Roy Orbison died today in 1988 of a heart attack.
I wouldn’t consider myself a huge fan. To be honest, I always associate Roy Orbison with the David Lynch movie Blue Velvet.
You know the scene: the one where Frank Booth takes Jeffrey Beaumont to Ben’s place for a Pabst Blue Ribbon. Ben’s lip-synching of “In Dreams” into a shop light is pretty intense.
As is a later scene where Booth yanks Beaumont out of his Dodge Challenger and beats the shit out of him, screaming “I’ll send you straight to hell, fucker!”
You’re fucking lucky to be alive…
Tip a glass to Roy, fucker.
