Traveling Wilburys!

Filed under: music — pandaberry @ 5:50 am

So I’m packing up my place, getting ready to move to
a new Berryland and as I go through all of my odd belongings
and putting them into weird groups there’s only one band I can be
listening to-The Traveling Wilburys. If you’ve never had the pleasure
please oh please let me introduce you to the best spontaneous rock band
ever put together.

Made from unbelievable music royalty we have George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.
How did these people get together?? Basically George Harrison needed to write a b-side
for a single he was putting out, went to dinner with Jeff and Roy and asked if they would
help. They said cool, they asked Bob Dylan if they could use his studio and he said cool.
Well George’s guitar was at Tom Petty’s house so Tom tagged along.They all went into the studio and totally
goofed around and accidentally wrote one of the cutest songs ever.

And with that the Wilbury’s were born. You can get the lovely story in their own words here at their website!

They made two albums Vol 1 & Vol 3 and they’re both so much fun. You can totally feel how
much fun they had just jamming together. I just discovered all of their videos-they’re as random
and cute as this band. You can see them at travelingwilburys.com. Make sure you check out End of the Line,
Roy Orbison had died before they made the video so when it’s his turn to sing they have a rocking
chair moving with his guitar and picture, totally tear worthy and sweet.

So back to packing and having a blast with Otis, Nelson, Lucky, Charlie T. Jr and Lefty Wilbury.
