Happy Birthday, Roy Orbison!


From Times Square, to London, to Australia to Nashville and every place in between, there are events taking place this week to celebrate the birthday of a musical icon. 

Roy Orbison would have been 74 on April 23rd 2010. This photo was taken April 23rd of 1963. The Beatles were on their first major tour in the U.K. opening for a musical hero, Roy Orbison. John and Ringo got Roy a birthday cake to help him celebrate that day! 

You can celebrate too with six downloadable Roy Orbison songs in the Rock Band music store, including "In Dreams," "You Got It," and "Oh, Pretty Woman."
