  1. Still listening to only Tom Petty music daily

    I've been on a big Drive By Truckers, Justin Townes Earle and Wilco binge since that day with TPATH mixed in.
  2. 2017 - Good or Bad?

    It'll hinge on if the Bills make the playoffs lmao.
  3. Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    Get Playback 2.0 out as well. No need to Indiana Jones this stuff anymore lol
  4. ^^ The Heartbroken would be a terribly cheesy name. Plus I'd say the comparison is totally different. The Crickets were only together for a couple of years with Buddy Holly, TPATH have been a cohesive unit for 40 years. Yes they both had charismatic front-men but the Crickets still could have gone on after Buddy Holly just for the reason they hadn't been around that long. I would just want to see more solo work come out from Benmont seeing as his first album is such a delight.

  6. Radio Tributes to Tom

    Btw, that live version of SOAD was from one of the Bridge School Benefits! That was really neat. I kinda of gave em' hell on their Facebook page because when they first announced they were going to do a tribute to Tom, it seemed like they were only going to do maybe one album. I told them they could do better than that because they constantly do huge marathons and tributes to several different artists for their drives to raise money for the station (again it's a public funded station). One money drive they did was they did a tribute to the Band and played every song from their catalog. Another time they did the top 100 Neil Young songs etc. You get the idea. So I mentioned how a station that takes pride in playing the roots of rock, Americana, folk, alt country should do a bigger tribute to one of rock's most underrated artists who loved radio and got black listed because of it. They didn't disappoint lol.
  7. Radio Tributes to Tom

    It's been a month now since his passing and I was wondering if anyone's local radio stations have done any tributes to Tom. Around these parts, Exit 97.7 (WEXT, an NPR affiliate) was the only station around here to really do something and do a pretty significant tribute. For a week they played an album in full starting at 6 P.M. They played: Damn the Torpedoes, Full Moon Fever, Wildflowers, The Last DJ, Southern Accents, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Traveling Wilburys Volume 1 and Hypnotic Eye. After that, they did a Tom Petty 50 and played 50 of his songs in a row. That playlist looks like this: It'll All Work Out I Should Have Known It The Best of Everything A Higher Place Crystal River Waiting For Tonight Peace in L.A. Yer So Bad Square One Rebels Last Night Casa Dega Love Is A Long Road Shadow of a Doubt (A Complex Kid) (Live) Tweeter and the Monkey Man Dreamville Free Girl Now Hometown Blues Lonesome Sundown American Dream Plan B The Wild One, Forever Echo Straight into Darkness Insider Scare Easy Jammin' Me You Wreck Me You Got Lucky Learning to Fly Change of Heart You Don't Know How It Feels Even the Losers Southern Accents Mary Jane's Last Dance Here Comes My Girl Stop Draggin' My Heart Around Walls (Circus) Don't Do Me Like That Into the Great Wide Open I Need to Know I Won't Back Down Room at the Top Breakdown The Waiting Runnin' Down A Dream Listen to Her Heart Free Fallin' Don't Come Around Here No More Refugee American Girl Was a really good job. I was wondering if anybody else's local radio station had done something similar or some form of tribute to the man
  8. '95 Saratoga Good Sound Quality with brief soundcheck

    ^^ Same lol. Been really wanting to listen to the rare "A Higher Place" live to see if it's just as great if not better live with those ringing 12 string guitars.
  9. How was Full Moon Fever initially received by fans?

    And Howie and Ben lol. They're not wrong. It is overrated.
  10. iPhone X

    My iPhone 6 is bent to shit, but it's still somehow working fine so until she finally craps the bed.....I'll hold off on sinking a grand into a phone lol.
  11. TPATH Guests

    Crosby, Stills and Nash Derek Trucks Band
  12. How was Full Moon Fever initially received by fans?

    Yeah they did cherry pick stuff from the old Behind the Music from 99 so there isn't much in the way of Stan which is a shame because I would really like to hear an updated opinion and view he has on the whole experience. But I gotta disagree with him not being a team player. If I was probably in his position, I too would probably be putting up a fight and trying to have some input on the material that's being worked on. Sure it's Tom's vision but they were a band, a cohesive unit, not just session musicians. They are the Heartbreakers, not the Wrecking Crew. One of the things that makes this band so great is the fact there was basically no lineup changes for 40 years. There aren't many bands that can say they were able to stay together as a unit for that long. Also, the way you hear how Iovine and others talk about Stan, you can tell it's overly critical. The man is the most underrated member of the band. He was the engine that set the beat for nearly 20 years and helped drive those songs. So Stan may have been volatile and pissy at times, but Tom was as well. That's why they butt heads, both have strong personalities. I don't blame him for that. And I don't blame him for being mad on being asked to tour and play the songs off FMF after being told you weren't good enough and wanted for the actual making of the album. I'm glad the HBs did back him on that tour because who knows what would have become of the band and if they would still be a thing after 94 but still, I get where Stan was coming from.
  13. Tour history 1976 - 2017

    Fucking Nightro lol. Gets me every time.
  14. Hard To Handle...Live

    Their version of "Knockin' on Heavens Door", "I'll Remember You" and "Like a Rolling Stone" are just simply amazing.
  15. ECHO - the most real, honest, genuine heartfelt album.

    I remember that thread now lol!
