Through the Decades with Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly

Through the Decades with Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly

Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly both grew up in the same part of Texas. They recorded their earlier work in the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, even at one point recording the same songs: ‘An empty cup’ (and a broken date) as well as ‘You’ve Got Love’, both written by Roy Orbison.

The two Artists brought a unique Texas influence into their music and through their creative writing for both an individual sound was born!

Roy Orbison went on to write so many songs including ‘Only the Lonely’ and ‘Crying’, and Buddy Holly in his short Career showed his writing talents would have gone on to match any songwriter in the world, which earned him a place (13th) in ‘The Rolling Stone’ ‘100 Greatest Artist of all Time’!
