1989 Best Rock Performance (Harrison, Orbison, Dylan, Petty, Lynne, Keltner) – 32nd Annual GRAMMY Awards

Traveling Wilburys grammy

1989.  32nd Annual GRAMMY Awards – Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal (Harrison, Orbison, Dylan, Petty, Lynne, Keltner)


Lucky Wilbury and his brothers Nelson, Otis, Lefty, and Charlie T. Jr. — or, as we had come to know them, Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty — proved the sum-of-the-parts adage true with this unprecedented collaboration. There was no supergroup ego clash here, but rather five iconic artists feeding off each other and feeding each other choice lines born out of immense mutual respect. Often as not each wrote in one of the others’ style, walking the fine line of loving parody and paying homage. Dylan’s signature wordplay and vocal styles seemed to be particular favorites of his “brothers.” And for all the novelty winks of the pseudonyms and conceits, many of the songs on Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 stand with their makers’ best, in particular  “Handle With Care,” primarily written by Harrison, but taken to pop heaven by the bridges spotlighting Orbison, who died of a heart attack just two months after the album’s release.
