Roy Orbison was a good friend. We struck up a friendship when concert business partner Les Vogt and I booked Roy for his first concert outside of the U.S. in 1962. He played the Garden Auditorium at the PNE.
This from Howie Vickers: “I put together a band and we were the opening act for that concert! Dick and Deedee were also on the bill, and Bobby Goldsboro was Roy’s rhythm guitar player. Aaahh memories, a loooonnnnnggg time ago!”
He was one of the most generous and good natured entertainers we had ever met. Les and I loved the guy.
We booked him into Expo ’86 when he was on the comeback trail. He wowed the audience once more.
