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.

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
