    If this turns out to be true it will be too cool Looks like the current owner was on TPN and the buyer arranged the deal without a realtor putting it on the market. Seems like the intent is to turn it into a Gainsville music museum! This will make it much less creepy to take pictures of the place in the future LOL https://www.gainesville.com/news/20190611/up-for-sale-tom-pettys-childhood-home?fbclid=IwAR1DOoA_TbLtXaaGsYZB11WIHf4HGFqinWrlSGuu743qfTRHEDTtgQG5NaE full article in hidden comment below.

    I'm now in my mid 30s (how the heck did THAT happen?! LOL) but when I was in high school, there were A LOT of TP fans. The Greatest Hits album (the one with the circular picture on the red background) was the only thing that everyone could agree on to listen to in my art class. In other words, once someone put that CD in the stereo, it stayed in! With other CDs, someone (another student) would go and change it after 1-3 songs. Or a mini-argument would start. Glad to see some Zers have picked up on this wonderful band with a wonderful legacy. 😎

    I'm 19, gonna be 20 in less than a month! I've noticed TP's music in the background all my life, but I didn't really become a superfan until last October (and I regret not getting into his music sooner IMMENSELY!). This forum has been an incredible discovery for me. I know all the songs from all the official albums, and I've seen plenty of live videos and documentaries, but I had no idea how much else was out there in terms of bootlegs, interviews, and all of Tom's Sirius shows (I knew about BT, but not Tom Talks to Cool People). I'm glad a place like this exists; it's been really helpful for this young fan who just wants to know all she can know! 😁 On another note, I also run a TP Tumblr if anyone around these parts still checks those out! My username is under-them-skies-of-blue (just like on here 🤣)!

    In an effort to "Shelter" the other topics, I thought I would start a new "master thread" for the Tom Petty Cookbook and other product ideas that we clearly don't want and won't buy. Keep it whimsical, keep it real, but you don't have to cook like a refugee while you are learning to fry if you don't have dog's with wings. So here is my first contribution; Flirting with Thyme rice 1 tablespoon butter 1 cup uncooked white rice 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice On Sale 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves Directions Step 1 Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, and stir in the rice. Cook rice, stirring frequently, until browned, about 5 minutes. Step 2 Mix chicken broth, lemon juice and thyme into the rice. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook 20 minutes, until liquid has been absorbed. Fluff with a fork before serving.

    Oh my, cooking with heartbreakers - this could get tasty. My first thought was "straight into darkness cake" - a deep, dark chocolate cake like this or this. Accompanied by coffee, a bottle of coke, and cigarettes. I kinda wanna try to create a Dirty Knobs Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Bar Cookie with whiskey and chopped walnuts...sigh. There wouldn't be a lot of these bar cookies to go around, but those who get a taste will want more and more. You might even need to fly to California for a bite of these! 😉 And then I googled and found: A heartbreak cake? A melting heart bundt cake? I'd also suggest you do not search for "Tom Petty Cake" on Pinterest, either. 😁

    Massive bummer! And everyone here let out a collective, heartbreaking “Noooooooooooooooooo!” The key players in maintaining and championing the future of Tom’s legacy are Dana, Adria, Annakim, Mike, Ben and Ryan U. All pretty awesome people. And the one’s apparently at odds (most visible) at the moment are the first 3 mentioned. The important thing to remember here is that there’s always 3 sides to every story (or six). As fans looking in from the outside, we have no clue as to what’s happening or being said behind the scenes. We don’t experience the drama, tension and sadness first hand. No use taking sides. I’m certainly not going to call any of them evil. We can only speculate and add our own thoughts to the mix (which, at the end of the day is potentially futile, and sometimes not constructive). That being said (ha ha), here’s a perspective. Each of these 6 individuals were a vital part of Tom’s life. Obviously. No one’s arguing that. In fact, we’re thankful for these people like we were for Tom. They were in Tom’s camp. His inner circle. His family! Each of them should absolutely have a say as to what goes down from here on out. As to how the story unfolds. Each should have sway, as their opinions, convictions and beliefs matter! Is it any surprise that all 6 of them might have completely different ideas and desires to bring to the table? Adria: "Hey, here’s what I’m thinking. You know, my dad wrote so many awesome songs besides all those massive big hits! We should spotlight more on the lesser known but equally great songs, and put out a collection of rare/overlooked/underappreciated songs. Also known as hidden gems, or deep cuts. I’ve always loved Keeping Me Alive! What about Waiting for Tonight!? Oh my goodness, the list will be endless. Could be a 3 disc set!" Dana: “Guys, we totally need to do a 25th Anniversary Wildflowers release, since this was the last project Tom was working on for the last few years! It’s perfect timing for this year. Come on, we all know how much this album meant to Tom, and the fans as well.” Annakim: "I have any idea. How about a release we call “Tom Petty: Peace and Love”, and we collect tracks that have a running theme about how groovy, mellow and chill our dad was. Here’s a few off the top of my head that we could include: Something in the Air, Alright For Now, A Higher Place, …what do you think? Can you dig it? And we could do more themed releases….like Tom Petty: Songs for Stoners….yeah!" Mike: “Hey guys, how about that Fillmore ’97 run? I think every show was recorded, was it not? There’s some good stuff on there! Shoot, maybe it could be a 26 disc box set, of every show. I don't know...I think the fans would like that…" Ben: "Yeah, what Mike said." Ryan U: "Guys, can I come up from the Tape Basement now? I’ve been down here for weeks now. I think you forgot about me. At any rate, dang, the Heartbreakers were a GREAT LIVE BAND. How about a staggered series of digital only concert releases? Premium bootlegs. We could pick one show from ever tour, chronologically. Release one like every month. You know, call it Tom’s Live Treasure. Charge $10 buck a digital download. Kinda like how Springsteen does it. What a novel idea! BTW, I found this song called “For Real.” Check it out… -------- My point…all good! We say yes! I have to believe that their intentions are good, emotions are raw, and convictions are strong. And that combination is creating an impasse. Maybe they aren’t quite able to see through the haze right now because of their loss. The forest through the trees. They are hurting and grieving, they are devastated by the untimely passing of Tom. It’s understandable. It’s simply hard to imagine a world without Tom Petty in it. It’s a terrible thought, and a sad reality. So here we are. We all want Tom back. We all cherish the man and his music. We all get super excited about the thought of new TPATH music coming out. The saddest thing is the apparent inability or unwillingness to choose to come together for the greater good. Are they not able to put aside some personal ideas and ideals to make it work for all? Everyone sufferers as a result of this, yes, even the fans. It’s always so unfortunate when it goes down in public like this. It has the potential to do irreversible damage to family relationships, which is sad. Once these things get set in motion, it’s hard to go back. For the love of Tom…
