In my experience, no amount of talent can replace vision and solidarity as a group, neither of which the TW displayed very well, that being said, they were pretty damned good.

I have a bootlegged copy of the TWs and John Fogerty, it kicks ass

The second one (Volume 3) has it's moments too. Dylan's vocals on If You Belonged to Me are ace.

I think Volume 3 has the best songs: You took my breath away, Poor house, my baby are my fav.

Considering it was nothing but a fun little side project for these guys, it's amazing just how good most of the music is. I've only heard Volume 1, and only keep about five of the songs on my iPod (the best ones), but it's all pretty good, mixed in with some absolutely outstanding stuff.

I love playing End of the Line Great band/collection of musicians. I recently bought the rereleased albums, with DVD included; great little documentary, would advise all to see it!

They used to say that they didn't care about their albums' succes, but after all they won the platinum disc for the volume 1. I almost cry when I saw the True Story... on the part when they're recording the "End of the Line" video without Roy Orbison, and they put his guitar on the chair. In the video when I see that part I feel.....you know.....aawwww!

handle with care is a great song, though i would have prefered it more if harrison sang all the parts, i think petty and dylan's part "everybody's got somebody to lean on" (or whatever they say) just sounds so off for some reason.

good group though.

They were pretty good. Considering all of the great people that were in the band they could have done much better though. I still think that they were pretty great though.

Well, they really didn't put too much effort into it. It was just a side project, a nice little diversion. Take it from that perspective, and it's quite amazing stuff.

exactly. if they had actually put a lot of time and effort into this band, it would have been catastrophic to human society. it's likely their songs would have been so damn good that entire civilizations would fade into extinction solely because everybody spent all of their time and money on TW albums and memorabilia and no longer had a desire for anything else, including sexual reproduction. humans would have been destroyed forever. therefore, the CIA saw to it that the band kept it leisurely and effortless.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

But, that means......the CIA killed Roy Orbison!!

Yeah it is pretty sad. kinda wierd though, cause that part is where the lights start flickering and the chair starts rocking with his guitar in it. sad and creepy. Roy seemed like a good guy.

Well, I won't deny that awesome theory about the end of the humans. They were old-rock-pioneers, so they didn't have a single reason to put effort, but they were good friends and the succes was not a matter of life and death

Get the fuck out of the Classic Rock forum.

I have a Wilburys CD somewhere around here. I should give it another listen, it's been a while.
How to achieve Frank Zappa's guitar tone:

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.

Neil Young was NOT in the Wilburys.


That being said, I think the most remarkable feat of the band is being able to encompass both a Beatle and Dylan, arguably the two greatest rock musicians in history. The others are just icing on the cake.

I own all of The Traveling Wilburry's albums, and though I enjoy them, I honestly think that the band never lived up to the potential that the names of its members gave it.

Still a good band, of course, but far from the most underrated.

I love the Traveling Wilburys. Every time I hear one of their songs I get the feeling that these people were having a ton of fun doing this, and would've played together even if they didn't sell a single record.

My step-dad had Vol. 1 and 3 on casette and introduced them to me when I started getting into the Beatles and Dylan. The fact that they wrote such good music while just having fun is pretty inspiring.

Since Bob Dylan and Tom Petty are the greatest things to ever happen to music I must agree. Although Cream had some god damn **** load of talent too.
