    Harrison's distinguished musical career included two solo albums and three singles that charted number one in the United States. The above song was recorded while Harrison was a member of the Traveling Wilburys, and the lyrics are officially credited to that group as a whole. However, several sources give Harrison the writing credit (the other members of the group were: Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty). Harrison was also a key member of another moderately successful musical group, The Beatles, and recorded twenty number one singles and nineteen number one albums with them.
