У, круто, спасибо!!! Нечто новое! Обратите внимание, что четверо справа смотрят на одного фотографа (который, судя по ракурсу, и сделал снимок), а трое слева - на другого. Джефф, как всегда, бочком на задний план. И ведь целая фотосессия была, и, судя по всему, толпа народа.
Much portrayed as “the moody one” during his Beatles years, in actual fact George Harrison had an impish sense of humor. “Silly, really, he told me, ” Really silly.” So it is completely imaginable that George ( a former executive producer of Monty Python movies) and former Electric Light Orchestra leader Jeff Lynne would concoct a fictitious band of mythic proportions to amuse themselves while laboring over Harrison’s terrific comeback album in Fall 1987, Cloud Nine. Engaging every rock cliche ever used to describe Harrison’s and Lynne’s long careers, they first named their imaginary band of brothers The Trembling Wilburys. When Lynne subsequently produced the Mystery Girl album for his idol, Roy Orbison, and then Tom Petty‘s first solo album Full Moon Fever after Petty and the Heartbreakers had toured as Bob Dylan‘s band, there was a lot of mojo juice bubbling up to the surface. When they all found themselves at a barbeque in Bob Dylan’s backyard at the same time that George was on deadline to deliver a single “B” side within 48 hours,” It was just too good to miss “, Harrison relates in this week’s classic rock interview,” so I conned them into doing it!”
So the brothers Wilbury, Nelson ( Harrison), Lucky ( Dylan), Lefty ( Roy Orbison ), Otis ( Lynne ), and Charlie T jr (Petty) comprised a Dream Team of rock’s hall of fame super elite, featuring five rhythm guitar players no less, achieving #1 sales success with ” Handle With Care”,”Tweeter and the Monkeyman”,” Rattled”, “Heading for the Light”, the scintillating Roy Orbison masterpiece “You’re Not Alone Anymore”, and the poignant, almost prescient closer “The End of the Line” ( Orbison passed away suddenly not long after this album was released, then Harrison in November 2001). With archival comments from George Harrison, Tom Petty reminds us In the Studio that the Traveling Wilburys Vol 1 “…is not a dream come true, because it’s not the kind of thing you’d even DREAM ! It was just so great. I’m just happy to have had them in my life. I think that a lot of the positive things that have gone on with me are because I’ve had the support of such good friends.” – Redbeard
‘It was like a dream come true’: ELO’s Jeff Lynne on his career-changing introduction to George Harrison
For Jeff Lynne, meeting George Harrison led to a series of rock ‘n’ roll dream jobs, as he produced Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, the Beatles, Paul McCartney and the Traveling Wilburys, an all-star amalgam featuring Bob Dylan.
And it all started with an off-handed comment from Dave Edmunds, for whom Lynne had earlier written and produced “Slipping Away,” a Top 40 hit in 1983.
“We were having dinner, Dave Edmunds and myself,” the Electric Light Orchestra frontman tells David Dye, “and we finished the dinner, and walked our separate ways down the street and suddenly he shouted back — though we’d just been to dinner for the last three hours: ‘By the way, George Harrison asked me to ask you if you like to work with him on his new album.’ By the way! (Laughs.)”
Lynne and Harrison ended up going on vacation to Australia, with the aim of seeing a Grand Prix race, and several songs that would eventually appear on the former Beatle’s 1987 comeback disc Cloud Nine emerged.
“We hit it off really well,” Lynne adds. “Then Tom had heard George’s album that I’d just produced — and he loved it. He actually came over to me one day and said: ‘Do you fancy doing some songs with me?’ It’s because of the album with George, yes, that I got asked by a lot of people to work with them.”
Lynne would end up helming Orbison’s 1988 finale Mystery Girl; Tom Petty’s 1989 effort Full Moon Fever; two John Lennon songs updated with parts from McCartney, Harrison and Ringo Starr for the Anthology series; McCartney’s 1997 release Flaming Pie; Harrison’s 2002 posthumous album Brainwashed; as well as the Wilburys’ 1988 debut Vol. 1 and 1990 followup Vol. 3.
“It was absolutely marvelous,” Lynne says. “When I think about it, it was like a dream come true. You can get what you really wish for, if you try hard enough. That’s what I found.”

Решил разместить сообщение в этой теме,так как аж два участника коллектива поучаствовали в одном событии.Это пафосное для янки мероприятие под названием Супербоул собирает максимальные рейтинги по аудитории и славиться безумно дорогим рекламным временем.Как помните, в свое время, в перерыве игры грандиозное шоу устроил Том с парнями,в этот же раз музыку Джеффа в рекламном ролике использовал Хюндай,а Боба - Крайслер. Причем Боб именно снялся в ролике и текст,который по ходу сюжета он говорит("Let Germany brew your beer. Let Switzerland make your watch. Let Asia assemble your phone. We will build your car." ) уже вызвал оживленную дискусию.

“Could we do it again, start a new version of the Wilburys? Possibly, yes
It had been George Harrison who invited Lynne to join the Traveling Wilburys.
“When George came up the idea of the Wilburys, I was the first person he called,” he says. “We added Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty – quite a band!
“Could we do it again, start a new version of the Wilburys? Possibly, yes. I think if a couple of us wanted to do it, and the right people were interested, then it could work.”
I suggest the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Roger McGuinn and Tom Petty, perhaps John Fogerty. Lynne nods, considering the line-up.
“But, you know, you couldn’t ever recreate the experience,” he adds. “You could never capture the sheer enjoyment we all got from the Wilburys, the fun of it all, the freedom from pressure. Then there was the sheer surprise in what we did. Nobody expected it.
“If we were to do it again, I think we’d have to do something quite different musically.”
It’s the rock and roll equivalent of football’s fantasy league.

Jeff Lynne: “Bob Dylan Wanted To Call Us Roy & The Boys”
Jeff Lynne tells MOJO how an idle chat with George Harrison led to possibly the most super super-group ever: the Traveling Wilburys IT HAD been up to Bob Dylan the Traveling Wilburys would have been simply known as Roy And The Boys, Jeff Lynne has told MOJO.
The ELO leader speaks in the MOJO Interview in our latest issue (December 15 / #265), and in a career-spanning look back he recalls how a late night conversation led to him forming a super-group that included Bob Dylan, who really wanted to be “just one of the lads”.
“I’d been working with George Harrison on Cloud Nine for maybe two months. We would always end the night having a couple beers and [smoking] a thingy, and he said, ‘You know what? Me and you should have a group.’” Lynne tells MOJO’s Bob Mehr.
“And I said, ‘Really, a group? That’d be great. Who would you have in it?’ I thought he was going to say, ‘Oh, Fred Trilby from up the road,’ or whatever, but he didn’t. He said, ‘Bob Dylan.’”
From there the recruitment process escalated quickly. “[After Bob] I said, ‘Well, can we have Roy Orbison as well?’” laughs Lynne. “Once George had said Bob Dylan, I thought, ‘Fuck, the world is my oyster.’ He said, ‘Yeah, of course we can – I love Roy.’”
When the high-end team, including Tom Petty, convened, the Traveling Wilburys sessions proceeded on a surprisingly even footing.
“I think everybody was kind of looking up to Bob. He didn’t take any leadership role, he just wanted to be one of the lads,” explains Lynne. “He actually wanted to call the band Roy And The Boys.”
Get MOJO now for the full interview, including details of the Fab Four’s rivalry with Orbison, not to mention plenty more on Lynne’s journey that has seen him transform from Brumbeat hopeful into Electric Light Orchestra’s sonic visionary and producer of legend.

Опять же благодаря Лене не оскудевает эта тема.Ещё один ролик оттуда же,только там и самого Майка видно.Довольно смешно на него косится Джефф,когда Майк солирует на проигрыше.
ну и лирика
You walk in, half past nine Lookin' like a queen Serving me with papers Calling me obscene Woman I've tried so hard Just to do my best They're gonna put me in the poor house And you'll take all the rest
Up all day, down all night Working on the job Everything I do is wrong I always end up right Woman I try so hard Done all I can do They're gonna put me in the poor house Keep all the best for you.
Ooh, in the poor house Ooh, in the poor house
If a drove a pulpwood truck Would you love me more? Will you bring me diamonds And hang around my door Woman, I've done my best They're ain't much left for me They're gonna put me in the poor house And throw away the key
(In the poor house) Ooh, in the poor house
You walked in, half past nine Lookin' like a queen Serving me with papers Calling me obscene Woman I've tried so hard Just to do my best They're gonna put me in the poor house And you'll take all the rest
The fictitious band, made up of George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, released two studio albums, Vol. 1 and Vol. 3 between 1988 and 1990 and had hits with Handle With Care (1988 / #45 Pop / #2 Mainstream Rock), End of the Line (1989 / #63 Pop / #2 Mainstream Rock) and She's My Baby (1990 / #2 Mainstream Rock).
Now, Concord Bicycle Music has announced that it has entered into a worldwide licensing agreement with The Traveling Wilburys to represent the iconic band's entire catalog, including physical and digital reissues.
For the first time ever, the super group’s music will be available on streaming services, beginning June 3, 2016, along with the re-launch of the hugely successful Traveling Wilburys Collection box set as a limited-edition, uniquely numbered 2-CD 1-DVD box set, standard 2-CD 1-DVD package, deluxe 180-gram vinyl box and for the first time as high-resolution downloads. The release includes both albums (Vol. 1 and Vol. 3), bonus tracks and a DVD featuring footage of the band from the first chord to the final mix.
When originally released in 2007, The Traveling Wilburys Collection debuted at number 1 in the U.K. and six other countries and entered the U.S. charts at number 9, making it the highest chart debut of a box set at the time, and has since been certified Gold. The Wilburys formed in 1988 after Dylan, Harrison, Petty, Lynne and Orbison assembled at Dylan's Malibu, California studio to record a B-side for the Harrison single This Is Love. The resulting song, Handle With Care, was instead released under the Wilburys name, with the artists posing as a band of brothers. George later said, "I liked the song and the way that it turned out with all these people on it so much that I just carried it around in my pocket for ages thinking, 'Well what can I do with this thing?' And the only thing to do I could think of was do another nine. Make an album." The original album release, Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1, achieved great success; after hitting number 3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, the certified double Platinum album earned a Grammy for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group.
Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3, the group's second album, was released in 1990 and dedicated to Lefty (Roy Orbison) Wilbury, who passed away in late 1988 before recording could be completed. She's My Baby and Wilbury Twist became radio hits as the album reached number 11 in the U.S. and was certified Platinum.
Scott Pascucci, CEO Concord Bicycle Music and Sig Sigworth, SVP Catalog Concord Bicycle Music said in a joint statement, "The global success of the Traveling Wilburys reissues in 2007 was one of our career highlights. So, we are very proud to bring the Wilburys' catalog to Concord Bicycle Music and work with these incredible songs and musicians a second time."
