The Traveling Wilburys (sometimes shortened to the Wilburys) were an Anglo-American supergroup consisting of George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, accompanied by drummer Jim Keltner. The band recorded two albums between 1988–1990, although Roy Orbison died before the second album was recorded.
"Wilburys" was a slang term first used by Harrison during the recording of Cloud Nine with Jeff Lynne; Harrison, referring to recording errors created by some faulty equipment, jokingly remarked to Lynne, "We'll bury 'em in the mix". Thereafter, they used the term for any small error in performance and the term was used again when the entire supergroup was together. Harrison suggested "The Trembling Wilburys" as the group's name; instead, Lynne suggested "Traveling", with which the group agreed.
