Roy Orbison: readers’ favourite ‘50s rocker

Gearing up for the start of In Dreams: Roy Orbison, the four part series starting on BBC Radio 2 next Monday (1 Dec) at 2330, I dug out the poll conducted here a few years ago which showed Orbison to be even more popular among readers than Elvis!

Favourite ‘50s rockers:

Roy Orbison 26%
Elvis Presley 24.6%
Chuck Berry 21.9%
Buddy Holly 17.8%
Everly Brothers 9.5%
Little Richard 0%

Much as I rate the Big-O, I’d personally rank him after Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers.
