The Traveling Wilburys
In terms of big-name recognition, no supergroup features more talent than the Traveling Wilburys, a quintet that featured four Rock and Roll Hall of Famers — Bob Dylan, the Beatles' George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty — along with Electric Light Orchestra mastermind Jeff Lynne. The five-piece recorded one album together, Vol. 1, and after the passing of Orbison, reconvened as a quartet for 1990's Vol. 3.
