New, unread crisp 1st edition hardcover in like illustrated, unclipped dust wrapper in new mylar. More than suitable for gift-giving. 243 pp text unmarked. Biography of the talented singer/songwriter. A quiet man, who K.D. Lang would refer to as "Buddha," Orbison was more interested in building model airplanes, watching films, and reading books in his den than talking about himself or partying hard. Yet he was nothing shy of a superstar - determined to succeed, driven by a relentless, innate love for music that started in his childhood, and blessed with what Elvis considered to be the best pipes in the business. In Rhapsody in Black, John Kruth tells the story of Roy Orbison in prose as musical as the artist and does not shy away from or trivialize the personal pain, alienation, and tragic events that shaped Orbison's singular personality and music.
