The True Story of the Traveling Wilburys

In The True Story of the Traveling Wilburys, Willy Smax tells the fascinating story of the short-lived 1980s supergroup, The Traveling Wilburys. 

Spring, 1988: George Harrison asked Jeff LynneRoy Orbison, and Tom Petty to spend a day in the studio at Bob Dylan's L.A. house. The result is "Handle With Care." He liked the process so much that the five of them, plus Jim Keltner, spend a week in May at Dave Stewart's house, where they write and record a song a day to produce an album. We watch the creative process: group efforts ("Dirty World" is a found poem) and individual ones (Dylan's lyrics for "Congratulations"). Petty calls them "a bunch of friends who happened to be really good at making music."  

If you like music, you'll love this short documentary.
