Who did the Wilburys look like?

Brother Nelson (later known as Spike) bore a striking resemblance to Goerge Harrison. Otis (later known as Clayton) could easily pass for Jeff Lynne. Lefty looked like and sounded like the "Big O" (Roy Orbison). Charlie T. Jnr. (a.k.a Muddy) was a spitting image of Tom Petty. And Lucky (a.k.a. Boo) may have been Bob Dylan's twin.

Who were the Traveling Wilburys?

Not much is known about the origin of the Wilburys, but according to Michael Palin, the legend goes that "the original Wilburys were a stationary people who, realizing that their civilization could not stand still for ever, began to go for short walks - not the 'traveling' as we now know it, but certainly as far as the corner and back."
