Del Shannon was one of the handful of American Rock 'n' Rollers of the 1960s to survive the crashing tide of the British Invasion. 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 & 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.
