Storyline

Spring, 1988: George Harrison asks Jeff Lynne, Roy 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." The album, released in October, goes platinum. The rock video for "End of the Line" is a eulogy for Orbison (1936-1988). Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Crazy Credits

The names of the band members and their characters are reversed, as if their Wilbury name was their correct name. So instead of listing Bob Dylan as Lucky Wilbury the credits list Lucky Wilbury as Bob Dylan. See more »
