The iPod gods smiled upon me yesterday when this popped up during a little Sunday shuffle.  It has become my anthem for the week, as I prepare to leave Newsweek Thursday and strike out on my own for awhile.  It’s a little scary stepping away from the security of a steady job, but like the Wilburys say:

Well It’s alright, riding around in the breeze
Well it’s alright, if you live the life you please.

How are the Travelling Wilburys not a bigger deal? Come on they had
George Harrison from The freaking Beatles
Roy Orbison who was an astounding singer and songwriter
Jeff Lynne from ELO
Bob Dylan, I dont even need to say more
Tom Petty - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
and Jim Keltner. “Who’s Jim Keltner?” you ask… only an amazing drummer who has worked with Elvis, Crosby Still Nash & Young, The Plastic Ono Band, Steve Miller Band and a ton of others.
Seriously they were like the dream team of bands
