  1. Tacky/insensitive TPATH email?

    Surely I am not the only person who received the email regarding TPATH tour merchandise. Is it just me, or couldn't they at least have added an "RIP Tom Petty" statement? What were they thinking?
  2. Prayers for Tom Petty - 1950-2017

    Thanks, Marion, Nel, and everyone here. It's comforting to know that I am not the only one who is still in disbelief. It is still really hard for me to listen to live concerts that I attended.

    ^ Well said, Nel. I'm angry, too. Regarding Alabama, looks like it is a toss-up at this point. Time will tell.

    I absolutely love Pope Francis. After reading this, I love him even more!
  7. "Makin' Some Noise" Mudcrutch Recording from 1974

    Thanks, Susan! Thanks, Danny!
  8. Your prized Petty possessions

    LOVE the posters and photos! Thanks for sharing! I have a few things. These are my favorites: "Heartbreak in New York" vinyl record I bought circa 1979-1980: basically the Rockpalast show with a couple of minor differences. I've always gotten a kick out of the fact that "Listen to Her Heart" was listed on the sleeve with the title "She Needs a Lot of Lovin." Aside from the fact that I still love this show, I felt so naughty to own it; boots weren't really a thing during that era. Backstage pass from the Long After Dark tour. It actually worked; I came face to face with Tom backstage at the Kabuki Theater in San Francisco (April 1983). Casino chip from the Hard Rock 2001 show: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hard-Rock-Casino-Tom-Petty-The-Heart-Breakers-5-Casino-Chip-/352190036690?hash=item5200297ad2:g:70QAAOSwh2FZ35GY It was actually my husband's idea to keep one, and I'm so glad I did. Commemorative chapstick (yes, you read that right) from the 10/29/2011 Northridge KCSN benefit. Such a random souvenir, but it made me chuckle when I got it and it still makes me chuckle. Several guitar picks, including one that Mike personally handed me at the Mudcrutch Troubadour show in 2008. Memories. So. Many. Memories. My TPATH friend Matt still tells the story of how I jumped on stage in Santa Cruz (9/1/82) and kissed Tom. That night, SO many girls were jumping on stage, so I waited until security was occupied with someone else before I made my move. Of course Tom looked at my like I was crazy. However, I planted one, then jumped into the audience assuming people would catch me...which they did NOT! The next day, it was a fun time (actually, NOT) explaining to my friends at work why I had a fat lip. Susan and Beth, I would love to read your memories too.
  9. Prayers for Tom Petty - 1950-2017

    Gosh, Annakim's photos and comments are so poignant. Now I remember why I can only come to the Farm every few days during this time...still in disbelief.
  10. Classic Rock Video of the Day II

    I was at this show. I loved when Tom said "I'm talking dirty now" (approx 1:04) and all the girls screamed...
  11. Prayers for Tom Petty - 1950-2017

    Good to see you here again, Susan. I'm thankful that everyone here continues to share their thoughts and memories. For so many, Tom's death is something that has come and gone, but I still find myself coping better on some days than others.
  12. Random Thoughts Thread

    Yes, definitely. The first few days I was listening constantly. Now it is hard, although I think it may pass.
  13. Question of the day 10/14/17

    Thirtysomething. First time New Year's 1979, last time June 2013.
  14. TPATH Guests

    ^ Yes, definitely the Dandy Warhols! These are just off the top of my head: Til Tuesday The Strokes Frank Black Trey Anastasio
  15. Prayers for Tom Petty - 1950-2017

    Agreed. Aside from meeting up with many, many friends over the years, I cherish the spontaneous friends I made at so many shows. Even though we didn't exchange names or contact information, I would see them at other Bay Area shows and it was so much fun. In particular, I remember a couple I met at the Vic shows who met at a TPATH concert and got married at a TPATH concert. Super cool. I am so sad that there are many people out there who I may never see again.
