  3. Tributes and covers from peers and writers

    I like M. Ward and I saw that he finished his set with Running Down a Dream on his recent tour. I haven't seen any footage or heard him sing it. Has anyone here heard/seen his cover of that song? I would love to hear it.
  4. ^^ The Heartbroken would be a terribly cheesy name. Plus I'd say the comparison is totally different. The Crickets were only together for a couple of years with Buddy Holly, TPATH have been a cohesive unit for 40 years. Yes they both had charismatic front-men but the Crickets still could have gone on after Buddy Holly just for the reason they hadn't been around that long. I would just want to see more solo work come out from Benmont seeing as his first album is such a delight.

  6. Well, they surely could become the most sought-after studio band, that's for sure. And I wouldn't see a reason why they should not back up other artists on their albums. Live it's a different story, however... I can't see them doing that, but I'm absolutely convinced if they ever become somebody's backing band onstage, they will do it with immaculate taste.
  7. I don´t see that and I hope they don´t do it.
  8. Traveling Wilburys Book

    But you surely remember what Bo Diddley (and Tom Petty) said about judging a book by the cover.
  9. How was Full Moon Fever initially received by fans?

    My first copy of this was a cassette copy of the CD when it came out. I liked it . Played it quite a bit with headphones. Lots of great songs on this CD , and one of my top 5 TP & HB CDs. Someone mentioned the Stan interviews . I first saw them on the Disney Channel's " going home " series. It came out around the time of the greatest hits CD. Great posts here. On a side note his cover of the Byrd's tune added money into Gene Clark's bank account , which was good for Gene.

  11. Tacky/insensitive TPATH email?

    I got one. Not surprised though.. must say.. these people just.. Never mind. I say criticizing is appropriate though.
  12. Tacky/insensitive TPATH email?

    Which email? I got one a while ago. The handling of a lot of things recently has been a bit odd. Yes I realize this was an unexpected situation and it surely is a bit crazy within management but they seem disconnected. Hard to criticize in a time like this -- easy to get jumped on for calling things out but not everything is all peaches and cream.
  13. Tacky/insensitive TPATH email?

    Surely I am not the only person who received the email regarding TPATH tour merchandise. Is it just me, or couldn't they at least have added an "RIP Tom Petty" statement? What were they thinking?
  14. Girl Songs

    Name all the TPATH songs you can think of that have a girl's name in the title. And if you know, who is that girl?
  15. I can't see anything like that happening.
  16. I could imagine a tribute album with guest vocalists. Something like the "No Talking, just Heads" album from the David Byrne-less Talking Heads. Maybe with Stan Lynch as a guest drummer... I loved Benmont's solo album. A second one with the Heartbreakers backing him would be great. They don't even have to call themselves the Heartbreakers if they don't want to. We just want to see these guys together again. If one day they decided to become the backing band for another artist (Roger McGuinn, Stevie Nicks, Dhani Harrison come to mind), I think it would be a good move to rename themselves "The Heartbroken". "Dhani Harrison and the Heartbroken" - I'd love to see something like that happening.

  18. Traveling Wilburys Book

    For a change I'll judge a book by its cover and say: This doesn't look very promising. But I'd be happy to be proven wrong!
  19. The Shelters cover Tom Petty

    Those poor guys. My heart goes out to them. What a cool thing for them to do! I love it!
  20. The Shelters cover Tom Petty

    That was very nice, thanks. And this is something we love to do - get 3 or 4 friends/bandmates together with acoustic instruments and have a night. We did just that on Saturday, and plenty of Tom Petty songs were heard. Great fun.

  22. Mike's solo album

    I hope with all my heart that he does! He has got some great songs tucked away!
  23. Traveling Wilburys Book

    Has anyone read the new Traveling Wilburys book, "The Traveling Wilburys: The Biography" by Nick Thomas? I just saw it on Amazon.
  24. Tributes and covers from peers and writers

    I've done Google searches on Tom Petty every few days after he passed away and I've been amazed by just how many musical tributes have been staged around the country. Here where I live, they held a tribute with 20 local acts and filled up a large concert hall.
