In another thread I made a joking reference to Traveling Wilburys... and it dawned on me.

Queen+Paul Rodgers are a blues/folk/classic rock supergroup. Traveling Wilburys were a blues/folk/classic rock supergroup.

Traveling Wilburys released their first album in 1988. Queen+Paul Rodgers released their first album in 2008.

Traveling Wilburys covered Runaway but only released it as a bonus. And now... Queen+Paul Rodgers covered Runaway but only released it as a bonus.

History has a way of repeating itself.

argh ...

the wilburys were long time gone, when george died. roy wasn't substituted, although there were rumours regarding del shannon taking his place - but sadly he decided to die, too. hence the reason for recording runaway.

come on guys, this was only eighteen years ago!

Call Me is very Wilburys. I love the Wiblurys. They are my favorite supergroup of all-time except for QPR, maybe. I still like the Wilbury's overall contribution more, and I think they have the better Runaway.

The first album of The Traveling Wilburies was recorded in summer 1988. It was very good and won a Grammy when suddenly Roy Orbison died in December 1988. The second album, less successful, was put out in 1990.
The band is considered to have been a super group, that`s right.

Here's an idea for a fun thread - whose cover of Runaway is the best! :D I can see Gary Allan fans cursing at The Misfits fans... ah, the Internet :D

EDIT: Oh, I realized the tone of this came across as attacking the original poster - not my intention! I'm glad the Wilburys are getting the respect they deserve!

I reckon there is something about Surfs Up that reminds me of a Tom Petty song. Not sure which one perhaps Runnin' Down a Dream. There is some uh uhing that reminds me of it.
