“The Videos”

This is from my personal collection. I acquired this dvd a while back. I don’t know much about it except that it was factory pressed in Japan. I included a scan of the artwork. This appears to be extremely rare footage of The Traveling Wilburys. Enjoy.

Set list

  1. I Won’t Back Down: On March 22 & 23 1989 on a soundstage at Pinewood Studios in Over Health, Backinghampshire, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne and Ringo Starr join Tom Petty to film a promotional video for Petty’s track “I Won’t Back Down”. For the second day’s shot, March 23, panic erupts when the director, David Leland, realizes he still needs Ringo, who had been told not to turn up, for one long shot. Instead, a look-alike from the Beatlemania stage play is drafted in as a replacement, much to everyone’s annoyance.
