Fans Petition For Orbison Memorial

Fans of late rock 'n' roll star ROY ORBISON are campaigning for a plaque to be erected on his unmarked grave in Los Angeles.

More than 8,000 people have so far lent their names to a petition urging the OH, PRETTY WOMAN hitmaker's wife BARBARA to establish a lasting tribute.

A spokeswoman for his fan club said, "He was tremendously loved. It's a shame his grave remains unmarked."

Orbison died in 1988 from a heart attack.

He once famously said, "People often ask me how would I like to be remembered and I answer that I would simply like to be remembered."

I would like to be the one to design the memorial. I would be honored. Truly. Please send me all information, requirements, site. I can submit any number of styles. But true to the artist I believe a portrait in relief sculpture or a full size figure depicting that famous moment sitting at a bench as if he were watching that pretty woman walking by...once again! What say you!? I'm game! Thank you.

i think it is really horrible that there is no memorial on his grave. he said he wanted to be remembered he always will to his fans but i think it's sad that he has no marker.it looks like nobody cares. i wish i could get to america i would put one there myself. and why wont she let a film be made of him.it's just being petty. i loved him when i was 14 and i love him now.it was my greatest wish to meet him but something always happened to prevent it. when he died i was just heartbroken. the only man who comes near to him in looks and voice is gerry grant. he could play him, but there is only one roy.
