    The Roy Orbison Story chronicles the life and times of a classic figure from a bygone era of popular music. This musical presentation captures the spirit of the legendary singer/songwriter through a combination of narration and music. From his birth in West Texas to his death in 1988, his story is told by his brother Sam, who traveled with Roy as his business manager for many years. The songs are delivered by Bernie Jessome and a full band as the history winds from the early years in Texas, through the triumphs and tragedies, until the story ends in 1988.
