    Tom's childhood home might be becoming a museum!

    Hi y'all, the thread started to split, with a second thread on exactly the same topic. Which is fine, no big deal. May as well cluster it all on one thread, if that's cool with everyone. Arete noticed that this was all go, donations... And then updated us to say no, looks like it's on hold. From the website mentioned above. They provided the (non-creepy) image of The House. Help Preserve the Petty House Welcome and thank you for taking the time to stop by and support the effort to purchase and preserve the Petty Family Home and Tom's legacy. At this time Kevin Beauchamp, the contract holder, has exited his agreement with the Gainesville Music History Foundation Inc. by offering to give his rights to purchase the Petty Family Home to the Petty Family, which at this time does not involve our Foundation. If the Petty family wishes to purchase the home we are in favor of that and support their buying it. Things may change moving forward. If so, we will make an announcement. We had agreed to provide the $20,000 deposit due on the contract this Thursday and that is now on hold until we hear what transpires. So in the mean time we have paused the donation campaign. We will contact each of the people individually who have so kindly donated to the project out of the goodness in their hearts thus far, and we thank them. Please look for news moving forward. Thank you....

    Wildflowers BOX set and Filmore release potential!

    Very punny... Here's a link to some older, happier news from golden era before stuff hit fan... from, um, dunno, maybe 6 months ago? Interview with Rick Rubin on Broken Record podcast. If link doesn't happen to work, you can find this wherever you access podcasts. (This has very possibly already been posted somewhere here. Maybe even by me. ) https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/broken-record/e/57883752 Recording Mary Jane's Last Dance and Greatest Hits Songs (lots of covers) being recorded & used soon afterwards in Playback boxset. Interviewer is puzzled: Music versus writing ... With writing, everything is used. With music, it seems okay to create / record but then discard? Wtf? Rubin responds with interesting ideas about creative process. Tom Petty's project of creating album of songs from Wildflowers sessions (i.e. what folks like us are calling All The Rest.) Rubin talks about those songs as being selected & mixed & the album as a finished thing. Interviewer saying he & Rubin listened to the as-yet-unreleased album via Rubin's mobile phone. (So, disclaimer, I'm joking, obviously, this is not what I'm planning to do.) Plan - access Rick Rubin's phone and liberate All The Rest.

    Possibly. If "The Waiting" gets over-run we can expand.

    Question of the day 6/9/19

    I've seen Mickey Mantle quite a few times in Cleveland when I was a young kid. Saw him, Roger Maris, Yogi and others hit home runs, even saw Whitey Ford pitch. My father chartered a couple buses each year for double headers between NY & Cleveland, 2 years he even chartered a Pennsylvania Railroad passenger train for the trips to Cleveland!! Mickey was my childhood hero and I'm lucky enough to have 2 baseballs and 1 picture autographed by him. Here's a 1 hour story about Mickey.

    Help make Tom Petty's childhood home a museum

    I was a bit surprised that the estate wouldn't want to run this for such a low buy in price. Hopefully it proceeds without drama in light of the legal disputes with the music side of things...

    Help make Tom Petty's childhood home a museum

    For now, the Foundation has paused the fundraising effort in light of the Petty family's direct involvement. Updates will be posted at http://www.gmhfi.org/tph/

    Question of the day 6/9/19

    We're in full purge mode. They sent Encarnacion (leading the league in home runs) to the Yankees a couple of days ago - for a kid we used to have on our roster that they traded away. I'm pretty sure they'll dump Dee Gordon (2nd base) as soon as possible - and anyone else that has trade value. All for re-stocking our minor league system - which was universally considered the worst in all of baseball. 42 years of never winning the penant and we're in last place with the worst farm system in all of baseball. It is hard to be a Mariner fan.

    Question of the day 6/9/19

    Sometimes he reminds me of the Giants' Brian Wilson, who was also rarely boring. I know Diaz has several saves this season but it seems like every time I watch him, he stinks. Maybe I am jinxing him, haha. Crazy what has happened with the Mariners, especially because they started out so well. Baseball is a strange game!
  16. Breakdown got a spin on Radio Nova here in Dublin Ireland yesterday evening as I was walking home. 😀

    Here's Mike Campbell looking happy in a YouTube post. Dublin this week... Neil Finn has green scarf 💚 The footage is simply terrible (I feel sea-sick just watching) but every now & again Mike's in focus. When he is, it's all worthwhile.

    Rock N Roll Drive-In

    I agreeeee! ...he makes the whole process so fascinating. I watched this during a holiday break & loved it every second of it - just like you say, don't miss a second. For some reason the dogs even sat beside me and watched it too. (Probably in hope of food 😄) This is even though I have never set foot in studio (& never will except on a tourist guided-tour or something).
