Description:

A cutting from a 1970s visitors book, clearly signed in ballpoints by both Roy Orbison (dating 25th August 74 and adding his address as Nash Tenn USA) AND Lovelace Watkins (dating 21st October 1974 and adding his address as Las Vegas Nevada USA).

Double mounted for fine display with photographs.

LOVELACE WATKINS autograph d1995. Charismatic Las Vegas based singer nicknamed "The Black Sinatra" known for the power and quality of his voice. Despite this his career never fully lived up to its potential , additional poor management decisions led to him enjoying only limited commercial success.

Certification:

From a fantastic collection of visitors books dated between the mid 1960s to the mid 1980s, containing literally hundreds of celebrity signatures. The visitors books were collected by the staff and employees of Barclays Bank at Heathrow Airport during this period ; we assume this branch must have been located in or close to the VIP lounge. The autographs are almost all dated, many include the addresses of the signers and collectors notations / stamps by the original (bank employee) obtainers. There are also references to the bank and quality of service by some of the signers. By the very nature of the books the signatures really authenticate themselves and provide a fascinating insight and mix of famous British and American names of the period. High profile signers include ; Muhammad Ali / Robert De Niro / Jack Nicholson / Sid Vicious / Marlon Brando / Mick Jagger / Keith Moon / Sylvester Stallone / Roy Orbison / Thin Lizzy / Graham Hill etc etc. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK

About

About Roy Orbison

Roy Orbison

ROY ORBISON d1988. American rock n roll singer nicknamed "The Big O" known for his distinctive tenor voice and trademark black sunglasses. Remembered for a string of classic 1960s ballads including ; Crying / Blue Bayou / Too Soon To Know and UK No1s "Only The Lonely" / "Its Over" / "Pretty Woman". Orbison endured a great deal of personal tragedy in his life ; losing his wife in a motorcycle accident in 1966 and two of his three sons in a house fire in 1968. His career peaked again in the 1980s with solo chart hits and his membership of pop supergroup The Travelling Wilburys. He died of a heart attack aged just 52 on December 6th 1988.
