    Words on Take The Highway: Live!

    I think Kings Highway isn't on this (sorry Two Gunslingers) to protect it from being removed; I could be wrong.

    Since no one else has responded, I'll tackle this one. Hamburgers? Tom Petty & the Hamburgers? I see what you're saying. I'm going to refine it a bit. Maybe TPATH's music is like a hamburger joint but... ...each burger has the perfect layering of ingredients, where other places throw on a standard amount of garnish, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, etc. TPATH layer on just the right amount of each ingredient, very carefully measured out, with some additional seasonings you won't notice unless pointed out but ones your palette appreciates. That's not all. In addition to burgers, plain and with cheese, they also offer up the occasional unique grilled cheese, corned beef, turkey and even a veggie burger. While most people come and stay for the burgers, there's the regulars who go for these lesser popular plates and even enjoy the daily specials. If TPATH are burger makers than to my taste, the bob segers/bruce springsteens/eagles/james gang/random United States classic rock band are like McDonald's. True they may have a good meal here and there but it's generic processed junk. TPATH are the Mom-and-Pop restaurant, there's something unique about the quality of their food and the care with which they put it together, deceptively simple yet more nutritious and tastier than you'd think. ciao

    Hmm. I like the color scheme but think the base should be wider/larger. I like the handle visually though I don't think it's practical. However, it is no way worth that amount of money (plus shipping?). It's a mug. It's not worth that cost even if you drink Maxwell House out of it.

    Wildflowers BOX set and Filmore release potential!

    As I was about to sit down and sip some non-Maxwell House coffee it occurred to me to once again return to the point that ALL THE REST should be the next release. 1) Supposedly Tom had it completed (or close to?) before his death. 2) The Anniversary of it is coming up in the Fall 3) It is, as far as we know, the one definite project Tom mentioned and wanted to have released. ---All it would take is to release it in the form he wanted as a affordable single or double disc release. If there's some behind the scenes footage use some of that in promotion, maybe pick a new song as an attempt at a single and have it in stores by the time of its anniversary. It'll carry over into the Christmas shopping season as well. 4) Don't muddle the issue with even more tracks found by Ryan; save those for another release, just go with what Tom wanted. Simple. Unless there's some strange unknown reason why this hasn't happened, it goes to show how messed up things are behind the scenes, aside from the lawsuits. Rant done. Peace.

    if TPATH had ever covered YYZ by Rush, do you think Scott Thurston would've helped out on harmony vocals?
  16. Hmm. ---Aside from that I think we're on the same page more or less, your speculation is well reasoned but just your best guess analysis of the situation. That's the thing, we don't know. Yeah, it sounds incredibly stupid (but funny), Tom Petty's face grimly staring out at me at the grocery store from rows of products. Donut Do Me Like That etc. But who knowssss? The Shadow perhaps. I hear ya. I try to avoid these topics and anything else on the lawsuits but something pulls me back in. Gonna have to get better at ignorin' this stuff. I guess enjoy the music you have, albums and live shows and if something good and new emerges from the TPATH camp it's a bonus at this point. My impression is the news is heavily edited, filtered and controlled by a variety of monied interests who don't give a damn about regular people. Local news may be different. My point is, don't let this get you down, we don't live in Trump's World nor Clinton's nor any politicians, not really. Sometimes it's best to get off the internet and get outside, be in God's country and do something physical, don't let the corrupt on either side of political lines get ya down. Speakin' of, took my bike out on a mellow ride the other day, first time this year. Felt good. cheers
  17. I'll take a long-winded defense on this one. If your suppositions are accurate, in terms of being spoiled, then it really shouldn't come as much of a surprise if indeed, there's a divide between how she perceives life, reality, the world, her father and his bandmates work and what most on here would call reality. In other words if what you say is true below and I'm not saying it is, my speculations will follow. If indeed this is accurate... ...then why would anyone think she could handle the stress and extreme financial pressures of any of this? Any judgment rendered unto her is by its very nature also its undoing. Don't expect someone who's never worked a real job their whole life to be thrown into a factory and earn Employee of the Month. I happen to recently peek at Zanes's book and at it's pointed out that coming off the road, Tom was so removed from normal life that he didn't even know how to grocery shop for himself. I'm not condemning Tom for that, nor Adria for her status if indeed she lived off a trust etc. If one's circumstances make one extremely sheltered (and no pun for our fellow Farmer) how could one expect some sudden onset of maturity and level-headedness just because Tom died. And to close off this windbag of a defense, I again think it was in Zanes's book that Adria had to step in and help raise her younger sister during the divorce/Echo period of time with Tom and whatever issues her Mother was dealing with, certainly an admirable thing to do and not something the selfish and narcisstic readily spend time on. And who knows how the stress of that, stepping into the breach as it were, had a long lasting impact. Of course, to some this may seem like a "spoiled little rich girl" but people are more complex than that and none of us have any true insight or history with the involved parties. Spoiled or not, heartache and mourning are still difficult to deal with. Who knows? I don't. Peace.

    Her refusing the box set offer may not even be true, it's "allegedly."

    Sorry Hoodoo Man. Maybe this is just lawyer tactics to try to get a maximum payday since it's one of Tom's most popular records. I'd be surprised if this is never released; hang in there. Wow! Are you sure? I heard there's some good paternity tests out there, wouldn't hurt to double check.

    Vote: Dogs on the Run vs Change of Heart - Live 1985

    Going by the albums Change of Heart is one of their best; a mix of crunchy guitars and a nice pop melody that compliment one another. But I reckon the fun here is comparing these particular performances in which case Dogs is the better choice; the performance has a certain groove that just works, highlighting the melancholy with the sense of freedom and buoyant feelings. In a way, it's like they found the true measure of the song on stage instead of the studio.
