A Trip Back To The Late 80s With The Traveling Wiburys

George Harrison found himself in Bob Dylan’s studio in 1988 recording the B Side of a single release from his new album.  Luckily for George, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison were hanging around at the same place.  By the end of the session, not only had they nailed the B side, but they decided to form The Traveling Wilburys and so proved that the old guys could still give the late 80s youngsters a run for their money.  A collection of Wilbury songs from the late 80s recently did well in the album charts and we revisit the supergroup by making The Official Traveling Wilburys Site our Website Of The Week this week on The 80s Lunchbox, weekdays at midday on The Cheese

Simply The Best In The 80s

Tina Turner, together with husband Ike, dominated the charts in the late 60s and early 70s.  After a series of setbacks which would ensure most of us would disappear from the limelight, Tina relaunched her career with the hit 1983 album Private Dancer and never looked back.  We remember Tina this week by making a Tina Turner Fan Site our Website Of The Week all this week on The 80s Lunchbox, Monday to Friday from midday on The Cheese.

Peter Gabriel – 80s Music Master

Genesis hit the big time in the early 70s, so it was a surprise to everyone when the lead singer Peter Gabriel quit the band at what seemed like the peak of their careers.  Peter went on to great things throughout the late 70s and right into the 80s with his unique style and this week’s Website Of The Week on The 80s Lunchbox, weekdays from midday on The Cheese, is a fansite devoted to the man himself.  Genesis in the mean time seemed to have done OK for themselves without him !
