Spring is here, soon you can walk around without shoes and socks.
Is there a better way to salute this than to

George Harrison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne,
Roy Orbison, they all make a great job, but the

The pop formula suits him better than he would ever admit.
However, I've heard rumours of a
new Traveling Wilburys album.
So please, Bob, I would love to be proven wrong!
