Ode to Tom Petty

What an amazing collection of talent. The Traveling Wilburys - Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Tom Petty and Jim Keltner on drums. The band wasn't around long before the first fell, Roy Orbison. This recording, 'End of the Line,' was dedicated to the Big O.

Since then, George Harrison was lost to the world. Now, Tom Petty. End of the Line, again.

Or Orbison's magic, Handle Me With Care.

Six guys, all on the top of the heap, not a damned thing to prove to anyone, get together for the sheer fun of it. They even recorded a tribute cover of  Del Shannon's classic, 'Runaway.'
