“A just-released biography by Orbison’s sons Roy Jr., Wesley and Alex, titled The Authorized Roy Orbison, peels away the layers of the singer’s mystique to present a complete picture of the man, a loving husband and father as well as a musical kingpin. The three siblings, who affectionately refer to themselves as “Roy’s Boys,” and music journalist Jeff Slate chronicle Orbison’s career from his Texas boyhood to recording stardom and the tragic end to his life at the much-too-young age of 52. More than 300 photographs, many of them never before published, dot the book and add the necessary context to the Roy Orbison saga.”
