    Dennis, your posting on Roy O was indeed a special treat. I never knew Roy personally but was a lifelong HUGE fan of his. In fact, when people ask me my 5 favorite musical artists of all time, Roy is at the top of my list. He was a life-changer for a lot of people, including me to some extent.

    As I mentioned sometime ago, I have his CDs and a video he did with other stars.

    Very special!

    Whatever happened to that great post you wrote about going to the Midland Youth Center, seeing The Sparkles play, etc.? I wrote a huge response of my times there as well, but can’t find it anywhere. I finally admitted that I had a schoolboy crush on Lyn Stoletenberg Ray, LOL. She read it and sent me a sweet note…Ahh Ha,!!

    Hey Wemus:

    I haven’t transferred over all the stories and pictures yet. We have 150 stories already transferred and on the blog and I have more to go. It’s a tedious task and I apologize for the delay. I’ll work on getting your great stories transferred later tonight.

    What a huge tragedy when we lost Roy Orbison.

    I treasure a two CD collection of his songs, “The Essential Roy Orbison” and also the video “Black and White Night” with friends Jackson Browne, T Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, k d lang, Bonnie Raitt, J D Souther, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, and Jennifer Barnes. Both of these treasures are very special.

    I always drew parallels with Roy’s music and some of the songs of The Sparkles…on a different plain, of course.

    Roy was one of the greatest talents of our time…and surely of all times.
