  7. Dylan covers Petty

    I thought it was a good choice of song. Maybe also ( a bit( symbolic), 'learning to fly'??? I agree with your points Shelter I think another song Dylan might have performed well would have been Time to Move On, but I think Learning to Fly was a good choice. It's not often that Dylan pays tribute to his peers, so this is quite special. For instance, I don't think Dylan paid tribute (in song at least) when Leonard Coen died, even though I would have thought he might.

  12. Wildflowers Re-Issue & Tour

    No news on this as of yet...
  13. Wildflowers Re-Issue & Tour

    Any news on this one? Last thing I read, was this here in David Fricke's Rolling Stone article "Remembering Tom Petty": One of the projects that had been put on hold when Petty died was an expanded reissue of Wildflowers – all of the tracks for the intended double album plus additional, unreleased songs – followed by a tour showcasing Petty's breakthrough writing on that record. "That would have been smaller-scale, away from the hits," Campbell says. But "plans for that somehow evolved into 'It's the 40th year. Let's do this tour first.' "
  14. Not sure, if this popped up here already, but it was new to me. Mike Campbell talking about Tom Petty after his death.
  15. Tour history 1976 - 2017

    Yeah! Me too! I love this stuff. If only there was a resource available for setlists as well.. to combine this great list with! Such set list history would be next to impossible to complete, but perhaps working on some general list of the main songs and typical list of each tour? I'll try to look into it and see if it's doable.. unfortunately most set list sources for early day shows are bootlegs that are not complete shows, but still..

  18. I just realised I sounded kinda harsh about where to post.. I just felt like maybe it's too soon to post on Heartbreaker pages ..however it's really up to you guys where you want to take/post the petition this.. except that Tom Petty Nation facebook page I have posted it there already .. a lot! Hah
  19. What do you need to do today?

    Nurk - you have over 100 guitars, but only one Lester? Maybe you just haven't found the one that speaks to you. Maybe this Epiphone will do that.
  20. Hello.. I am posting this link herein in the hope we can get this thing off the ground..Tom Petty surely earned his wings and he's definitely (sadly for us ).. learned to fly.. I am trying to get this campaign to go viral.. I have posted many times on the Tom Petty nation and Mudcrutch face book pages..alas it only has 286 signatures.. TPN Facebook has followers in the tens of thousands .. am at wits end trying to figure out how we can storm this thing and get it up to a respectable amount.. I have posted messages to my local radio stations, even the Tedeski trucks page, as well ..can you guys help.. please read it, sign it sand SHARE everywhere..out of respect to TPN admins though pls don't re post there right now I don't want to overkill them there and more importantly pls don't post it to the Heartbreakers who are still no doubt mourning this awful loss..please don't post it on their page .. I want to leave them alone for now.. they know we all care and are thinking of them.. this petition should be fan driven at the moment..thank you all so much! <3 and light to all ..Petty ON! https://www.change.org/p/gainesville-alachua-county-regional-airport-authority-rename-gainesville-regional-airport-to-tom-petty-gainesville-regional-airport
  21. What do you need to do today?

    BTW, more on that Les Paul Eric gave George, when George saw that red color, he thought of Lucille Ball's red hair and named the guitar "Lucy".
  22. What do you need to do today?

  23. What do you need to do today?

    Today I need to get my head around getting out from between a rock and a hard place. It's a All You Can Carry song type situation.

  25. What do you need to do today?

    I have 1 Gibson Les Paul, it's a gold top with a 490 humbucker in the neck position and a 498 humbucker in the bridge position. I was never a Gibson fan, except for the acoustic Hummingbirds, Doves and SJ200's. My brother plays guitars and has a cherryburst Les Paul he bought new that is around a 1968 to 1970. I think it's a "Deluxe" model, not sure. But he loves it and claims it's the best guitar he ever bought and always told me some day you have to buy a Gibson Les Paul. I wanted to get a cherry red Les Paul like George Harrison's, but my gold top came up at the right price and I bought it. Later I found out that George's was originally a gold top bought new by John Sabastian of "The Lovin' Spoonful" and he abused it pretty good. One night on tour, John Sebastian's amp blew up and to continue the show and tour he traded that guitar to the guitarist for his opening act for an amp. That guitarist was Rick Derringer that was playing in "The McCoy's" opening for "The Lovin' Spoonful. The guitar was pretty beat up and Rick decided to have it taken apart and redone with a new paint job that was red like the new Gibson SG models at that time. When the guitar was done he picked it up and didn't like it, it didn't sound right, didn't play right and a few days later he sold it to Dan Armstrong's Music Shop in NYC when they got to NYC for a show. 4 days later, Eric Clapton walked into the shop and picked up the guitar and loved it, and he bought it. Sometime later in 1968 George Harrison invited Eric to Abbey Road Studio's to play lead on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" for "The White Album", and Eric brought the red Les Paul. When the session was over he gave that guitar to George. The Harrison estate still has it. That red Les Paul and it's history is probably the only reason I have a Les Paul today. Sorry I was so long winded, but I think everyone should know the history of that guitar.
