  1. https://livepetty.com/1974-75-demos/ that is there as well. Did not realize it was on this too... There are a handful of other downloads mostly singles on the livepetty.com site for mudcructh and last I checked on DK show...
  2. I managed to sneak in to the store today. Don't have time to write too much out but I got a little closer to a price on the store today... Bob says "Give me 2,000 dollars and its yours." I immediately begin protesting that its not a real price and he says "you didn't let me finish. 2000 down and you can make payments." Paul who up to now has been the quite one, says. "Please buy this place so I can work for you instead of him.. " he then proceeds to tell me three killer jokes which I may have to try and write out later. Especially the Chicken one.... Slightly off color but not too raunchy...
  3. Fine I withdraw my welcome and my lack of manners then... Shoot, supposed to respect my elders.... Well then welcome back and as they say up north Sorrieey.(sorry) As Canadians are apt to apologize randomly....
  4. wow that is a gorgeous guitar!!!
  5. very, very glad to hear this Nurk! Congratulations and keep on recovering!
  6. Wow, @Shelter you lost me with the 'new font' quote from the article above the last one.. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ I did not recall reading that comment today. I for one think its great that they are coming out with an expanded edition. The original was starting to climb in price like the OG Vinyl Wildflowers. As a serious music fanboy and fan of the original book which I only have as a Kindle I'm thrilled to be expecting a hardcover book shortly. Sadly the Petty girls do petty a little too well not to mention petulant. Still waiting on 'all the rest.' most likely that will end up on my tombstone...
  7. I did "like" their post... but yes, my manners are lacking.... Welcome to @The_Last_DJ how did you find this little one story town?
  8. shipping soon... https://americansongwriter.com/tom-petty-book-conversations-with-tom-petty-expanded-editon/paul-zollo/?fbclid=IwAR18FSIZvb8WiKnk76dTKuxLQk7mUDnbwEQhuPKFyiblELosYTTtLciiOOY Text of article in spoiler hidden comments below.
  9. these guys strike me as a band that could make it big... Just a garage band now but I hear that they are touring soon.... the lead singer seems to have developed a bit of swagger. Its like he deconstructed the tune to bare bones and made it new again not something a lot of up and coming bands can do with such a great song. I might go see them live and see if this Campbell guy lives up to the hype.... πŸ˜ŽπŸ’˜ https://www.facebook.com/MikeCampbellOfficial/videos/480478089317382/
  10. anyone search to see if Mike or the DK have a youtube page? It kills me these are 59 seconds...
  11. you might want to wander over to the live petty site... specifically this link... https://livepetty.com/mudcrutch-and-solo-petty-outtakes-1973-1977/ 😎 thought something seemed familiar about the track...
  12. not to get too far ahead of myself in the story we did that on Saturday ourselves and it was amazing! Getting ready for grad school which starts Saturday for me so its been crazy busy with getting stuff organized so not too much time to write this up... My wife heads to Berlin for her MBA class and comes home Monday so its going to get weird at home again its like the perfect storm, my oldest starts classes tomorrow, my youngest has mid terms and short days and with my wife away I get to deal with all the weirdness in the schdule with drop off at school for 830 and pick up at 11 something..... 😲 so I have to squeeze my day into the spaces in between that... and of course nobody told us Mid terms were coming so all sorts of last minute appointments are going off at the moment... its like the old chineese curse of may you live in interesting times...
  13. Oh my god.. Legends was soo much fun. Just an amazing vibe from the crowd. so those of you that are not fans of Dr Buddy Guy (more on that shortly) every year for decades he has done a stint of shows at his Chicago club in January. Think of Tom at the Fillmore but if Tom owned the Fillmore. He does a Thursday, Fri, Sat and Sun set late in the evening. Doors open anywhere from 11-noon and the crowd lines up as early as 5:30 am some days waits outside in the cold and then stays from 11am until around 1-1:30 am. As I mentioned in my earlier post its a bucket list thing for me and has been on my to do since about Y2K. I'd been to Legends once before and had the pleasure of seeing Linsey Alexander in 2015, if you have ever seen Buddy he is showman and story teller, he could do a stand up act and not bomb if he wanted to. I've been a Buddy Fan since discovering him in 1989 or so via a Stevie Ray Vaughan bootleg where Stevie does a cover of Mary Had A little lamb and says you love Buddy Guy? I sure do! and then plays a second cover of BG. Coincidentally Legends Opened in 1989 but he was doing these residencies even before that club opened at the old Checkerboard Lounge. I first caught Buddy in 1993 when he made his comeback album on Silvertone records and his performance at Lupo's Heartbreak hotel made me a fan for life. I've since caught Buddy over 20 times, probably over 30 after the two nights at Legends even at 83 going on 84 he has a touring schedule that takes him to my area in MA at least twice a year often more not that I can afford to see him every single time. As he has aged he has not slowed down too much all things considered and as I understand it he is headed to New Zealand shortly and then on to China and Japan before hitting Euorpe on his way back to the US to start his next world tour again so there has never been a need to see him at his club aside for the fact the man is a legend and seeing him in a small room on a small stage held a lot of appeal. Buddy is not like the Heartbreakers playing stadiums and arenas all the time He has for sure done crowds over 20K-30K but normally he is at a venue that can seat between 700-3K depending on the venue. Enough background... We flew out of Boston around 1145 on Friday and between Thursday night and that time things changed a lot weather wise. Instead of the 40 degree temps and partly cloudy sky nearby Wisconsin was under blizzard watch. Chicago was getting 2-6" of snow followed by an ice storm that could leave 1" of ice and bitter cold. The forcast I had heard called for sneakers and guess what I was wearing as the captain announced we were trying to push back early to get in ahead of the snow... We landed and took the CTA down from O'hare and were in Downtown 45 min later and at the hotel across from Grant park a short walk later. As luck would have it our hotel was literately across the street from the club. By 4pm or so we were all settled in to the hotel and hungry for dinner. We had planned on deep dish pizza nearby at one of the Gino’s East is my GOAT Chicago pizza but was on the other side of town so we planned on the nearby Lou Malnati's Pizzeria we popped our head into Legends first and damn near never left. First of all I have an odd tendency to be an introverted extrovert. Get me into my element and I become an extrovert. we are happy to squat at home and hang out and are not social butterfly's, not normally anyhow. The crowd at legends was just different, almost like I was back in Boston at Cheer's where legit everybody knows your name. Nearly everyone I spoke with at the tables had been there year on year for 5-7 years and the folks at the tables tend to go back religiously each year and all know each other as they spend 12 or so hours hanging out listening to live music drinking beer and eating Cajun/Louisiana BBQ cooked perfectly. They have an acoustic set early in the day around 1pm on weekdays and Sundays and live music for the rest of the day with occasional breaks so you can chat with your neighbors. The couple we had sat with the first night had gone into line at 11am and had been there since then. They were hysterically funny with a cutting sarcastic wit that was just right. At one point I joked with my new friend that she should try out for Second City. She stopped what she was doing and looked me dead-ass in the eye and said 'what did you say? I just started a class there last week....' It turns out she was a writer too, had left her job about 6 months ago and was tying loads of new things. Eerily like me... they had been to 5 shows over the years but normally are part of the standing room only crowd. I ended up talking to dozens of people that night form all over the world (there were people from England, Germany, Italy and Oz there in addition to many states). Toward the end of the night I ran into Linsey Alexander at the bar who I had seen play back in 2015 and he ended up playing a set the next night. (it turns out according to the Johnny the MC; Linsey is the old uncle that shows up unexpected at Thanksgiving and never leaves, as he is there 6 nights a week most weeks but he is an amazing performer and I ended up talking to him several times over the next few nights.) More on the night later as I have to get my day moving...
  14. I hate you. you may be right but I can't imagine Ben going to Gainesville lets say so far from home and not getting on stage for a few songs... there is too much a preformer in him. And he is going to love being on a small stage like he was in Mudcrutch. The DK are different enough from the solo stuff he is doing that he is sure to want to be out there playing with his friend he has not played with in a few years that he spent his entire life playing with... excuse me if I dream time to time....
  15. I've been geeking out over this since Ben posted this the other day. I was away so could not share it until now. Below is from Ben's Instagram feed.. this screen cap was taken on Friday early on.. Sounds like Ben plans to be on part of the tour after the april dates. Hopefully where Boston ahs two dates and given the history the band has with my hometown....
