    Someone just said Debbie Gibson around here?? Seriously though, ODouglas, that's a great post! Thanks for sharing thoughts and insight. Good to have the album put in a wider context. Although context is always something vast and everchanging, right. As for myself, I first heard FMF from up in a tree. That is, I was sitting in the tree and the music came from a tape in a carstereo right underneath. Inside the car with "Tom", was this slightly older girl that I had taken a liking to. "They" kept the door open and I was listening closely to what was going on in there. He was telling her about how he used to live in a two room apartment and how love is a long road and how he won't back down, stuff like that. Things that are all very intruiging for a kid in a tree. Of course, just like Poison, certain things that seem so distant and unlikely today, still happened back then, like 13 year old boys climbing trees. And then what? Well, the girl drove off (next time I saw her, she was listening to The Rembrants) and I rode my bike right home to my dad's record collection to dig out Long After Dark, to restart my lifelong journey with Tom Petty properly. Of course, within days I got hold of a FMF copy, the weather was unusually sunny and warm I seem to recall. And the rest? Is history. Hmm. Yeah. That in itself is a very interesting observation.

    Hmmm... that was during the time of my last days at university. So my memory is a big foggy. (just about to start the college hangover) But I do remember the thoughts of FMF being a breath of fresh air. The late 80's was a strange time for music for me. I just went through the Duran Duran (guilty pleasure) MTV days. Classic rock was not classic yet. Some of the staples of the 'soon to be' genre were having in my opinion... uninspired(ing) years (e.g. Rush, AC/DC, Stones, Van Halen was soon to be in shambles even post DLR Hagar years, etc. - of course I know some will argue this is their best work ) We didn't have the Internet, or streaming, so it wasn't like now where you listen to Buried Treasure and think... Wow! I forgot how good T-Bone Walker is, I think I'll check out his entire catalog. Where there's a will, there's a way... and I still have thousands of vinyl records as I explored and discovered... but it was a much different journey back then. No better, no worse... just different. 1989 was still in the years of Poison, Motley Crue and the hair metal bands (I did listen to my fair share... I admit), the introduction of Gn'R, the up-and-coming years of Debbie Gibson, boy bands, teen-pop and the transition from 80's 'rap' music to 90's hip hop. None of that is bad, as that's the great thing about music... it speaks to different people differently. But for me, many of those transitions just drove me back to the bands I loved in junior high and high school... Led Zeppelin, early Rush, The Cult. I even went back to Damn the Torpedoes for TPatH music, and although I love those records now, I did not have an in-the-moment appreciation of his late 80's catalog. FMF to me was something new/fresh, yet it was still rock and roll. I liked I could drink my wine coolers, shoot pool, talk with friends... and still enjoy great music without having to shout over some over-the-top guitar solo or thumping hip hop beat. It's a soundtrack to my life back then... and whenever I hear a track from FMF, it takes me back to the day and I think of drinking, smoking and throwing darts. (all good things!) And I think that was true for many of my friends too. FMF introduced (and re-introduced) many to Tom's back catalog that was already extensive at that time... and I feel helped propel him for the big things to come... ItGWO, Greatest Hits... Wildflowers... and the catalog continues. So, at least that's how I (hazily) remember it. If I could just find my Rubik's cube, Montgomery Ward boom box and neon color tank top I'd be set!!

    The Divorce Record

    Hey. Never posted here before but I have been lurking for a long time. What an awesome site and wonderful people. Like everyone else, Tom's passing has affected me deeply. I don't have any words that haven't been said. I've met him, know people close to the Heartbreakers, etc but always was and still is the music for me. This past year has been really hard for me personally, and it was Tom's songs that mostly got me through it. Or, I'm still going through it and his death has just made it all even harder. Thought I would share the ones that hit the closest to home for me.

    4 weeks ago. Each and everyday i listened to TPATH. Sometimes with a grin, but most of the time with tears in my eyes. It's still disbelief. For me, can't say if i'm happy, or sad listening now to the old ones, but it will be hard if any "NEW" song will be released. Because it has been written about something that happened in the past. And then again i can't say if i'm happy, or sad listening.
