  1. I'm trying to think of great art and eloquent words. A great profile of a band at work in this video, shows all Heartbreakers doing what they do best.
  2. Very sad to see this. I remember Greg setting up the vocal mics prior to the shows I was at in 2014, the routine he had checking the microphones on stage, instead of saying ''testing 1 2 3'' into the microphones he always said ''Dude'' ''Main Dude'' ''Dude Spare'' which I always liked at the time! 😀 Condolences to all who knew him.
  3. I know the 2013 audio of this one has been posted, here is the 2014 Hypnotic Eye tour version of I'm Not Your Stepping Stone from the Honda Centre Anaheim CA played as a tribute to Paul Revere who had passed away a few days previous. It was my birthday and I was there, it's great to have these memories to look back on. 😀
  4. Stop Draggin My Heart Around getting a spin here on Today FM tonight in Ireland. 😀
  5. Love these covers of Louisiana Rain & Magnolia from Margot Cotton a singer songwriter from France. Other Tom Petty covers on her youtube also. 😀
  6. Steve Ferrone & Friends bring a jazz lounge type flavor to Joe & Angel Dream 😀
  7. Little Red Rooster got a spin on RTE Radio 1 here in Ireland yesterday night around 11.20pm, it was actually requested by two separate people who contacted the radio show in response to a request for Christmas songs that listeners wanted to hear. Yes people, Ireland loves Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. 🥰
  8. A very welcome double play at around 1.30am this week on RTE radio 1 in Ireland of 'Something In The Air' and 'Learning To Fly,' a timely reminder of how great a job they did on that Thunderclap Newman cover, it had gone under the radar for me for a while. 😀
  9. Well, I've reached the conclusion of The Soprano's six seasons. American Girl turned up half way through the second episode of Season 6 when Tony Soprano was fighting for his life in a hospital bed after being shot by his uncle Junior and his wife Carmela was reminiscing at the bedside to her unconscious husband about the time as youngsters that they went down to Long Island beach and ''you had this song playing all the time we were down there'' as she played it on the Sony CD/Cassette/Radio in the hospital room. The full song played but you could tell that they had to do a couple of takes of that scene as they had to 'splice and dice' the song together a bit about two thirds way through. So Tony Soprano was a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers fan ladies and gentlemen! I wonder did he pay for the album? For me the first five seasons were top notch, season 6 (which i learned after was recorded 3 years after season 5) flagged a bit and for me the natural conclusion would have been for Tony to be assassinated by either the Brooklyn crew or one of the new breed 'gangsta rap' criminal crews. If he would have being gunned down in a hail of bullets as he waddled out in white bathrobe to collect the morning papers from the front driveway with 'Rhino Skin' the musical outro. Fantastic use of music snippets throughout the whole series, they all fitted the scenes/mood perfectly in all instances. I must look up all the music that was used. I particularly liked the opening scene in episode 1 season 5, music and visuals used to great effect! Oh, there's a part 2 to season 6, have to find episodes 13 - 21! 😀
  10. I'm still on Cloud 9 after Neil & Bob. Bob was on one of his 'ON' nights! Privileged to have been there! 🙂 Bob's band were sensational and the man has a presence/aura on stage that is unique when you witness it in person.

    The best of luck in your recovery nurk. Keep on rockin in the free world! 😀
  12. I'm a late arrival to the greatness that is The Sopranos series starring James Gandolfini. I'm working my way through the boxset. Heard a snippet of Free Fallin' about two thirds way through the final episode of Season 2! 😀
  13. 🔆 I'm still speechless with a grin on my face since Sunday 🔅
  14. So my first show since I last saw TPATHB which was the last night of the 2014 HE tour on October 11th 2014 at The Forum LA, is actually going to be Neil Young (playing with Promise of The Real) and Bob Dylan on July 14th 2019 upcoming at Nolan Park Kilkenny Ireland. Looking forward to it, and for me its a kinda fitting way for it to be the first next show i'll actually be at after the last Tom and the Heartbreakers show I saw which was actually the last live music show I have actually been to. I'll report back here after the show how I experienced it! 😀 Keep on rockin in the free world while you still can everyone! 😀
  15. Breakdown got a spin on Radio Nova here in Dublin Ireland yesterday evening as I was walking home. 😀
