    Roy Orbison to be honored by Nashville - UPI 4/28/06

    Nashville plans to honor Roy Orbison

    NASHVILLE, April 28 (UPI) -- The City of Nashville Friday announced plans to honor the late Roy Orbison, who would have turned 70 this month.
    Nashville Mayor Bill Purcell will issue an official proclamation Monday citing Orbison for his "significant cultural impact to the city of Nashville, the state of Tennessee and the entire world," Legacy Recording said in a news release.
    The ceremony will take place at RCA Studio B on Music Row, where Orbison recorded many of his hits, including "Only The Lonely" and "In Dreams."
    Orbison, who would have turned 70 on April 23, died in December 1988.
    The multiple Grammy Award winner is also a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame.
    He won his final Grammy two years after his death for best male vocalist for his performance of "Oh! Pretty Woman" from the concert film "Roy Orbison and Friends: Black & White Night."

    Roy's the stuff of 'Dreams'
    His voice still packs magic

    Roy Orbison's hits are featured on 'In Dreams' tonight on Ch. 21.


    ROY ORBISON: IN DREAMS.
    Tonight at 8, WLIW/Ch. 21.

    With Roy Orbison, maybe more than any other rock 'n' roll star, everything always comes back to the music.
    It's not that there was anything wrong with Orbison the person. He was a modest, ordinary-looking, soft-spoken guy from Texas, by all accounts a prince of a fellow.
    But the reason we care about him is more basic: his voice, which commands the spotlight of "In Dreams," an hour-long special that airs tonight on Ch. 21.
    Barbara Orbison will be in the channel's studio to talk about her late husband, who died of a heart attack in 1988 and would have turned 70 last Sunday.
    The treasures here, though, are the archival performances on which the special is built.

    These date back to 1960, with many drawn from the 1987 special "A Black and White Night," where Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, James Burton and others backed Orbison on his greatest hits.
    It hardly matters that those hits were first cut a quarter-century earlier. Orbison's voice had lost barely a scintilla of its power and unique timbre.
