead at home in Los Angeles, California. I have seen a lot of her movies and I can say that, except for Niagara, I preferred her in lighter roles, in movies such as How to Marry a Millionaire, Some Like It Hot and The Seven Year Itch.
