Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly Through the Decades

Born within a few months of each other, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly grew up in the same part of Texas. They each recorded their early 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 of which were written by Orbison.
Both artists brought a distinctive Texan influence to their music and yet, through their individual writing styles, their unique sounds were born.
Roy Orbison went on to write more than 20 albums across 4 decades, with tracks including the well known ‘Only the Lonely’ and ‘Crying’ and, in 1987, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
Buddy Holly, despite his tragically short life, more than proved his writing talents with a catalogue including 'Peggy Sue' and 'True Love Ways'. In 2010 he was awarded 13th place in Rolling Stone magazine's ‘100 Greatest Artists Of All Time’.
