A trio of native Texans, David Bigham, Robert Linville and Ray Rush, The Roses began their career by backing Roy Orbison on his Sun recordings. They met Norman Petty and replaced the Picks as the backing group for Buddy Holly and The Crickets. They can be heard on “Fools Paradise”, Think It Over”, and “It’s So Easy”. In addition to doing backing vocals for well over 100 recordings, they also released 45’s as The Roses. The Roses were inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in December 2000.
