Acclaimed songwriter, record producer, music publisher and label executive Bob Montgomery has died.
A fellow Texan, Montgomery was a close friend of Buddy Holly and the two performed together as “Buddy and Bob.” Holly and Texas aren’t the only Orbison connections, though. Montgomery wrote not one, but two of the songs on Roy Orbison’s debut album at MGM- There is Only One Roy Orbison. Those songs are “Two of a Kind” (co-written with Earl Sinks) and “Big As I Can Dream.”
Rest in peace Bob Montgomery
