This is the first in a series of books about the Legends of Soul. I started with Aretha because, well, she is the Queen. Aretha could easily be put into the category of rock and roll.

Roy Orbison had one of the best voices in pop music. It was a forceful, almost operatic bel canto tenor that is unlike anyone else in music. When you hear a Roy Orbison song, you almost immediately know who it is. Roy had a wonderful career that was cut short at what could be called, the prime of his life.

Paul Anka started out as a teen idol. He was the boy the girls all swooned over when he sang. I listened to the radio a lot when I was a kid and always enjoyed a Paul Anka song when it came on. Even though Paul was a great singer (and still is), he’s also one of the best songwriters that we’ve had in the past fifty years. He has written songs that have become icons in our American culture.

Jerry Lee Lewis, also known as “The Killer”, and the “Ferriday Fireball” had a tumultuous career.

Buddy Holly lived a short life, killed at the age of 22 while touring in the mid-west in the middle of a freezing winter in 1959. That day is called "The Day the Music Died", but the music never really died. Buddy Holly has had more of an influence on Rock and Roll that most from that time era.
