Barbara Orbison 1950-2011

Barbara Orbison 1950-2011
Barbara Orbison died last week, 6th December, of pancreatic cancer on the 23rd anniversary of her husband Roy Orbison's death. She and Orbison married in 1969 and raised their children in Malibu and Nashville, where Barbara also ran music-publishing company Still Working Music. Barbara managed her husband's career until his death, and continued to keep his legacy alive.

Genesis Publications was fortunate to work with Barbara on THE TRAVELLING WILBURYS, which chronicles the adventures of her husband and the band in their own words, photographs, Polaroids, drawings, music and lyric sheets.

'Roy might be in the kitchen and George would come down and say 'I have Roy Orbison in my kitchen!' And I would say 'You know we've been here now for three weeks!' 'I still don't believe it!' And Roy had similar feelings'. - Barbara Orbison

We would like to offer our condolences to Barbara's family and friends.
