Glen and Roy were two of the greats...I really dig Roy's music as do many of the people in this vid:



One of my favorite Orbison songs... cool

I'd guess that would be because public awareness of Roy came years before anyone heard of Glen as a musician or singer or what...

Like, Roy's earliest singles went out about '56 or so, and Glen didn't get one of his own out there until '61 or '62. And then Roy's efforts were heard on multiple formats while at first much of Glen's stuff was heard only on country stations. And he spent much of his time earlier as a member of some singing group or as a top session man. It wouldn't surprise me if Glen could be heard on some old Orbison recording doing some of the "overdub" work. wink

JOHNNY SHINES, a blues picker never mentioned by ANY of the "experts" here, would be 103 if still alive. wink

Ricky's lead player James Burton, is still around. He's one of my all-time favorite guitar players. A session man much like Glen Campbell that played for many of the greats... cool
