    Old & new interviews with Tom & the Heartbreakers

    Thanks for posting this. I'm glad there's no rush for a tribute show. While it could be fabulous, I've no real need to hear/watch a bunch of random musicians/singers play most likely the same old songs with the band. I wouldn't be surprised if it happens at some point and I may change my mind and be glad it happened but at this point in time, I don't need another version of Free Fallin'. Especially since most (not all) of the covers are just pretty much the song as is. As for the box set, I'm glad people can purchase For Real on its own. I can appreciate them trying to diplomatically figure out what songs to add to this but really, it's just another compilation after Greatest Hits/Anthology Through the Years and American Treasure. I realize everyone has different taste and are excited about this but I don't get it. Maybe future releases will be collections of unreleased tunes, like For Real and Walkin' From the Fire. But for all the Wildflowers fans out there who have been diligently waiting, I hope you get All The Rest next. cheers

    I'm drinking some high quality dark roast coffee, black and reading this.

    I'm surprised you don't have this. Heck, I'd be surprised if anyone on this site doesn't have this. Go here, there's at least 5 different versions to choose from. Their longest concert: https://livepetty.com/1997-2/

    Zollo and Zanes books on Petty, what do you think?

    Pretty much. Who knows how much was edited? I'm sure it wasn't easy discussing what happened to Howie at all. I'm sure one may get a different view if they were to talk to Stan about it etc. The problem is if anyone thinks this take is definitive, etc. But then, this is probably a very specialized or niche audience; I don't think most people know nor care who played bass in the band nor about their addictions. Did you ever end up going? I've found exercise is just half the equation, the other half is what you eat and drink. When you get both working in tandem you'll feel great. Anyway, do you work out? Machines? Free weights? Elliptical?

    For Real

    Maybe there's some amazing TPATH songs waiting to be heard down the road but if not, I'm pretty content with what he and the band gave us over the years, hell, releasing HE at nearly 40 years into their career is amazing, most bands don't last that long let alone pull together such a powerful album towards the end of their run. So while I'm curious about new music, or one-off song additions to a collection, I'm not super excited, or my expectations are tempered. I like this one from the first listen. As not much of a fan of Tom by himself with a guitar, I'm glad the band joined in fairly quickly. There's some interesting chord choices or melodic phrasing that Tom's doing that make the song stand out. Sometimes Tom has been a good lyricist and other times not so much, it's more the emotional weight he gets through what is usually simple lyrics and that's what's coming through here, for me. The only thing that happens sometimes with a song that's so instantly catchy is I end up getting tired of it sooner than a song that took me a while to appreciate; I guess in time we'll know. But I like the gentleness of the song, even when the drums come in, it all sounds very restrained and is more powerful for it. When he sings "brother" whether that's literal or not, made me think of She's The One; I realize this was recorded after and spontaneously (?) and I think that's one of Tom's and the band's best gifts, the ability to write something on the spot and have it sound good, but I think this could've fit on She's The One. I could see it being on Echo as well though it doesn't sound much like anything else on that record, maybe it would've worked as the emotional center of that record with nearly everything stripped back, no emotional guitar playing like at the end of One Moe Night or whatever ends that record. I like it overall. Thanks for sharing this on here and I'm glad one can purchase the songs individually instead of having to purchase the box set. That's good. cheers

    I like the mellow sitting on a cloud imagery instead of something action oriented. cheers
