Roy Orbison performs final concert this day in 1988

Roy Orbison performed his last concert this day in 1988. We lost one of the world's greatest singers just 2 days after this concert. The final song of the show was "Pretty Woman". Hear the live performance of that here...http://rockabillynblues.blogspot.com/20 ... rt-in.html

That concert came out on cd a few years back. If he had to die young, at least he went knowing his music was still loved, I've always wondered if "Mystery Girl" would've been as big as it was without the attention caused by his death? Maybe there was enough of a buzz from his recent tours and the Wilburys album to do it.
