  1. Tour history 1976 - 2017

    👎 Enough said.
  2. I felt like playing some vinyl today so I started to look through some of my Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers collection and I came across this album. I don't think I ever played it before but I put it on the record player today and it sounds amazing! I think it might have been one Johni brought me from England but I'm not sure. Heck, I might have bought it on EBay way back when. It's just so cool and just what I needed today, a little Tom Refugee and The Beach Bums! LOL!!
  3. Yes, looking back I see that I have it too. It was one of the first boots I ever got and one of my favorite shows. This show was in Jacksonville, FL right in my state and I missed it. I wish I had seen them play on that tour. I love hearing Stan and Howie sing backup, plus Stan was a really good live drummer. I wonder how Stan Lynch is feeling about now.

  8. Question of the day 10/14/17

    I think the internet has drawn more people together and made it possible to make travel plans. That is how I met all of you! Before that it was keeping in touch with other fans by writing letters. I have a friend who has been around long enough to have had Tom Petty pen pals and she collected her bootlegs by seeing ads in music magazines and ordering them through the mail. The boots were on cassette tapes. It took weeks to get information! And the fan club sent out newsletters through the mail. The internet changed the whole game. And now we are mourning together. 😟

  10. Question of the day 10/14/17

    Here are my first and last concert tickets. September 21st and September 22nd. Funny, the Hollywood Bowl ticket looks like it says $69.50 but that's $269.00!! How crazy is that? Both shows were not close to the stage but they were highest energy and amazing shows. They will always hold a special place in my heart Here are some of the other cities I've traveled to. I've have gone to some of these cities several times and in different venues. Man, I'm going to miss this band so much! What a wild ride with some amazing friends Tampa, Fl Santa Barbara, CA Boston, MA Atlanta, GA Holmdel, NJ Camden, NJ Bristol, VA Raleigh, NC & Charlotte, NC Los Angeles, CA (multiple locations) Chicago, IL Milwaukee, WI Memphis, TN Daytona, FL Ft. Meyers, FL Morrison, CO Gainesville, FL San Diego, CA Ventura, CA Philadelphia, PA Omaha, NE Kansas City Orlando, Fl

  14. Question of the day 10/24/17

    Meeting up with friends and the music! I'm always blown away by the music and the fans reaction to it. I love being connected to other fans and hearing the whole room sing those songs! It makes for a cosmic feeling of joy and happiness. I don't think any other band will ever give me that feeling.
