The best band ever, period!

How can anyone deny a band that features George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty? It's just impossible.

I can almost guarantee that they will be inducted the year they are eligible.

supergroup...thats all i can say

I can almost guarantee that they will NEVER be inducted - because 4/5 of them are already in!

A-Killa made my point--that all but Jeff Lynne are already in (and the Electric Light Orchestra is likely to be inducted at some future date), and three of the five as soloists (and Tom Petty might as well be in as a soloist, since his band is NAMED AFTER HIM!)!

They should be inducted, they are one of the very few bands that actually knowhow to paly music, bands now-a-days don't even know how to play instruments. Theses guys deserve it, and I know that 4/5 people were already inducted, so what, they are rock and roll.

If Roy hadn't died when he did & they had released 1 more album that was at least as good as their first I would say 'done deal', they are in.

Supergroup! The Rock Hall eats that stuff up! They will eventually be inducted!

Posted by Michael on Saturday, 04.14.12 @ 13:06pm

The Traveling Wilburys
Posted by Roy on Saturday, 04.20.13 @ 23:58pm
Jeff Lynne YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Posted by Dan on Tuesday, 08.6.13 @ 05:01am
If The Traveling Wilburys are inducted before Electric Light Orchestra, Jeff Lynne would join this group, and it could possibly happen. He could be next.
Posted by Roy on Tuesday, 08.6.13 @ 08:10am
Actually though, Electric Light Orchestra was Jeff Lynne's third band and the Traveling Wilburys was his fourth band, but The Idle Race and The Move have absolutely no chance of being inducted.
Posted by Roy on Tuesday, 08.6.13 @ 12:14pm
People saying they won't make it because of Supergroup status, then The Yardbirds, CSN, Led Zeppelin, Cream, should not be there already. The arguments over multiple inductions is also moot. Eric Clapton has been inducted multiple times. Also, being a Petty and Heartbreakers fan, don't like them being accused of being just another Petty solo effort. They only are named what they are, because of the record executives wanting more of a focus on Tom Petty.

No, the main argument against them is that their work is not hall worthy. The line-up is insignificant to the argument. Their work was enjoyable, but that is all.

Love both albums! Wonderful songwriting, harmonies, and musicianship!
Posted by Michael Norman on Sunday, 12.4.16 @ 15:18pm
Well, it's allllright...Wikipedia reminded me on the RRHOF's page that the Traveling Wilburys is now the only group that has all of its members in from different projects (mostly solo). This is of course with Jeff Lynne now getting in. However, the Wilburys as a group is not in, so the Beatles hold the record with all of their members in individually, in addition to the band being inducted.
