  1. Sounds like we are finding out more and more of what’s going behind the scenes and why the date change occurred. I hope they get things straightened out. I don’t like to hear about infighting behind the scenes, not Tom Pettys style. I do think Wildflowers anniversary album should be realeased, but not for a while.
  2. So he has two Guilds right? Both fairly identical?
  3. That makes sense has it looks like he had two Guild D25 12 strings
  4. I always have loved the guitars Tom and Mike played with. I thought it be fun to talk about that, maybe learn something new. The first two I want to start with is Tom's Guild and Gibson J200. I believe the Guild is a D25. Anyone know the year? The earliest I can find this guitar show up is around 1990 and he used it in 2017 on the 40th anniversary tour. Anyone know more about this guitar? The Gibson J200 - anyone know the year or more about it? Seems to show up in 1996 and last used during 30th anniversary in 2006. Anyone see it after 2006?
  5. I think you are right. I think GW thought it would be out before the magazine article and worded it that way. I still find it very odd that it was originally suppose to be released so soon after American Treasure and still even if released in March is not that long from American Treasure. Just doesn't seem like a Tom Petty way of doing things in my opinion.
  6. Can someone please explain this to me... Is the album The Best of Everything out yet? Articles written in the fall say it was released in November, but Amazon has it pre-order release date in March. Was it suppose to be released in November, but got pushed back until March? For Real just came out, so I dont understand how it would have been released in November. Yet if you read Mike Campbells interview with Guitar World magazine it talks about how it WAS released in November and no mention of a new song named For Real. Also, I find it strange that they are releasing another album so close to the release of American Treasure. Seems a little rushed and not planned well. Why not promote American Treasure a little more and release The Best of Everything next year?
  7. Anyone know what the Ron Blair song is that Steve played on his show last year? Sorry dont have more details but it was great.
  8. Which is why I have a hard time believing all that is his real hair. To me it looks like extensions or maybe a wig?
  9. LOL I saw that which made me ask the question. Idk It looks too perfect!

    Has anyone heard Ron's new song? Freakin awesome!!! I hope he puts out an alblum. Last year Steve played another song of Rons on his radio show last year which was great. Unfortunately, I cant find it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChDevQE6sIw&start_radio=1&list=RDChDevQE6sIw
  11. Before Tom died, I could only find 5 books on him as follows: Conversations with Tom Petty by Paul Zollo 2005 Running Down A Dream: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 2007 - Released with the 30th anniversary documentary Tom Petty Rock and Roll Guardian by Andrea Rotondo 2014 Tom Petty An American Rock and Roll Story by Nick Thomas 2014 Petty: The Biography by Warren Zanes 2016 Conversations with Tom Petty by Paul Zollo 2005 and Petty: The Biography by Warren Zanes 2016 were authorized books with Tom being interviewed for them. They are by far way better than the other ones. Running Down A Dream: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 2007 basically has alot of pictures and just follows the documentary. Since his death, I think more books have popped up, but if you want to learn something new about him read Conversations with Tom Petty by Paul Zollo 2005 and Petty: The Biography by Warren Zanes 2016.
  12. I noticed in 2014 Mike had very big dreads that made me think they werent real. Then the next year seemed smaller. I also noticed a bald spot in 2014 yet not anymore. Something doesnt seem real about it, yet it never looked like he was loosing it like Tom did in the mid 90s.
  13. Do you think Tom's hair was real all the time? It changed many times over the last 20 years and it looked think in the mid to late 90s. Mike has awesome hair, but again I what do you think? Is it real, a wig, or extensions?
  14. You think there was more friction between the two of them than we know? Im a little surprised that Tom would care so much about the DK thing when he did Mudcrutch, TW, and his radio show.
  15. Does anyone know what the real story is regarding the formation of the Dirty Knobs and why Ron and Steve left? On Steve's show the other day, he jokingly said him and Ron got banned. Was Tom against it? I thought I heard Mike say something also about making an album and Tom wasn't for it. I wonder how he felt about the Blue Stingrays?
