Pretty Woman. 🎶
En 1964, Roy Orbison saca por todas las emisoras Pretty Woman, una canción famosa que por regla debes haber escuchado aunque sea una vez. La canción se le ocurrio a su co-autor (Bill Dees) mientras la esposa de Roy (Claudette) le pedía dinero a su esposo para ir a la tienda. A este se le vino una frase para la escena que termino diciendola "las mujeres bonitas no necesitan dinero" y le pregunto a Roy, "¿No te suena divertido esto" Y cantó, "Pretty woman, don't need no money" a lo que respondio Roy, "No hay nada divertido sobre una mujer bonita" y empezo con la letra "Pretty woman, walking down the street". Cuando Claudette volvió de la tienda, ya tenian la canción. 🎵
Y aunque no tiene nada que ver la canción con la foto. La modelo no deja de ser #Prettywoman. Y que ahora sabes un dato curioso sobre esta canción que aun resuena en nuestros días. 🙂🧐

It’s hard to explain what it feels like to walk into #SunStudios in #Memphis... The legacy of this humble, three-room (including the reception area) building is staggering. Originally set up by #SamPhillips, primarily to record blues musicians, this tiny enterprise - the #MemphisRecordingService - changed the sound of music beyond recognition, and changed youth culture worldwide at the same time.
Blues geniuses including #HowlinWolf, #JuniorParker, #LittleMilton, #BBKing and #RufusThomas recorded here in the early 1950s.
#JackieBrenston and the #DeltaCats recorded " #Rocket88" there in 1951. It truly is the #birthplaceofrockandroll!!! And then, there were the #musicallegends including #elvis, #carlperkins, #johnnycash, #jerryleelewis and #royorbison, to name but a few... The studio itself is tiny but in its original state. And standing there, looking at the original equipment, including the microphones, is really something... Of course we were also reminded of the wonderful movie #mysterytrain by #jimjarmusch, which featured this historic cultural icon prominently, and also contains the best three word argument of all time (about who is better): “Elvis”
“Carl Perkins”.... #rocklegends #joestrummer #stevebuschemi #screaminjayhawkins #MasatoshiNagase #706UnionAvenue
Roy Orbinson the Hologram. Being a big music fan and a technology guy I had to see how they were going to pull off Roy Orbinson in digital. I have to say it was very impressive. The holographic image was so life like you really thought it was a human standing before you. They had the mannerisms, chord changes, head turns and even the frills on his jacket moving as he played. A live orchestra played the songs perfectly with Roys voice and some backup singers. If I had to find something to be critical over maybe it was just too perfect. No buzzing amps, missed chords and little interaction with the band or audience. A bit clinical I guess but overall it was quite amazing. Here is a very short video and a couple of photos. The photo police were heavy and were stopping everyone. I’m not sure I would go to another Hologram concert but I certainly wouldn’t rule it out.
라디오에서 나오는 노래가 좋길래 찾아보니 #royorbison 이라는 가수의 #indreams 라는 노래였다🙂 목소리도 좋고 가사도 너무 좋았으😆 몰랐는데 이 분이 #영화귀여운여인 의 유명한 ost인 #ohprettywoman🎧 노래를 부른 가수였다!🙊😯 어쩐지 목소리가 낯설지가 않았으 ㅋㅋㅋ
I close my eyes then I drift away
Into the Magic Night, I softly say
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of #TheTravelingWilburys, ongoing series —
“‘If you try hard to do something, then often nothing happens,‘ said George. ‘At other times you twitch your face, and there’s the Wilbury. I’m a great believer in destiny, or some creative support that comes from a higher source - even though it’s only pop music.‘ […] For Harrison, the experience was a welcome return to basics, ‘because the Wilburys remind you of good old Carl Perkins tunes or Bob Dylan tunes. It’s like a pastiche, a montage of all the good bits you remember.‘ […] This, for him, was a way of hitting back at all he hates in Eighties pop, ‘which over the last ten years has got so computerized and so monotonous. I’m amazed that people don’t realize that they’ve heard the same drum sample on the last 59,000 records. People have got so far from the human element with their computers.‘ […] Now there’s the major question — will Harrison and the Wilburys actually go on tour
He admitted that ‘I hate waking up in motels in Philadelphia, I’d rather be at home,‘ but as a fan of the other members of the band he’d love to see them perform… ‘so maybe I’d be included to do something.‘ - The Guardian, 5 November 1988 🎸 Photo: Neal Preston. #Wilburys30 #GeorgeHarrison #TomPetty #RoyOrbison #JeffLynne #BobDylan #TravelingWilburys #OTD #thateventuality
#JohnnyCash and #JuneCarterCash, with their son John Carter on the left and Roy Orbison's son #WesleyOrbison, on right. c. 1991 / Edited from my collection, reminds me of a story John shared in, 'Cash: The Autobiography,' he wrote with Patrick Carr.

''Roy’s death was sudden and shocking, but something wonderful did occur before it happened. The day before Roy was taken, he went to see his surviving son from his first marriage, Wesley and closed the distance that had grown between them. They hugged, said they loved each other and sat up singing and writing songs late into Roy’s last night on earth. Wesley says it was the most wonderful night of his life.
Wesley is still within our circle. A few years ago I started seeing him leaning against the fence bordering the place where his brothers died, where the home of his childhood once stood. One day I stopped and asked him what he was looking at. ''Oh, I like to come up here sometimes and look at this lot,'' he said, ''It gives me a little comfort.'' Well, I told him, there were some mighty good fruit trees and grapevines in there and whenever the fruit was ripe he should just go on in and help himself. Bring a basket. ''Okay,'' he said. ''Thank you, I will.''
It was June who got the idea to give him more than the fruit. I agreed, and without any further fuss we signed the lot over to him, free and clear. Now when I see him leaning on the fence I know he’s thinking about the house he wants to build there someday, and I don’t think I lost a thing in the deal. I feel like old Roy smiled down and said. “Thank you, John.''
