Song of the Day: Traveling Wilburys, “Not Alone Anymore”

Legendary singer-songwriter-guitarist Roy Orbison was born on this date in 1936. He had a string of hit records on Sun and Monument records in the ’50’s and ’60’s, but a string of personal tragedies in the mid-’60’s put his career on hold in the late ’60’s and ’70’s. He had a career revival in the ’80’s after Don McLean covered his "Crying" in 1981. After working with ELO’s Jeff Lynne, who produced his 1987 album In Dreams, he was invited to join with Lynne, George Harrison (who remembered him from the early ’60’s touring days), Bob Dylan, and Tom Petty, who formed the Traveling Wilburys. "Not Alone Anymore" was his major contribution to The Wilburys’ first album.

  1. I loved this team and I still am so sad at the death of Roy Orbison who had such a tragic life, losing his wife and then his children. Funny that only 2 of the Wilbury’s are left


      1. It was fun and the song… that solo was so out of character… I really liked was If You Belonged To Me… but no it wasn’t as good but still a lot of fun

  2. I haven’t thought of the Travelling Wilbury’s in years, but you’ve reminded me how much I like their music. Thanks, John.
