    Hurricane Irma

    Marion and Pete are fine. They were without power last I heard. They have some debris but home is secure and they are safe. I live in South Ga and it was awful here so I know it was worse where they live.

    Mud Farm Fan Meetup?

    I would love a meetup. I do not do festivals and have been hoping to get a better venue. My travel funds have become more limited also, so it would have to be in conjunction with a mudcrutch show so I could get more value out of the ridiculously priced airline ticket.

    Processed Sugar

    I am working toward this goal too. I did very good with it for several years. Then my knees started giving out and the treadmill started becoming a clothes hanger. I am back on course. I am eating clean as much as possible. Real food only....no processed stuff. I am avoiding white stuff (breads, rice, sugar, potatoes) for a more healthy choice. My cholesterol is down from 260 to 175 without medication. We need to support one another so we can carry the torch for good rock n roll to the youth in the future, lol!

    Tom is Getting His Own Siriux/XM Station

    No...I know I bought at least one of them. Maybe it was Amazon. I will have to go back and learn. I try to buy it if it is new stuff and not copy unless it is out of availability (as I know you do too since we have talked about it before). I'll do some research when I get time..... I do like both songs alot. Wonder what happened to the re-create of wildflowers that was supposed to include leftovers? Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    Tom is Getting His Own Siriux/XM Station

    I bought mystery of love and little girl blues (I think it was) which were left over from mojo. I bought them on iTunes, or Amazon or something. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    New interview with Mike Campbell

    I always love interviews with Mike! He has been the underappreciated wind beneath Tom's wings since the beginning. I especially love his work with the Knobs because of the energy and "unscripted" nature of the shows. For those of us fortunate enough to see them live, we know that many of the original songs became hits with us with the first sound. We actually "ache" for a professional recording of these gems. Mike says they are recording them and will one day release some form of them, but they are held in chains by his contract with Tom. I know Tom wants his best work to use for TPATH, but why can't he release the stuff Tom didn't use? There are multitudes of people who have never heard Mike's band, and that is a crime! Thanks for the interview. Thanks for the great questions, you are an insightful interviewer. A big thanks for sharing it here for us to access!!!! Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    Today's Weather

    Well the entire holiday here has been in middle to upper 80s!!! Flowers are starting to bloom because they are very confused. Its a little tough to watch Christmas movies wearing shorts. Can't wait to see what our usually low winter electric bills will jump up to for December!!! Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    Excerpts From New Petty Biography

    I loved the style of writing too. I have read a LOT of rock 'n roll autobiographies/biographies and there is not one that is better written. The honesty jumps off the page, and the admiration for the band is present, but is not allowed to get in the way of the truth. "Running Down A Dream" is more like a promoters version of the story, where things are left out and things are polished to look shiny and pleasant. This book is closer to the truth, and I respect Tom more for allowing a few "warts" to be seen. I understand the unfortunate dramas with Stan and Howie much better. I know from personal family issues with addiction, how difficult it is to see someone you love crash and burn. Tom's own addiction issues would have made it even more complicated and impossible to address the problem in another simultaneously. It is time for forgiveness there. This is the first time I see some honesty in the discussion of Stan. As with most "divorces", there are two sides to the story and both are true. I agree with Marion, and wish Mike could have his wings. I have a feeling that his freedom is coming soon. The Merry Minstrel show appearance by Tom and crew, gives me a feeling that Tom is now recognizing Mike's side job as bonefide. I have a good feeling that "Something Good is Coming" with the Knobs! I was also surprised to see more details on Tom's divorce, since I thought there was a vow of silence on both parts...... Must have had an expiration date....😏. If you haven't bought the book, you should. I appreciate the candor of the band, and thank Warren for completing this lengthy, worthy project. I hesitated at first to buy it, thinking I must have already read or heard all there was on Tom and TPATH. I am glad I bought it anyway. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    Just Listened to a "Mojo" concert and here's what I thought...

    I did attend an early tour show and had great seats. What really surprised me was that the audience sat down like they were bored when they played just a few of the Mojo songs. Tom said basically the same thing as in your message. In a later in the tour show, more people remained standing and sang along a little. Tom looked like someone gave him a favorite candy bar! I do not know why so many people just want the greatest hits!!!! I am so glad they have started digging back up some of those old album songs and playing them(like Cabin Down Below, Spike, Something Big, Best of Everything etc). I am burned out on the greatest hits shows. With the cost of tickets and travel, I absolutely feel the sacrifice is okay when I get some of those "old but not forgotten" songs.
