Muddy Wilbury aka Tom Petty


A few of Tom Petty's friends happened to be the musical legends in supergroup Traveling Wilburys. I decided that Jeff Lynne wanted to be like George Harrison ...Tom Petty wanted to be Bob Dylan ... and those four all wanted to be Roy Orbison.

I listened to Traveling Wilburys Vol 3 a lot. It's not as famous as Full Moon Fever, which has also been unofficially called a Traveling Wilbury's second album. Vol 3 is fun and surprising with contrasting styles when Petty takes lead vocals on Poor House with Hee Haw sounds and then all of a sudden there's ELO backing vocals and some distinctive Harrison guitar.
Yes, the song Inside Out sounds just like sleep-deprived Everly Brothers at 4am ...and yet the most unenthusiastic Beatle-sequel ever, featuring a nasal Tom Petty, hypnotizes me every time

The George, Jeff, and Bob flat harmonizing leads up to a genius reveal
from Tom Petty.  I once had to put this song on repeat 5 times.  The
video is a low-key performance that is a fun watch for Bob Dylan's
grogginess and Tom's suave cool smirks.

The Wilbury's are at it again in a video that doesn't look like it was finished.
In The Wilbury Twist they give a shoutout to Puerto Rico.

You Got Lucky
It took me a while to realize this follow-up to Battlestar Galactica was a Tom Petty video.
