Archetype - Roy Orbison

The definition of picking a style that works and sticking with it. Consistency, gentleman. Orbison was a pop-song writing machine in the 50s & 60s. The Beatles OPENED FOR HIM!! Trademark looks, trademark hooks. Part of that look came by accident when he left behind his glasses on a plane during a tour, leaving him with only his prescription shades. I've been thinking of him lately after I came across this band Ancient Crux. I think we are ready to move on from the Brian Wilson influenced records and slide into something more Orbisony.
