I think they're brilliant I mean they are the ultimate supergroup you have George Harrison the best Beatle in my opinion Jeff Lynne from ELO Bob Dylan Roy Orbison and Tom Petty Handle With Care is an excellent song

My dad made me listen to them... I love their music, now! :O

My favourites are Handle With Care, Dirty World, Last Night, Congratulations, Margarita... They're all really good. No bad songs in their albums; they're all listenable.

Recently they released a 2 CD/1 DVD package which I love. The DVD shows how they recorded the first album with Roy Orbison who died very soon after that.

I would not call them the "ultimate supergroup", they are just a group of fantastic and decent musicians who obviously enjoyed doing this music. They recorded some real great songs.

Great teaming of musicians there, no doubt...all happened kind of by accident. Shame that Roy passed on when he did, as that record really sparked a revival for him.

One of the worst craps I have ever heard in my life.

I can't believe Jeff Lynne and George Harrison got involved in the writting and recording of such primitive music. It's embarrasing.

I suppose you prefer Spandau Ballet?

Hey, it's all meant for fun, anyway. Obviously *they* didn't take themselves seriously!

I love "The Wilbury Twist." Pure silliness.

I prefer something that DOESN'T SUCK. Or at least not as much as the TW do.

Fuck me. How'd Jeff Lynne get a jersey anyway? What a prick. He has been wearing those glasses for the last...forever.

I like George though. George is good.

Greatness. Pure greatness.

Obviously Horsito is being sarcastic, that is if he really is a guitar player. Anybody that plays, would "get" the Wilburys.

It took way too long for them to release that box. I've completely worn out my Vol 2 tape.

If you liked the Wilburys, check out Tom Petty's Great Wide Open CD.

I love "End of the line", and the group is nice, although there has to be no Bob Dylan there xD

Wow. You must have really hated it, to have not at least given it to someone else...(who could then possibly have shared your point of view?) :P

I'm just funnin' ya.

I don't know, some of the Beatles and ELO stuff is pretty primitive by these standards. Some really GOOD stuff too. Do 'Evil Woman' and 'Here Comes the Sun' ring any bells?

Here Comes the Sun rings the bell of being a great song with some clever cool rhythm sections that aren't so noticeable.

Evil Woman is a song that was written in 5 minutes, as Jeff himself stated (a simple song but well performed). Nevertheless, the rest of the disc is nothing less than great. Songs such s Fire On High, Waterfall and Nightrider are amazing works. Let alone albums like Eldordo, Out of the Blue and A New World Record.

Evil Woman at least is catchy.


The Travelling Shits, on the other hand, feature the incredibly horrible singer that Bob Dylan is, plus the stupid cunt of Tom Petty... a idiot-ized Jeff Lynne, poor Roy and George (whose participation on this lame project I don't know how the hell took place). Plus primitive music, with the most shitty arrangements (if there are any) you could ever imagine.

Didn't the Wilburys start off as something that was going to be on a George Harrison single?
