Here are some people I like

So many words lately…..so I’ll just casually drop this picture here:

George, Jeff, Tom, Roy, Bob

Ladies and gentlemen, the Traveling Wilburys. “We’re the only band in the world with five rhythm guitar players.”

Also, shout out to my favorite Tumblr and the source of this gem, harrisonstories.tumblr.com. It’s basically a compilation of lovely personal anecdotes/quotes about George Harrison, most of which give me the warm fuzzies…some of which make me cry and curse the world for taking George away from us. Some of my recent faves: George helping Ringo write Octopus’s Garden, talking about gardening with an unsuspecting gallery worker, and being a cool dad (part two). My favorite Beatle and Wilbury. <3

The end of the line

I’m sorry, but can we just take a second to recognize how awesome of a band the Traveling Wilburys were?

The band is comprised of the following people:

[Note my nifty YouTube-playlist-embedding skills]
[Also, why are there like 0 videos of Bob Dylan on YouTube? His people must have some crazy copyrights set up.]

That’s right: George Harrison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne thought it’d be cool to just kick it and record some songs together. How awesome would it be to witness them all fooling around on guitars and hanging out like this?

Moral of this post: go listen to the Traveling Wilburys (I’d suggest starting here). And then go listen to each member’s solo stuff because they were all equally awesome. And then go buy tickets to Tom Petty’s next US show (whenever it may be) and invite me along, because I WANT TO SEE HIM SO BAD IT HURTS.
