Roy Orbison Collector Can't Find Sunglasses

Las Vegas, NV -- Anyone can collect Elvis Presley memorabilia but one Dallas-based man is the king as far as Roy Orbison is concerned.

Glen Agritelley is the proud owner of hundreds of records, posters, and guitars belonging to the man who gave the world hits like "Pretty Woman" and "Only The Lonely."

Not only that: He also underwrote an original play about his hero and opened up a wine bar named "Mercy," a phrase associated with Orbison.

But while Agritelley is the man who has everything Orbison, there is a gaping hole in his collection: He doesn't have a single pair of the singer's trademark black sunglasses.

Agritelley has been looking for a pair for 15 years but says it is one of the rarest things on Earth and doubts he'll ever own one.

Still, there is some consolation: Agritelley is friends with Orbison's son and is recording a CD with the legend's former guitarist.
