Del Shannon was one of the handful of American rock ‘n’ rollers of the 1960s to survive the crashing tide of the British Invasion - among the few were Elvis, Dion, Roy Orbison and Del Shannon - one of the best and most original rockers & pioneers of the early '60s, Del Shannon was also one of the least typical - his 1961 smash hit Runaway continues to have immortal influence on popular music today.
Roy Orbison & Del Shannon had a very strong admiration & respect for each other which culminated in a UK Tour in 1964 giving their audiences what they wanted to hear – all their massive hits together on one unforgettable night of rock 'n' roll
Roy Orbison on Del Shannon: "Del was the reason I decided to tour England. I read about Del’s rave reviews talking about his cover versions of my songs. I thought, 'if Del can sing my songs and get a good reaction, then perhaps I can sing my songs and get a similar response."
Was Del Shannon to become a Traveling Wilbury after the passing of Roy Orbison We shall never know for sure even though the rumors were very strong - Runaway was the only recording by the Traveling Wilbury’s legitimately released that was not written by a Wilbury.
