Roy Orbison to Finally be Awarded Walk of Fame Star

Roy OrbisonOn January 29, 2010 Rock and Roll legend Roy Orbison will receive his Star on the Walk Of Fame.

Roy Orbison was one of the very first rock and roll stars, and was an international household name by the time he was 21. Loved the world over for a soaring 5 octave voice, and his incredible and innovative way of writing songs, Orbison was an artist without limits. Orbison is one of the very few artists to have been accepted by the world in all forms of popular music, and Roy is one of the exceptional artists to have won Grammys in pop, rock and roll and country categories.

Almost impossible to believe the man did not have a star all this time. He cuts an iconic silhouette even in an 8-bit grayscale graphic pulled from the extensive Losanjealous Photo Library.
