The Traveling Wilburys

Archive for the ‘Bob Dylan’ category

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 […]

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 […]

Bob Dylan - Traveling Wilburys

December 23rd, 2007

Is it just me or does Bob Dylan  always seem really cranky and upset when ever he is on video. The guy doesnt know how to smile or something?
A little smile from a Traveling Wilbury goes a long way Bobby Boy!

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 […]

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 […]

Were The Traveling Wilburys a short-lived gimmick or a legitimate musical force? It’s terribly easy to be cynical and dismiss the Wilburys as the former. After all, how many times have we seen an all-star group of musicians come together for a few easy hits? The “fake” all too often flows from such gatherings in […]

Traveling Wilburys The Band

October 13th, 2007

The Traveling Wilburys were a short-lived country rock group of the late 1980s who, although they made some great music, would be little more than a footnote in music history if it wasn’t for the individual fame of each member.
Respected stars Tom Petty of the Heartbreakers and Jeff Lynne of ELO and the Move were […]

Almost 20 years after they formed and with two band members dead, super group The Traveling Wilburys have scored their first UK number one album.
Made up of legendary musicians George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, The Traveling Wilburys never made it past number 14 on the album charts when […]

For audiophiles, music heads and casual fans alike the storied conception of the Traveling Wilburys is fascinating. They have come to be known as an example of how restraint and casualness as opposed to verbosity and excess can be the best way to utilise the talent pool of a super group. This is made abundantly […]

Traveling Wilburys Tracklisting

September 27th, 2007

Find out the Traveling Wilburys Collection Tracklisting.

THE Traveling Wilburys – Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne – happened by accident when Harrison was asked for a B-side. When he came back with Handle With Care featuring the all-star cast, the label knew they had a monster on their hands.Even more miraculously, the first album, Vol 1, has […]

Traveling Wilburys Volume 1 Review

September 27th, 2007

This is the worst review ever produced, and to top it off, it was courtesy of Rollingstone. Can you believe this bad review? Lies I tell you!
Two of the original five Wilburys have moseyed on, mortality-wise: George Harrison and Roy Orbison. But what really sounds boneyard-bound on these reissues is Jeff Lynne’s production. In the […]

If it had taken place during the 1970s, the teaming of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and ELO mastermind Jeff Lynne would have towered over supergroups like Blind Faith and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. But in 1988, when Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1 appeared, Dylan was perceived as being in decline, Harrison […]

The Traveling Wilburys Collection

September 27th, 2007

It’s a story so far-fetched it’s almost unimaginable. George Harrison, needing a B-side for a song off 1987’s Cloud Nine, enlisted the help of Jeff Lynne, who helped produce the album. Lynne, as it turns out, was producing an album for Roy Orbison, and the two legends agreed to lend Harrison a hand. […]

After being out of print for more than a decade, the two studio albums from all-star band the Traveling Wilburys will return to the marketplace in a variety of formats June 12 via Wilbury Records/Rhino, has learned.
