    These guys did ok. Good bit o' talent lurking 'round.

    Orbison, Lynne, Petty, Dylan, Harrison...



    I think some of George's best work was with these guys. And Jeff Lynne's sound is all over the tunes!

    I bought that album. Bob owes me my money back. The rest of it pretty good.

    It's simple, sweet feeling pop from days of old. A salve for the crap of what's going around in today's world.

    Here's something funny about the Willburys...3 of the 4 members (Harrison,Petty, Dylan) are 3 of the only artists whose concerts I walked out on.

    Funny... I have no crappy concerts by any of them to reflect on. But I can understand how each of them might have put on a crappy live performance.

    I just enjoy their recorded work together.

    George discusses how the whole Wilbury's thing came about. Very interesting interview.

    Lotta heart is right. George Harrison, especially, was a force - a force of spiritual heart. Coming up on twenty years since he passed, at the young age of 58.

    He had transformed from a shy, poor Liverpool lad, guitarist, to a man with a rich and deep spiritual soul... and a wonderful musical spirit.

    I've never been inspired by his guitar playing, thus I don't view him much as a "great" guitarist. Nor as a great song writer, but more as an inspirational individual.

    The combined force of Orbison, Lynne, Harrison, Dylan, and Petty was a fine, fleeting thing. Only Lynne and Dylan are still alive.

    Of them all... Jeff Lynne gets most of my respect as an overall musician, composer, arranger, producer.

    And Roy Orbison, for that voice.

    Harrison was a force of personality, I suppose, an inspiring person, and not a bad singer/songwriter. Having been a Beatle certainly added to his weighty presence.

    Dylan has most certainly been a brilliant and master lyricist - not that much as a musician, in my view.

    Petty put out some good stuff, but not a massive talent, in my view.

    Together, they were a special mix - I can imagine it was fun for them to get together and mix it all up as a group.
