This has inspired by Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison, as solo performers, ELO and as well as the Traveling Wilburys, My sings in tune, not brilliantly but what you going to expect from me anyway. This was shown to Mr lynne as a instrumental and we got approval, which is amazing as he's like a complete god of musical industry during the 70's and 80's. This was created using outboard instruments (tyros, motif and Oasys) and was recorded in on a Akai reel, converted to digital, reinforced and you know the rest, I hope you enjoy our track.

finalized in Wavelab.

What can I say, I came as soon as you dropped me our message, I see Lomans been here already with his divine wisdom. Your vox could improve slightly, from that "Vocal" song that you posted earlier, where your vocals were absolutely perfect. This song ain't bad at all! You got my download! I'm loving that piano line and the progression is very good.

It genuinely nice to get approval from anyone that has made it in the industry and when you sent that letter to me I was absolutely gobsmacked, I thought he wouldn't even give you the time of the day. I don't think on anyone on NG is going to give a tit who Nelson Wilbury is let alone the rest of this amazing super group is, and was. Poor uncle roy, too soon in my opinion, but I guess it was fate. I imagine this based on the work from Vol.1, but I will say even though your vocal is a little bit muffled at times its not bad!

We need to get you in with a decent microphone, and redo this as its pretty true to the Wilburys maybe without acoustic guitars, which I know you don't play. I'll get back to you as what we can do!

I composed this tune about six months ago and its one of the demanding instrumentals which I've done, I don't think my vocal was as good as it should have been, but it could be down to equipment, I never thought the Rode's cheapy microphone was really up to my belting vocals, I did get away from it but yes it wasn't the cleanest.

But I got that reply back last month and I'm astounded, that exactly what you said. I thought I wouldn't get anything back, but I did and it was hand written and had his signature and everything. I couldn't have done this with out Daniel, your supports been absolutely amazing as well!

I think the demographic which is NG will never have heard who the Wilburys are and no I don't particularly care if no one gives a tot about it, I just wanted people to know what I'm upto, thats all.

Roy was taken many years to early and he probably seen a doctor about aliments first before he dropped dead, but like people he was petrified of the medical system which he said quite a few times in his short life. But his vocals absolutely chilling and his range is amazing. Nov 88' wasn't it, that the year I was born. So sad!

I'd love to redo my vocal in your vocal booth but its a question of time and logistics, I don't know when this will be, it could be a while.
