Roy Orbison’s family background

There was a knock late in the evening and they looked through the hole and it was someone with a sweatshirt and a leather jacket and a baseball cap, and my grandmother said ‘no, no, no, we’re not having anyone, this looks suspicious’.
“And so she opened the door and sent him off and then she shut the door. And then my grandmother said to my mum ‘Who’s Bob Dylan because he’s looking for your dad?’ So they had to open the door and run and go and get him,” he said.

  1. Blimey, Brother Thomas? He was gadding about quite a bit when I was there. Umm, for a time, lived in a caravan with the wife of one of the math masters. At the bottom of the garden of the math master, which must have been something of a strain for the bloke (who was v Catholic). Couple of daughters of that family close friends with one of my sisters, and another was in my year. 10 kids or something in the family.

    Wonder if that’s who he married?
