The best supergroup. A lesson in superstars sharing the spotlight, having fun and bringing out the best in each other. Usually when big stars get together on a project it becomes a competition of who’s awesomer and more famous. The Traveling Wilburys were all about being awesome together. It was a buddy project. Although it was probably hard to imagine, before they came along, that Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Roy Orbison would ever be trading vocals. With their wildly disparate styles, it’s amazing how great they sound together. And make no mistake, it’s a showcase for those three legends – Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne are just sidemen, and though they both made good contributions to The Wilburys, they must have known they were outclassed. They must have felt very honored. But of course, it wasn’t about who had the biggest legend.
