The Beatles toured with Roy Jr’s Dad in the U.K. in 1963 and were fascinated with him. They developed a life long friendship with him, proven when George invited him to join the Traveling Wilburys. Roy Jr and his brothers and author Jeff Slate have published the offical biography if Roy’s amazing life, called Orbison. Roy Jr. will be signing copies of this outstanding book at the FEST.
Roy Jr. will also be performing a special set of mostly new solo material, on the Apple Jam Stage early Sunday afternoon.
