Eric Dickerson
One thing I’ve learned is that Brandon Roy is an unbelievable player.

There’s a lot of guys that are able to perform for a short period of time. It could be a week, it could be a month, it could be two months, it could be one season. It’s doing it over and over.

The only music we ever listened to out in the piney woods was Roy Acuff and the Grand Ole Opry. That was the only night of the week I was allowed to lay in the middle of the bed with Mama and Daddy, just long enough to hear Roy Acuff sing; then I had to go back to bed.
George Jones
We used to do four or five films at a time and were not able to experiment with too many things. But, the heart was in the right place and everybody worked passionately. We had wonderful directors like Bimal Roy, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Raj Kapoor.

I’m a hybrid-genre person, which a lot of people find confusing. I grew up listening to American country music and rock n’ roll made between 1955 and 1959. The Everly Brothers and Chuck Berry were my first musical loves and are still what I am most moved by. Roy Orbison came a little bit later.

I grew up as a Roy Rogers fan, of course.
Phil Everly
I loved Roy Acuff with all my heart, and I never dreamed I’d be able to meet him or see him onstage, or especially become good friends with him. For all this to happen, it’s hard to explain what a dream this is when you love something as much as I love traditional country music.
George Jones
I would wear sunglasses all the time if it wasn’t looked down upon in certain situations. I always thought I’d be someone who wore sunglasses like Roy Orbison.

Roy Nelson
You put this face on television, week in, week out, they’d stop me and they’d say, ‘Hey, Roy, how are you doing?’ They’d know who I was, what I was, what I looked like, and what I did – all from seeing and hearing it at the same time on television.

Me calling out Roy Jones is disrespectful.

When I first moved to L.A., I discovered Roy London. I didn’t know anything about the arts, the profession; I had no technique, I knew nothing, I’m fresh from Missouri. I sat in on a few classes, and they just felt a little guru-ish and just didn’t feel right to me. Until I met Roy.
Brad Pitt
I like Roy Orbison's video for 'I Drove All Night' beca

I like Roy Orbison’s video for ‘I Drove All Night’ because it’s so literal. It is just a man driving throughout the night. I like that silliness. To be in a video is a ridiculous thing. It’s almost impossible to do it without any humour.
Richard Ayoade
When Mouni Roy became Naagin’ or even Adaa Khan, Surbhi Jyoti, everybody did it differently, so I want to do it my way as well.
Jasmin Bhasin
The scariest thing about ‘Roy’ was that it was sync sound. So, I had to worry about my diction all the more along with my emotions, acting, and my dialogues. That was very challenging because it pushed me to work on my Hindi, and in a good way.
Jacqueline Fernandez
I’ve never seen a truly great fighter get knocked onto the ropes unconscious… knocked out cold before… and I saw Roy Jones get knocked out twice in a row.
Jim Lampley
Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Dale Evans – these people are giants, legends; their names are household words. Of course, so’s Jell-O.
Norm Crosby
During the Sir Alex Ferguson years, you would see all those great players – Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Jaap Stam, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo, to name just a few – and you’d quickly realise why Old Trafford had an aura like nowhere else.
Peter Crouch
But Roy Rockwood, it was science fiction for the sake of science fiction.

Jonathan Scott
I did the X-Men, and I plotted the stories, and Roy Thomas dialogued them. And that first set of comic books that I did are the plot that the first X-Men movie was taken from, where Magneto invents a machine that turns regular humans into mutants. That’s my idea.
Neal Adams
As a kid, I loved any guitarists, whether it was Elvis Presley, Lonnie Donegan, Chuck Berry or even the cowboy guitarists like Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. The image of the guitar appealed to me.

Sturgill Simpson
My dreams are to unify the world light-heavyweight titles like Roy Jones did and then at cruiserweight before then possibly the heavyweight division.
Anthony Yarde
Roy Hodgson is a fantastic coach. I first knew him when I was playing in Switzerland and he was national team coach. It was under him that Switzerland revolutionised their player formation system.
Joachim Low
I’m the last senior executive who was hired by Roy Vagelos. It’s an honor, but it also imposes upon me an obligation not only to think about his legacy but also about this company’s legacy.
Kenneth Frazier
You are innocent until proven guilty. And if folks have come forward, whether it is judge Roy Moore or whether it is anyone else, and they have evidence to convict someone of a crime, then they should go through the legal process and do so.
Matt Rosendale
Roy Acuff was a big hero for me, and I was so sad when he passed. It’s hard as you get older to lose your friends and family.
George Jones
Dontel Benjamin on ‘Eastbound’ is a loud-mouth, braggadocios, crazy man, while Roy on ‘Rake’ is a very deliberate, thoughtful man, and he doesn’t scream a lot.
Omar Dorsey
I started as a child artist, and not as a heroine, as most would think. I was performing on stage once when the late Bimal Roy saw me and asked me if I would work in films. I was too tiny. Without realising, I just said yes.
Asha Parekh
I like him as a guy, but I’m going to knock him out – Roy Jones is just a prop in a fairytale ending to a great career for me.
Joe Calzaghe
I thought I’d gone to heaven, because I grew up watching Roy and Gene Autry.
Lee Majors
I was a teenage idol, but not the one that the girls would put up on their walls, like Fabian and Frankie Avalon. I was more cerebral, like a Roy Orbison or a Buddy Holly. I was one of the few who could write songs.
Neil Sedaka
I have two moods. One is Roy, rollicking Roy, the wild ride of a mood. And Pam, sediment Pam, who stands on the shore and sobs… Sometimes the tide is in, sometimes it’s out.

Black women voted against Roy Moore not because they necessarily wanted the other guy; they voted against Roy Moore because they knew that would be better for the people of Alabama and, to be frank, better for the rest of the country.
Patrisse Cullors
Roy Williams has been a great coach every game since the beginning at Kansas.
Jim Boeheim
'Rob Roy' was a great adaptation. It was a lot better t

‘Rob Roy’ was a great adaptation. It was a lot better than ‘Braveheart.’
Diana Gabaldon
Bimal Roy never kept comedy out of the story line.
‘An Obedient Father’ is perhaps the novel that, some might say, Arundhati Roy had wanted to write when she wrote ‘The God of Small Things.’
Amitava Kumar
George Roy Hill, Redford, and I have been looking for a script to do together for 13 years. We haven’t been able to find one that we liked enough for the three of us to be in it together.
Paul Newman
One of my favorite expressions ever uttered by a player is Roy Campanella’s line about how, in order to be a major-league player, you have to have a lot of little boy in you.
Vin Scully
Roy Keane and Paul Scholes were unbelievable players. You cannot compare yourself to them. It is impossible. Scholes especially, I like him a lot, and I have a lot of respect for what he did for United.
Bastian Schweinsteiger
I was a pretty good imitator of Roy Acuff, but then I found out they already had a Roy Acuff, so I started singin’ like myself.
Hank Williams
Every single player has to take responsibility for what they do. Look at the Manchester United team that won the Champions League in 2008, they didn’t have a ‘leader’ like Roy Keane any more.
Philipp Lahm
Roy, the guy I play in ‘The Grifters,’ is a guy who had a very bleak life. His mother had him at 13, and then when she was 17 or 18 and he was 4 or 5, they were trapped in a small Texas town somewhere, and she was ready to do anything to get out.
John Cusack
I’m a little like Roy Keane. Mentally I’m very strong. I’m very hungry. I’m very dedicated. You can’t throw me off my stride. That’s how I break people. I just don’t care what they do. They can throw 180, 180 and 180 again and I’m like, ‘so what?’ They’ve got to keep it up to beat me.
Phil Taylor
Roy Jones is different. I like the style and the movement.
Anderson Silva
I love the song ‘Into the Night.’ It’s Roy Orbison meets David Lynch meets Iggy Pop on amphetamines. It has a punk edge that is not HIM, per se. It is super melodic and super ’60s, and that is very new to me and it is a sense of achievement to me.
Ville Valo
When I was living in the projects, I had a mop stick for my horse. I wanted to be Gene Autry or Roy Rogers, so I would ride my mop through the projects.
Aaron Neville
As much as I loved Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Junior Gilliam, and Don Newcombe, I loved watching Willie Mays play more than all of them combined, even if he played for the ‘bad guys!’
Cheech Marin
I’ve got to come out and be aggressive. I’ve got to be a different Roy Hibbert than I’ve been.
Roy Hibbert
In the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, noted actors like Iftekhar used to get mainly police officer roles, Bindu ji would do a negative role, and Nirupama Roy was the on-screen mother. All this had its own charm. There was a fixed casting.
Satish Kaushik
Saw the best boxer, pound for pound: Roy Jones. Not a lot of hype, though.
Larry Johnson
Although the French appellation system has its roots in the 1923 system created in Chateauneuf-du-Pape by Baron Le Roy, proprietor of the renowned Chateau Fortia, Chateauneuf-du-Pape never developed a reputation for quality or achieved the prestige enjoyed by such regions as Burgundy and Bordeaux.
Robert M. Parker, Jr.
