    Help make Tom Petty's childhood home a museum

    I was a bit surprised that the estate wouldn't want to run this for such a low buy in price. Hopefully it proceeds without drama in light of the legal disputes with the music side of things...

    Best three days.....

    It's three days "in a row" albeit in different years. The first show of June 27th easily solidified me as a lifelong fan. It was an amazing show, I was sixteen, and at Tom Petty concert with three friends, I had just gotten my licence but didn't drive there. . The Del Fuegos were amazing and I managed to catch that band several more times including the reunion tour in 2012 and saw Dan Zanes do the children's music thing a number of times including one all star performance where he had Laurie Sargent and the drummer from Morphine and a few other guests for Mothers Day. But Tom and the band were amazing. I had seen a number of shows before this; Triumph, Whitesnake and most memorably Pink Floyd, but there was something special about the Rock and Roll Caravan that hooked me and kept me interested for the rest of my life ( I don't see me losing interest in the band anytime soon.) The crowd had an amazing energy and even from the cheap lawn seats I could tell there was something different with a Petty show. There were unexpected covers - I still recall being knocked out that they played "should I stay or should I go" Runaway trains was magical and it was not a greatest hits kinda show. It was years before I know of any kind of expected set list but Tom had a way of holding the crowd in the palm of his hand. That my frined was a good time and remains one of the best shows I saw.
  5. I heard the Traveling Wiliburys "handle with care" at the hardware store (small mom and pop place) yesterday. 🎩

    Tom's childhood home might be becoming a museum!

    Not sure what drama lies beneath this one, but I've been seeing people post on the TPN page not to post the story. Not sure the back story on this but this strikes me as a very positive thing for Gainesville. Not sure if they had hoped to do a big reveal or if its somehow not a done deal. Just wanted to toss this in to the mix but I cant imagine there is not a P&S agreement and mortgage in place to get mentioned in a news paper article.... 😕
  9. If this turns out to be true it will be too cool Looks like the current owner was on TPN and the buyer arranged the deal without a realtor putting it on the market. Seems like the intent is to turn it into a Gainsville music museum! This will make it much less creepy to take pictures of the place in the future LOL https://www.gainesville.com/news/20190611/up-for-sale-tom-pettys-childhood-home?fbclid=IwAR1DOoA_TbLtXaaGsYZB11WIHf4HGFqinWrlSGuu743qfTRHEDTtgQG5NaE full article in hidden comment below.
  10. Well, this is a gift from above! (Thanks Tom!) 14 min of trippy bliss. “Crystal River” was first released on the album "Mudcrutch” in 2008. The song became the go-to show closer for the Mudcrutch tours of 2008 and 2016, which featured Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Tom Leadon, and Randall Marsh performing together for the first time since the early 1970’s. Recently Tom Leadon’s brother-in-law Curtis Cooper, along with co-Producer Kim Bauldree, created a video which features rare footage of the band performing the song at the Troubadour in Hollywood in 2008. The performance footage was originally done so that Tom Leadon’s elderly father, who was unable to attend, could see his son perform with the band. The video also includes footage from the Ichetucknee River and the song’s namesake Crystal River in Florida. Tom Leadon shared it with us, and we are now honored to present the public debut of this video. OMG That ending of the video.... 😎

    Flirting with Thyme and other Petty recipes....

    Epic! 😂🤣😂
  12. In an effort to "Shelter" the other topics, I thought I would start a new "master thread" for the Tom Petty Cookbook and other product ideas that we clearly don't want and won't buy. Keep it whimsical, keep it real, but you don't have to cook like a refugee while you are learning to fry if you don't have dog's with wings. So here is my first contribution; Flirting with Thyme rice 1 tablespoon butter 1 cup uncooked white rice 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice On Sale 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves Directions Step 1 Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, and stir in the rice. Cook rice, stirring frequently, until browned, about 5 minutes. Step 2 Mix chicken broth, lemon juice and thyme into the rice. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook 20 minutes, until liquid has been absorbed. Fluff with a fork before serving.

    What Music Are You Listening To Right Now?

    I still have a framed clipping from the local newspaper announcement for SRV. In a strange way his passing so early inspired me those many years ago to make a point of seeing people play live if I really enjoyed their work. SRV played the PA club in Garnder Ma - a tiny shithole of an outdoor venue 30 min from my home. I figured I would catch him another time and then he was gone. I caught Tom and the boys over 10x and Mudcrutch the one time they came to Boston. I've seen Jimmy Vaughan a few times too. I've lost count of how many times I saw Buddy Guy as the man is a relentless performer coming around my way at least 2-3x a year, I "only catch him" on one of those trips typically but its got to be 15-20 of his shows at this point. I don't constantly go to shows but I go as often as I reasonably can. It helps that a lot of artists I enjoy prefer smaller venues and do not command Fleetwood Mac ticket prices so I can get really good seats in a small venue for under 100 per ticket.... RIP SRV
