The Traveling Wilburys

The Traveling Wilburys

In 1970 Jeff Lynne left the band in order to join The Move, then a very popular and successful band in Britain, accepting Roy Wood’s second invitation, who promised his old friend Lynne to launch a new project, called The Electric Light Orchestra, which had been on his mind for a couple of years.

Jeffrey “Jeff” Lynne was born on 30th December 1947 in Birmingham, UK. He formed an interest in music while still at school, influenced by artists such as Del Shannon, whose concert at the Birmingham Town Hall made a lasting impression on young Jeff and was to change his whole future, Roy Orbison and, of course The Beatles.

The Traveling Wilburys BACKGROUND

The Traveling Wilburys was not a carefully planned band, not formed from deep premeditation. Rather, the band was created in a casual blending of genuine friends one ordinary afternoon, which turned out to be anything but ordinary.

In trying to explain how the Wilburys originally came together, George Harrison once said, “The thing about the Wilburys for me is—if we’d tried to plan it, or if anybody had said, let’s form this band and get these people in it—it would never happen, it’s impossible. It happened completely, just by magic, just by circumstance. Maybe there was a full moon that night or something like that. It was quite a magical little thing really.”

(Los Angeles, DATE, 2007) – Nearly twenty years after the creation of the band, and over a decade since the music was last available to fans, the music of The Traveling Wilburys was reissued in June worldwide as The Traveling Wilburys Collection. The reissue debuted at #1 in 5 countries globally, was at #9 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 charts, and was the #1 Digital Download in its first week of release. The release remains in the Top 3 on the UK charts after six weeks. The collection has gone Platinum in 5 countries and Gold in two countries and is still maintaining strong chart positions around the globe. The U.S. Deluxe Edition package sold out within minutes of release and Rhino Entertainment announced today, that due to this overwhelming demand and fan requests, a second edition of Deluxe Editions will be made available again on November 20, 2007.

Also, filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich (The Last Picture Show, Mask) has begun shooting a documentary about the Heartbreakers’ history. “We’ve given him access that we’ve never given anybody,” says Petty. Bogdanovich will interview Petty at length and hopes to talk with Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks and members of Petty’s family.

Petty exudes genuine pride as he debuts for Rolling Stone nine of the songs slated for Highway Companion, including “Square One” and “Turn This Car Around.” He began recording the album last year with Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and fellow Traveling Wilbury Jeff Lynne. Each contributes guitar parts, Lynne plays keys and a Hofner bass, Campbell plays a hefty amount of slide guitar (”He’s never been better,” says Petty) and, for the first time on record, Petty plays drums. Though they all but finished recording in February, Petty says, “The only thing keeping me from wrapping things up is just going, ‘Well, I wonder if there’s one more in me?’”

In a career that has now reached its thirtieth year, Tom Petty has never made a bad album. Some flirt with greatness, others simply deliver the goods (his last release, 2002’s The Last DJ, was actually one of his weaker efforts, weighed down by its grouchy theme), but the man’s consistency is pretty astounding. Highway Companion not only keeps his winning streak intact, it even rates above average by these standards.

Tom Petty New Album and Tour

December 23rd, 2007

In 1976, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers released their debut album, and this summer Petty plans to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary in grand style. He and the Heartbreakers will hit the road in June on a tour that Petty says might be the band’s last major summer outing; there’s an ambitious documentary in the works; and Petty is finishing Highway Companion, a solo album tentatively due on Rick Rubin’s American Recordings label this summer.

Here are just a few of the fun facts to be picked up from the innersleeve credits on Out of the Blue, ELO’s double-LP set: Jeff Lynne’s Marshall amps are custom-made by Tony Frank; all ELO road cases are made by Anvil; no less than fourteen special-effects mechanisms were utilized in the creation of this work; engineer Mack “slaved over a hot mixer for 1127 hours.” Here’s my favorite, though: Bev Bevan uses Slingerland “Bev Bevan” drumsticks. One could say that ELO is more than a bit smitten with itself.
One could say it, and one would be right, though self-absorption is not any grounds for attacking a rock band; it’s almost impossible to think of a band or an artist that isn’t mainly ego.

Where is Jeff Lynne these days?

December 23rd, 2007

Does anyone know where Jeff Lynne is these days? The new Traveling Wilburys releases made me think that he would have popped up to do some promo work.

Forget bootlegs. Forget, for the moment, bonus discs and DVD extras. What if the best Bob Dylan songs you’ve never heard were simply tucked away on below-the-radar discs with “nice price” stickers on them, unrescued by Biograph, Greatest Hits or The Bootleg Series, or by any movie soundtrack (recall how “The Man in Me” blindsided you in The Big Lebowski?).

It could have been better, but it’s not all that bad, really, when it comes down to it. The only problem is the album is just not that memorable. Then again, ELO probably wasn’t really all that memorable in the first place, but they were almost always nice to listen to, and the Jeff Lynne album, Armchair Theatre, seems like Jeff Lynne, contrary to expectations, is the real survivor of the Move — an English rock band that did some highly regarded material (”Fire Brigade” springs to mind as does “Flowers in the Rain”) and then did a side project called the Electric Light Orchestra (a reference to the BBC’s Light Program, featuring, of course, the BBC Light Orchestra.
