    Amber got a reaction from limonali in Sweetwater Music Hall Review 6/12/15 (with Videos)   
    Haven't shared this, but Mike says they have many DK recordings and when his main gig is over, they will put them out for the fans. He said it may just be sort of "underground" albums for us or it could be mainstream release. Don't know what the future holds. I asked him how he can't do it now but Benmont released an album recently. He explained the relationship between TPATH and Benmont is different than between Mike and TPATH. Mike is the co-captain. He is also rewarded different ly....so he has a contract to upkeep.

    Amber got a reaction from PatiAngel in hair   
    Mike's hair is very curly so he never had to perm. He has fought to control it over the years. His son has the same curly hair, but the daughters do not (which is usually how it goes). He does wear it in dreads now (not sure how much is his and how much are extensions). Since I have seen him up close and personal, it has thinned some on top and is receding a little and you can see the gray roots. They spend more time on their appearances when touring. I think he is better looking with age and seems to be getting younger every year (something I am very envious of). Tom had a hair accident several years ago when his hair was caught in a speaker somehow and he wore a wig for awhile, so his hair has appeared to change over the years. It looks thicker now because he does color it and it isn't as long as it once was. He may have some additions, but I can't really tell for sure. Both Mike and Tom are no strangers to the lady Clarol in hair and beards..   However, they look really good and I do not care what it costs, it is worth it. I am also suspicioning that Tom may have had a little plastic surgeon/dermatology help, whether botox or whatever since he really looks much different than the 30 year anniversary show. I know for sure Dana has because it is quite obvious to me. I am not in anyway judging or trashing the guys AT ALL!!! I would love to spend about $100,000 to put things back where they used to be if I had the money. If I were in the public eye as much as they are, it would be done for sure!
     
    I think they are both aging well and am very impressed with Mike's agility. If I ever got down on my knees like he does, they would have to call 911 to get me back up. I am much younger too. They exercise and eat well, which is why they are able to do what they do even though they are considered senior citizens in most places. When I went to the clubhouse, Mike ate a vegitarian burger made from bella mushrooms and beets. I have to say, the diet is working very well for him!

    Amber got a reaction from btltez in ECHO - the most real, honest, genuine heartfelt album.   
    I love Echo too. Guess you have to have gone through a similar event in your own life to get it. Don't listen to it regularly. I save it for times when I need a little cathartic therapy and listen from start to finish. It is a very raw and deep album. It seems to give my soul a cleansing.

    I fear my heart is broken. I awoke to the tragic news of the terrible events of yesterday piling onto the suffering already underway for so many in this world. My heart was already heavy and now this. I am praying for all of Tom's family, all of the Heartbreakers and their families, all of the dear friends who make up that family, and all of us who shared the love of Tom and the Heartbreakers music. My heart aches for all of you. R.I.P. Tom. 😢

    Latest article update:
    We're told after Petty got to the hospital he had no brain activity and a decision was made to pull life support.

    TMZ is usually pretty accurate. The article was updated saying life support was pulled? Guessing TP had a DNR in place.

    This is what you call a real barn burner of a song. I'm kinda surprised that this hasn't been done live much more often on tours, it's a real live killer in my book, and I would suggest that it would be the ideal replacement for You Wreck Me in the set list, for at least a tour or five!  It also shows that the boys can still rock out with the best of them, while also having that red clay and peaches hanging on a tree quieter intersection in the middle of the song.

    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.

    A friend of mine told me that Tom's stepson is in The Shelters. After surfing, though, it looks like he is mistaken. If I'm not losing my mind, Dylan is Tom's only stepson, correct?
