June 6, 1966

JUNE6On this day in 1966, Roy Orbison’s wife Claudette died instantly when her motorcycle was hit by a truck.

She and Roy had remarried two months earlier after reconciling after a divorce.

Two years later, Orbison’s home burnt down, killing his two young sons who were trapped inside.

Now we know why he wore those sunglasses and dressed in black; it wasn’t a costume.
