    TomFest got a reaction from Mudcrutch in Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers at the "Punk Premier"   
    The Seattle Times has just recently put their old archives on-line for the first time.  I've been having fun poking around and searching for things.  This is the review of the first trip to town by this new band - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.  The Times "Rock" critic Patrick MacDonald was usually not very kind to rock bands, and he rips The Ramones to shreds here.  But he loved Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.  I wish I could say I was at this show, but I was not.

    TomFest reacted to nurktwin in New RIC ordered   
    I got home about 2pm and Fedex wasn't here yet, they usually deliver about 10am. Me, my daughter and wife sat on the front porch to BS. About 2:20pm the Fedex truck pulled up and brought the box to the porch. I opened it and the guitar is fantastic!!!!!!! It's so beautiful I almost got tears in my eyes! Even my wife and daughter had big smiles on their faces and agreed it is one of the best looking guitars they have seen, and I have quite a few. I haven't plugged it in yet, but will shortly after I take some pix. I'll upload them asap to show you. You know, last year this time I found out I had cancer on my birthday, July 5th and this year, all the news was great and I got an early birthday present. What a great day this is, masks, gloves and all, it's great to be alive. BBL with pix.

    I got back from Clev Clinic a couple hours ago and all 4 of my doctors (surgeon that took me apart, Plastic surgeon that put me together,  Oncologist and radiologist said I was doing absolutely great. Everything in my mouth and neck looked good and felt good, they were surprised I was eating all foods and talking as well as I am. So all is great for now, but I go back July 28th for blood work, CT scans of head, neck and chest and also an MRI and set up appointment with a Dentist. All that will be done in 1 visit with just 1 poke of a needle to put in IV. From the IV they will draw blood, shoot dye in for scans and another dye for MRI. A 2nd operation is still up in the air til I talk to the dentist. I'll keep you posted, or maybe not with the site closing down. But I wanted to let you know all is well for now cuz I was worried about some discomfort in my mouth the past 3 weeks, but I'm ok. Guitar update in next post.

    Awwww, that's sad but I guess it's time.  I've enjoyed being a part of Mudcrutch Farm and sooo enjoyed the discussions & generosity. Thanks to everyone who has been so nice to me here! As a farewell gift, let me share with you the only portrait I've created from the Mudcrutch night at the Ryman Auditorium: the remarkable Tom Leadon.  (This is just for y'all, please don't publish elsewhere)
    My 2nd row seat that night gave me a perfect view of Tom (and Tom P), and lots of good photos came from the evening.  My life got derailed for awhile just months after this show with the unexpected death of my father and the heartbreaking decline & death of my mother only a year later, so it's taken a long time to get back in the art studio with a clear head.  But I'm back drawing, and have just completed a portrait of Josh Jove who was in the opening act The Shelters.

    TomFest reacted to nurktwin in 3 of my bass guitars   
    Here are 3 Beatle Bass guitars. left side is original Hofner Beatle bass made in Germany with Gold logo on headstock. Center Bass is Hofner BB Icon made in China with silver logo. Right side bass is a Korean copy with Musicians Friend logo "Rogue" and with the curly tailpiece was most likely made by Epiphone. That tailpiece is the same as the Epiphone Viola Bass guitar. All 3 pictures have the same guitars in the same order from left to right. The good expensive one is on the left.

    These are Hand Autographed Ric 360/12 Mapleglo by Roger McGuinn in Cleveland, Ohio. 360/12V64 George Harrison hand autographed by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers at the Gorge in Washington State. And the Limited Edition of the Tom Petty Signature Guitar of 1000, which 723 are Fireglo and 277 Jetglo. I bought these new and had them autographed by the artists myself, with a little help from my friends, Chinner and Mike Campbell. I hope you enjoy these 13 pix.

    Ordered a new Fireglo Rickenbacker 350V63 Liverpool 6 string guitar this morning from Sweetwater. I hope it doesn't take years for RIC to make it and ship it. They are available for pre order in Fireglo & Jetglo. Here's mine.........

    I'm ok, thanks for asking.  It just seems that I don't have much in common with folks here anymore.  Rather than get spun up about opinions I disagree strongly with, I'm choosing not to read them.
