Late Beatle George Harrison got down on his knees and begged Roy Orbison to join THE TRAVELING WILBURYS. Harrison and Jeff Lynne started the supergroup in the late 1980s and ended up inviting Orbison, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty to join. Orbison's widow Barbara recalls the moment Harrison offered the Oh, Pretty Woman hitmaker the chance to join the group after a concert. She says, "When Roy came off-stage, George got on his knees. He was really funny. "He then said, 'We want to have a band and we want to have you in it. Will you do it?' And Roy said yes."
