    I interviewed Benmont Tench!

    I had a chance to chat with Benmont recently in advance of his concert run in Northern California.

    I can not tell you how stunned I am to have learned that Mike Campbell plays slide guitar on the Wallflowers Sixth Avenue Heartache, šŸ˜³ I've loved that song since its release and would rank it fairly highly as a song overall. Looks like Mike joined Jacob back in 08 onstage at the Troubadour. I read that George Harrison called Mike after he heard the song and said jokingly something to the effect of "so you are doing me on slide guitar now I see" šŸ˜Ž

    Hey Everybody! Just came across this forum and really like what I see, so Iā€™m hoping to become a part of this community. For our first post just wanted to share with you guys an iconic piece of Tom Petty history, his original Flying "V" guitar that his logo is based off of. This is the Flying "V" that was first photographed with Tom Petty EVER. This is an iconic piece of Tom Petty history. It is also believed that Petty played the guitar too. Check it out: https://www.gottahaverockandroll.com/Tom_Petty_Original_Iconic_Gibson_Flying_V_Guitar-LOT28489.aspx . Just wanted to share this with you guys. Thanks :)

    Dirty Knobs are in studio!!!

    Shit! I'm getting chills right now thinking of Ben being in the DK and maybe hitting the HOB in Boston. Hell I'd pay good money to see them play at Fenway again! šŸ˜ŽšŸ’˜ Is the new guy drumming for them still or was that a guest gig? Edit; Better yet (and its a terrible fit) but nonetheless would be awesome have a tour with Ben as opening act and then join the DK on their set!

    Yeah, that was the first thing I thought of. And Ben can play that in his sleep. The Heartbreakers of course covered "Green Onions" on the Fillmore run, wasn't it?

    Unheard Song From The Mojo Sessions?

    That was cool. Very "Booker T". Duck Dunn would have been proud. I need to listen some more, but that was some pretty solid blues from the Heartbreakers.

    Totally agree with that sentiment. A bloated album that would be much more palatable if they trimmed the fat. But as I said in another thread, if there's anything this band is good at, it's putting great songs in the vault as trash instead of releasing them. Honestly, the EP is a thing, and with the digital age being a thing for 25 years, when they were between albums, they could've and should've released stuff they knew was great but didn't fit their overall album mold as digital EPs and sell them for 8 bucks.

    Unheard Song From The Mojo Sessions?

    Thank you so much! After watching the "Making of Mojo" mini documentary years ago, I instantly wondered why "Help Me" wasn't on the actual album. I agree it would have made it a better album. Would have been a great live song, too.

    Guitar of the day 7/11/19

    7/11/19 Here's a cheap guitar like Tom's RIC 660/12. If you can't get the real one you might consider this guitar for only $207 with $34 shipping. Case would be extra. Below is a site that sells them and a video of unboxing one and trying it out. As far as I know they come in black or cherry sunburst. 6 string - $207 https://www.thomannmusic.com/harley_benton_rb_600cs_classic_series.htm 12 string - $215 https://www.thomannmusic.com/harley_benton_rb_612cs_classic_series.htm VIDEO

    Really touching! I wish my dad sang something to me, unfortunately, him singing would ruin the wedding oompah band performance was more than enough

    This is a clip from YouTube. As I mentioned in a recent post elsewhere, the fella in the hoody is a musician who uses his teaching & performing knowledge to analyse his favourite players / performances. Sometimes he's insightful. Sometime he pretty much just smiles and enjoys the show & gives some factual background. Which, ahem, fans are likely to know already. Given that, he has a quiet positive enthusiastic vibe - I haven't seen one where he rips critically into a performer, so if you want that, look elsewhere interested in watching Melinda? (spoiler alert) this is one where he's geeking out and enjoying the moment. So don't expect anything too deep. Having said that, as always, yes, their playing is a masterclass... amazed & impressed by just how much communication is going on between them all. And wow notice how well they're all controlling tempo and volume by creating rapt near-silence just before Benmont's solo explodes.
