The Durge Report

Sybil Durgin "was talking for some time about the travelling wilburys and how the guy from elo must be pissed. he had his short, brief moment playing with genius. his name in lights, with theirs. then roy died and his estate pulled the rights. you can't buy the first record anywhere and the second doesn't hold water at all. then george died and the dream did too. for a while, a sweet while, it was george, tom, bob, roy and jeff. even if people didn't really know who jeff was, it was still jeff. now if people even remember the travelling wilburys at all, its george, tom, bob, roy and that guy from elo. man, is he pissed!"

It's always the most quiet, unknown bloke who beholds the most talent.
Jeff was like the hardening agent in a 2 part epoxy.
Without him the rest of the crew would have been like a big puddle of resin. He was the bonding agent.
Sticky subject really.
Cheers

I named my band "that guy from ELO" because of an inside joke with my brother and friends about that very thing..."now if people even remember the travelling wilburys at all, 'its george, tom, bob, roy and that guy from elo. '"
