    Tom Petty Action Figure from the Simpsons

    I got my Tom Petty Action Figure in the mail. How cute is this? I think I will leave it in the box. I can't believe the officials never announced this big news! It is very cute!!

    Tampa - September 21, 2014

    Sorry I haven't been around much but life is crazy full these days and I have very little spare time. I just wanted to stop by and say that the Tampa show had to be one of the best shows I ever saw and I wasn't even on the floor in the front row or even in the first few rows. I was about 10 rows up on Mikes side. I had a wonderful view. I think the venue was near capacity at 21,500 and the show had out of this world high energy. The singing from the audience as incredible and I don't think most people sat down all night. It was an amazing feeling and I don't think I have felt that much energy since the Vic shows in Chicago. What a great feeling for the band too. I know they were blown away. When they took their bows at the end of the night everyone left the stage except for Tom who stood there a few extra seconds by himself. It was clear he did not want it to be over and I think if he could have he would have played a few more songs, he was that high on a cloud. It must thrill them to no end to still be able to fill up a huge venue and get that much love back out of a crowd at this point in their career. Every song they did was perfect. The sound was perfect. I think the set list was perfect with a mix of old and new songs. We got Woman In Love!! I was very happy with the choices except they didn't play Fault Lines and that would have just been the cherry on top! For the first time I did not take one picture during the show and I never even took my camera out. I just took it all in and what a pleasure it was!! Mike Campbell - that man couldn't get any hotter. He blows me away with talent and just thrills me to the core. I love his look too! He is badass cool with his wicked dreads. They are getting long! Love it!! Thinking on it, maybe one thing that kept the crowd in good control was the beers were $15 a piece!! There was not so much running back and forth to get more beer and then running to the bathroom. Everyone stayed in their place. Now I wish I had another show to go to!! hahaha! I thought I only needed one on this tour but now I'm longing for more! For those of you who still have shows to look forward to, ENJOY!!!

    Victim of Circumstance

    I caught Victim of Circumstance on Benmont's radio show today and it sounded, so, so good! I love that song with Mike singing! He sounds great!! I'm so happy to hear Mike sing one of his own songs!! I will record the show later this week and share it here when I get a chance. Benmont is a good DJ!

    Friday I went to a concert at a little club in Gainesville called The High Dive. Road Turkey was headlining. It was Stan Lynch's band in Gainesville in the 70's. The original lineup got together to play for this one gig and it was absolutely great, a real treat! It was so much fun for us and them and I hope they will do it again because for me, the energy was right up there with Dirty Knobs show! They were so good! This is the first time that I ever saw Stan play live and I loved it so much! I was able to meet him briefly and shake his hand. He was so nice and he was very tall and still as handsome as ever! Man, just watching him play, his facial expressions were so familiar from all of the videos I've watched over the years. I can't believe I finally got to see him play live! They played mostly covers but they were GREAT! Marty Jourard was fantastic on vocals, keyboard and saxophone and their lead guitarist blew us away! Man, he was so good!! The show was exciting and got better and better as the night went on. It was the energy that drove everyone, the fans and band alike. Really great energy. I didn't know what to expect when I went there but I'm so happy that is was so great for all! Please, Please, Please, fingers crossed, I hope they will play again!! Here are a couple of pictures and the one and only video I took. It was one of the first songs they played. I hope I will be able to get some of the other videos because I know other people took videos. I really want them because they were really good! This was the mural on the building at the High Dive. It was really, cool! I really like murals.

    My 2014 tour experience

    I am proud to say I have been to 11 TPHB shows to date. My first was the first date of the European tour at The O2 Dublin in Ireland June 2012, second at the Marquee Tent in Cork Ireland the day after, third at The Beacon Theatre NYC in May 2013 and the last 8 after that on the 2014 tour. Decided to follow the tour over my US vacation in September / October 2014. First up was the Cruzan Ampitheatre in West Palm Beach, a fine sultry out door Florida evening enhanced by TPHB, then onto The Amelie Arena the next day in Tampa. A special atmosphere, a lot of love in the room that night, even Free Fallin (a song i could easily do with out personally) elevated by a chorus of earnest hearts in the audience. Off to Red Rocks Colarado after that. I had pre-booked a ''party bus'' to get there and back for the three nights. We had a zany DJ/ bus driver from Kanzas called Val for the first two nights who spun the tunes and got us safely from down town Denver to Red Rocks via will call. The third night, I did indeed get a little high in the mile high city, but that's another story...Red Rocks was a beautiful setting, the second night the rain descended and the wind blew but was the high light of the three nights there. A real connection between stage and audience that night that was very special. On to Anaheim and The Honda Centre on my birthday. The hotel was directly opposite the venue and could see the build up from my room window. Mike Campbell delivered the most blistering lead guitar solos I've ever seen on that night, was a real treat to experience that on my birthday. Onto LA LA Land.....had a few days at Santa Monica, saw the sun set....very special....and the last two shows at The Forum...less than fabulous as a venue. Had a great time overall. The same set lists each night were a disappointment, would even go so far as to say that the same set list each night was a disgrace, a rich catalogue to draw from but the same set list a nod to lazy conformity rather than a supposed ''palate of consistency''. I shouted each night for Casa Dega, You Tell Me, Rhino Skin. No luck though! It was interesting to note that the three songs that grinded my gears to annoyance most in the set list to over repetition over the 8 shows were 'Into The Great Wide Open, Free Fallin', and You're So Bad. The other songs though repeated were interesting as Mike always had a different lick to keep things interesting most nights. Tom's ''joke'' of the difference between a six string guitar and a 12 string guitar is that a six string guitar has six strings did start to grate after the second time I heard it. Steve Winwood and band deserve a special mention, I got to see their full set, 7 of the 8 nights and was kicking myself to miss the start of their last set. Overall, I would say that the residencies at The Beacon and Fonda were the shows to get to if seeing more than one show a tour, as the set list was varied , I was moving house and countries in 2013, so missed out on that opportunity, but was blessed to be able to follow a part of the 2014 tour. I would not go to the expense of 8 shows with the same set list for any other band. It does still stick in my throat that Tom plays the same set list every show on a tour though....in many ways it is a disgrace especially saying the same 'jokes'' between songs every night too....forget the corporate money men Tom and lets have some spontaneity!!! PLEASE!!! I refuse to shuffle this mortal coil before hearing Casa Dega, Restless, Luna, You Tell Me, Rhino Skin, Dogs on the Run (1977 version) Strangered In The Night, It'll all work out, Driving down to Georgia, The Damage You've Done, Lousiana Rain, Runaway Trains, Crystal River, Scare Easy, Lover of the Bayou, Stories we Could Tell, Lost Without You, Magnolia. Make it happen!

    I haven't been coming to this site for some years other than very rare occasions so don't feel my input is as crucial as others. That being said, I agree with Shelter 100%. Don't let those big social media behemoths who only want to steal as much info from you as they can so they can profit from it cause you to discontinue a place of true discussion. Facebook is a lousy place to truly discuss anything or get to know anyone. I have wanted so badly to be engaged with fans of other bands as well and Facebook is the only outlet. And it's a lousy one. It doesn't work. Places like this one and the offical BBS are important to the hard core fans. The fact that someone isn't asking on a weekly basis, "What is your favorite Tom Petty song?" like in groups on FB is reason enough to keep this "old fashioned" method of commuciation going.

    Pictures From The Gorge

    A splendid time was had by all. I don't think I've ever heard a louder crowd on the singalongs. And we sang a lot. I have some nice high-res videos of several songs too. Here are some photos from last night........

    Mudcrutch Boot - New York 6/10/16

    I have the 6/10/16 show in NY available for download if anyone is interested. I will have to share this show in flac files since I got it from a kind person at Dime so if you are interested PM me and I will share. The show is a very good quality and worth the effort. Man, I am so grateful to those who record!! It is such a gift for those of us who could not make it to a show.

    I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed the show at The Sweetwater Music Hall. I had been to the old Sweetwater venue years ago and loved its charm and sense of history so I was disappointed to hear it closed. I didn't know what to expect from the new location but this place was really wonderful! It has a small restaurant with inside and outside dining and a separate hall for the concerts, mostly standing room only. There is a long bench along the wall for seating which was great because the back of the seats had a wide ledge running along the top which we were able to sit on and it was the perfect perch for a clear view of the stage. The acoustics in the room were amazing as well. Perfect, really. I went to the show with Amber and Sharon and met up with Brandon, his wife Sarah, and Linda (DoxieJo) and Ames and it was a pleasure! Amber, Sharon, Ames and I had meet and greet tickets. It was really weird to us to have special tickets to get to talk to the band. It all seemed so formal and we were really nervous for some reason. We almost backed out and said forget it but we went anyway. haha! The meet and greet was at a different place near the venue in a cool garden setting outside and was held during opening act. It turned out to be really fun and the guys were so nice and funny. All day long we were trying to think of things to ask them. I even had a little pad of paper to write down questions but we couldn't think of a thing so we just ended up chatting about whatever. It was just so good to see them again! It had been 3 years since I was able to make it out there so it was really special. We talked some about the music and the show at the City Winery and how long we had been coming to see them and the first time we met Lance and Matt at Vinny's in Bakersfield. Of course the subject of when they were going to put out a CD came up and Mike said it wouldn’t be anytime soon. It would be after his other contracts were up so we will just have to be satisfied with our boots I guess. I still don’t understand why he can’t do both and why his wonderful music has to sit on the shelf. It just maddening to me!! WHY, WHY, WHY? I mean, some of my favorite Dirty Knobs songs are 15 years old and have not been put out in a professional format! That’s crazy!! The night before at the City Winery we chatted with them outside for a few minutes and I requested that they play Blow Up My Stereo at Sweetwater so Mike said they would open the show with it. That was exciting because I was finally able to get a good video of that song and it will make a nice audio track for my collection. The fans were really great at the show and there was a high energy vibe. Everyone was having a great time. The Coffis Brothers and Petty Theft were spotted in the crowd watching the show and you could just tell how much they admired their hero. Speaking of the Coffis Brothers, after the meet and greet we caught the last few songs of their set and OMG were they so good! I wish I’d seen the whole show! I bought both of their cds and I’ve been listening to them all week. Those guys are going to make it big someday. They were so nice too! The Coffis Brothers I recorded several videos which I will share here. Over the years (15 years) I asked Mike time and again if I could share the videos I recorded but he would always say no and I don’t know why! But this time I didn’t ask! I think these things need to be shared with fans, especially since we don’t get to have professional recordings and the Knobs don’t travel outside of California. There are fans all over who miss out so this is my gift to you all. I will post the videos here in this thread as I get them uploaded. The show was so good and I love the new songs. I think my favorites right now are “Goin’ Down” and “Sister Gypsy.” Mike had this white guitar and I’m sure someone will be able to tell us what it was, but and he made it growl real low. “Senor” was fabulous too! I’m sorry I didn’t get it on video! I swear this music touches my soul and I love it so much! All of the songs were great!! Ape always blows me away. I loved “Easy Wind” and “Don’t Think Twice”. Swampfox and Lance, awesome rhythm section! I love how much this band loves to play together. I have boot of the entire show thanks to Brandon. If anyone is interested, I will share. Just drop me a PM and I will send you the link.

    The Last DJ tour promo appearances

    Speaking of interviews - do you remember the appearance on The Today Show supporting "The Last DJ", and Katie Couric's interview with Tom? This is pretty funny stuff. The interview is followed by the band playing "I Need To Know". Maybe some of you haven't seen this... And the performance of "The Last DJ"........

    The Raleigh Concert was great, and I was lucky enough to see Donna Lamb and Robbie Keaton again. We got to talk for a few minutes, and then I wanted to share a picture from where we all went to California to see the two Santa Barbara Concerts 13 years ago. It was probably the most fun and exciting trip I have ever had the opportunity to be a part of. In the Santa Barbara picture is Diane Czybora Abesse, Marion Stolmeier, Donna, Robbie, and myself (Deborah Thomas).
