    We've just posted our version of "knockin on heaven's door" on reverbnation.com (search for Flyte'66 ) My plan is to record about 12 songs by Dylan that mean something special to me...such as in the case of this one, I first sang this one in front of people when it first came out and I was in a high school group... We've already recorded two others songs. One of the first Dylan songs I ever sang in front of people was "the times they are a changin'"....I was 18 and camping at a campsite in Michigan, playing my guitar at our camp, waitinf for my friends to show up. Some people suggested I play down at the band shell, so I got up and started walking the short distance to the area, singing "Come gather round people where ever you roam " and a bunch of little kids started following me ( I sort of felt like the pied piper 'cept with a guitar ) down to the shell. Once there I started singing all different kinds of songs. When my friends arrived they seen something going on at the shell and lots of people standing around . They stopped and looked and it was me up there singing. Funny how things like that can happen.

    I don't think this has been posted yet. Rolling Stone Germany in its September issue voted (as part of a title story/interview by David Fricke) the best Tom Petty albums and songs. Which means for us: More lists to happily discuss for anybody who still gets a kick out of this! The stars (numbers in brackets) are the same as in the American RS: 5 is highest, 1 lowest. What's also kind of interesting: The brackets in italics show the rating the album got the first time around, in a 1999 issue, where they rated every album up until Echo. I dug that out of my vault of RS issues for comparison. Pretty interesting, because each album got better or did not change, but they never gave a lower rating than they did 1999. Please note: The list of best albums is chronological. They did short comments on the albums but none on the songs. And it's also only a Top Ten list, so not nearly as comprehensive as the American version in the special edition. I find it always interesting what the critics regard as Petty's best work - and what the experts (we) have to say about it. So here we go! Best albums Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers (4/5) (3/5) Damn the Torpedoes (5/5) (4,5/5) Hard Promises (4/5) (4/5) Southern Accents (3/5) (3/5) Full Moon Fever (4/5) (4/5) Into the Great Wide Open (4/5) (3/5) Wildflowers (5/5) (4,5/5) Echo (4/5) (3,5/5) Mojo (4/5) - [Album ratings 1999 not included in the best albums list 2014: You're Gonna Get It (2/5) Long After Dark (2/5) Pack Up The Plantation (2,5/5) Let Me Up (3/5) She's The One (3,5/5)] Best songs 1. American Girl 2. I Won't Back Down 3. Refugee 4. Breakdown 5. The Waiting 6. Rhino Skin 7. It's Good To Be King 8. Fault Lines 9. Free Fallin' 10. Into The Great Wide Open

    Forum last night

    Hi guys. Long time. I am sorry that I've been absent for soo long but life brought me in that direction. Last night I went to the Forum , Inglewood and saw TPATH again and like all ppl said it was the best show ever. I was very surprised I was allowed to bring my point and shoot cameras, but the only reason for that was I didn't have a car to put it back into. I had a ride.... SInce these honest blue promised not to use it (and was threatened they would be confiscated if I did and was caught) I kept my promise and no photos were taken. So I appreciate every little pgoto here, and all I can bring is the iphone ones taken from a looooong distance = nada.!! All in all - the music comes first and I had a wonderful time (almost forgot my very bad aching back) and the songs again just fab.

    Set List Song Requests.

    Name a song you would like to hear Tom do on the Hypnotic Eye tour. Going with the hard rock theme of the new album, I'd like to hear Honey Bee.
