The Traveling Wilburys supergroup was formed in 1988 by accident as George Harrison attempted to make a new solo album, after enlisting the production talent of Jeff Lynne. At short notice, only Bob Dylan's garage was available to rehearse in, and over the next few days Tom Petty and Roy Orbison dropped by and joined in. This wonderful potpourri of stars re-introduced 'having a good time' to their vocabulary and the result was not a Harrison solo but the superb debut from the Traveling Wilburys. The outing proved to be a major success, bringing out the best of each artist; in particular, this was a marvellous swan song for Roy Orbison who tragically died soon afterwards. The deliberately erroneously titled Volume 3 was released in 1990 and received similar plaudits. The members then came under pressure to tour but were able to resist, leaving open the possibility of future collaboration if mutually convenient at some point. This has to be the climate in which the last of the great supergroups can survive.
