How hard would it have been for this blowhard to do a bit of research?
Some of the most egregious errors:
On the birth of the Wilbury's: As Harrison dashed off a song, he got an idea: “I thought, ‘I’m not gonna just sing it myself, I’ve got Roy Orbison standing there — I’m gonna write a bit for Roy to sing.’ And then as it progressed, I thought I might as well push it a bit and get Tom and Bob to sing the bridge."
Where is Jeff?
From Wikipedia: Starting with a meal shared by Harrison, Lynne and Roy Orbison...
The origin of the band’s name is lost in a fog of joints and beer, but it seems to have something to do with the idea of mistakes being fixed later, as “We’ll bury it in the mix.”
No, the origin of the name isn't lost. From Wikipedia again:
"Wilbury" was a slang term first used by Harrison during the recording of Cloud Nine with Jeff Lynne. Referring to recording errors created by some faulty equipment, Harrison jokingly remarked to Lynne, "We'll bury 'em in the mix". Thereafter, they used the term for any small error in performance and the term was used again when the group were together. Harrison suggested "The Trembling Wilburys" as the group's name; instead, Lynne suggested "Traveling", with which the group agreed.
A band with four acoustic guitarists — with four superstar guitarists who had no urgent need to be in a band?
Also, superstar guitarists? What? The only one there you could call so -and it would also be very debatable- is George Harrison. What these guys were is great songwriters, and a great singer in the case of Roy Orbison, but definitely not superstar guitarists.
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
