  2. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    I respect your opinion and sorry if you took my post wrong... Is their any objection to at least reprinting things that have not been available for a long time? Like the books "Conversations with Petty" or the coffee table book "Running Down a Dream"? Some of us hadn't bought that and would like to buy it now.....as well as DVDs of some of his concerts such as Take the Highway. Since Tom originally authorized those things, I see no reason to not put them out again for people to buy. Perhaps any new things will take a while - but I think it would be nice to reprint some of the things that were out of print for many years. Those books on Amazon are selling for "over the top" prices and I'm sure Tom would not be happy with those high prices as he is one of the few artists who really cared about his fans and making his concerts, books, DVDs, CDs, affordable for everyone. He once said he didn't want to just appeal to the "elite" and from that day on, I loved him. Anyway, I'm new to this forum, but I'll limit my posting. This forum is a great place though...and really enjoy reading the different topics and news.

  5. Question of the day 3/16/18

    Don't really eat dinner. I have a late lunch. Just do not feel like eating, I guess.
  6. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    Him being alive is what should have generated sales and popularity! And so it did. Sorry, but death as a marketing tool is f-ng ugly, if you excuse my language. Other artist's management may be trigger happy to reprint and market anything within "days/weeks", but one of the main reasons I loved Tom Petty in the first place is that his management won't. I hope that doesn't change now when Tom's own controlling hand is gone. Reading your post make me wish they will take even longer to release anything. As for "All The Rest", it's been ready and waiting and even marketed since my granda was a young boys, so that one could really be released already, I agree that process has been ridiculous (even if I really understand a certain on-hold type of reasoning for the last few months). As for everything else, I say it's good that they just don't hurry to flood the market with all kinds of ugly stuff just cash in on death and on people being pathetic, loving and respecting dead artists over living ones. Seriously. Some respect. Some dignity.
  7. Question of the day 3/16/18

    Well, it's Saturday now. I ran to the store this morning. I had a green Paddy's Day cupcake (ok, like 3, but they weren't very big!)... anyway, my grandma (who was more like my mother) was born on March 17th in 1930. She's been gone just over two years. I miss her everyday! Also, I had a craving for honey roasted peanuts which I probably haven't eaten in a decade, so those were good. I'll probably just snack around for dinner. I bought some Balsamic/Basil Triscut(sp?) and they're really good. Cheese, olives/peppers, etc stuff like that. I haven't made many "meals" for a while. I haven't felt like cooking in a long time, and since I had food poisoning about a month ago, I've just not been as passionate about food as I normally am... LOL. Yesterday, I was so tired. All I ate for the whole day was a little Naan bread made into a baby-pizza (yum!)
  8. Prayers for Tom Petty - 1950-2017

    I think Tom's health was declining for a while, and possibly had other medical conditions than the ones that was announced. Also, in a previous post, I too noticed the "shaking" and "twitching" on that Music Cares video - but perhaps that also could have been caused by some of the meds he was taking....just a thought.

    The photos of Tom Petty are great! There was something about his appearance that I found very appealing....his style of clothes, his confidence, his hair, his eyes, his smile, and the coolness factor.....and of course his voice was very, very sexy....both his singing and speaking voice. He just was THE BEST and I never tire of looking at him and listening to him
  10. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    Fans would love to be able to buy some Tom Petty things. It's been 6 months since his passing and not any books, dvds, BluRays... nothing. How about some reprints of "Conversations with Tom Petty" or "Running Down a Dream" coffee table book? Some of us never saw or bought the book and would like to buy it now. When other singers/entertainers have passed away, many things were put out on him/her within days/weeks of the passing. I hope that in the coming days/weeks, more Tom Petty things can be available to fans who would really like to enjoy buying items of his. I'd love to see some live concert DVDs or Blu Rays of "Take The Highway", "Pack Up the Plantation", "Winterland" and so many other fabulous concerts. They can even put out DVDs of his various interviews and parts of different concerts. At this point, anything would be welcome on Tom Petty. For me, he is a "legend" and his passing should have generated a high volume of his work to be sold in stores.

    The thing about this band is that, at times it felt more like a family than a band. They worked hard but their feeling together has always been a very important, integral part of who they were as a band. So now they are grieving, literally more like a family and friends than a business unit and I bet until they are over the worst of it, we won't see anything. And I would not wanna rush them. That's my 2 cents.

    Nice socks! Nice guitar too.

  17. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    Were any of his concerts during the 40th anniversary tour professionally filmed?
  18. Question of the day 3/16/18

    It's Friday, what's for dinner?
  19. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    But "all the rest" has to be seriously close to ready for release by now? I mean they were saying its coming soon for a couple of years now.... Obviously the untimely passing of Tom puts things in a holding pattern but I have to think it would be out by the end of the year at the latest???
  20. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    I don't see anything happening soon. Just because there is material that can be released, it takes a lot of time (sometimes years) to mix tapes to studio quality for release to the public. Then you need the band there to work together on each track, get a producer, engineers and so on. Just because there is a tape or video, that doesn't mean it's ready for release. After 40 years of perfection, I don't think the band will rush release anything until it's perfect.
  21. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    I'm not a huge fan of basing releases upon rather arbitrary anniversary dates, but there does seem to be some kind of marketing logic in releasing All the Rest in 2019, which would be the 25th anniversary of the 1994 release of Wildflowers.
  22. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    Well, Bowie knew that he was dying, and, assuming that TP didn't know what was going to happen, he/they hadn't planned for that. I imagine that it's a big shock for everyone and that it might take a while to decide how to handle this new situation and what the best thing to do might be.

  24. So I understand the period of mourning & not wishing to cash in on Tom’s passing, but when are we going to get some stuff ? the blu rays of Mojo & DTT are changing hands on eBay for fortunes, could do with a re release & we all assume All The Rest is just waiting for someone to press return on a keyboard somewhere. David Bowie himself seemed to initiate his postimous releases with a furious burst of activity just before his demise. I certainly wouldn’t feel ripped off if some nicely packaged posthumous or retrospective stuff came out.
  25. Classic Rock Video of the Day II

    I pre-ordered Neil's latest archive release - a live record from the "Tonight's The Night" tour. This is almost a holy grail item for me. That might be my favorite Neil Young album and I've been waiting a long time for an official release from that tour.
  26. Photo of the Day Part III

    I tried to find a good color picture that shows his eyes because Tom had beautiful eyes as well as a beautiful smile. This is the best I could find.
  27. Random Thoughts Thread

    I agree as well. I am really tired of it all.
