  1. I'm a little surprised there isn't a thread here yet. there seems to be an announcement coming today from the official website. Im guessing a book of some sort as it lists the Andy Tennille collection 2018... Any thoughts on this?

  4. Randomly came across "running down a dream" on the radio yesterday. Was nice to hear it on the radio and I actually had to go back to it as I was doing my quick run through the pre-sets and it took me a second to realize what I had almost missed. 😄

    The Petty Coat Of Arms

    this just screams for a modern makeover tribute to Tom. Logo in the crest, guitar on the sash and some "Alice" inspired spades from a deck of cards as a starting point. Wish I was a graphic artist sometimes... thanks for sharing!

    Tom Leadon interview from 10/18

    above is the audio link from an interview with Tom Leadon. WUFT 89.1 / 90.1 Morning Edition host, Glenn Richards, spoke with singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Leadon. For over an hour, Leadon talked about returning to Gainesville to celebrate the life and music of his childhood friend and former band-mate, Tom Petty, including a deep-dive into the 2007 Mudcrutch reunion. Along with Randall Marsh, Tom Leadon was a founding member of the Gainesville band Mudcrutch with future Heartbreakers Tom Petty and Mike Campbell. Heartbreaker Benmont Tench joined Mudcrutch after Tom Leadon left in 1972, when he moved to Los Angeles where his brother, Bernie Leadon, had recently formed the Eagles. Tom Leadon also played with Linda Ronstadt, Johnny Rivers, and the country-rock band Silver — whose 1976 hit song “Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang” — was featured in the movie and on the soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Leadon lives in Nashville where he works as a professional songwriter and guitar instructor. He will be returning to Gainesville October 19 and 20 with his band, The Bayjacks, performing two shows at Heartwood Soundstage for the Tom Petty Birthday Weekend. They also plan to attend the dedication of Tom Petty Park (formerly Northeast Park) on Saturday afternoon at 1:30. It’s all part of a host of events in Gainesville and Ocala celebrating Tom Petty including the Tom Petty Birthday Bash at Depot Park, the Tom Petty Birthday Concert at Reilly Arts Center, History Bike Gainesville’s Tom Petty Tour, the release of several Tom Petty-inspired beers by local breweries, and more. Thomas Earl Petty: October 20, 1950 – October 2, 2017. A song written to recently departed Tom Petty (2017), by his long-time close friend and band-mate with Mudcrutch and The Epics, Tom Leadon.

    Question on Tom Petty Book

    this was posted by Paul Zollo today on TPN! Paul Zollo shared a link. 13 hrs Hey TPN ! it is such a LONG time in coming - but I am here at last to say - YAY! Conversations is officially about to be reborn! You are all mentioned in this press release. Thank you for your love of Tom - of the book - of rock and roll -and friendship forever. || ___________________________ At long last! I am thrilled and honored to announce "Conversations with Tom Petty" = published back in 2005 - is now officially being reborn. It will be published in the fall of 2019. A new edition of the book - with some extra material (including a new expansive opening chapter that takes in Tom's whole career) It will also have all the photos Tom & Dana chose for the original, as well as new photos, including those I took of a very exultant Tom at his last show, 9.25.17 at the Hollywood Bowl. When Tom left us, the book sold out quickly. Suddenly people were selling them for $800 on E-Bay. (My brother volunteered to sell his). The publisher - Omnibus - was in NY but is now in London, but they were keen to do it right away. But Tom and I shared authorship and the copyright - which I was proud to do. So I needed to get the okay of Dana. And to make that happen - just as she made all my interviews with Tom happen - since before the book and after - Mary Klauzer took over- (Mary, with Tony Dimitriades, managed Tom for his entire career- with good reason - they are very great) Mary gently put everything in place. Doing the book, Tom was forever brightened anytime Dana would come in - or if her name was spoken. She really helped him enjoy life in a way he hadn't before.So it is especially heartwarming for me after all this time - and this time missing Tom - to get to give this book a new life with Dana's blessing. Thank you forever Dana York Petty. And giant thanks to all the Tom Petty Nation family of fans and friends - we mentioned you in the press release. So many of you have kindly and patiently written me : Dude - like WHEN ALREADY? And I did not want to wreck the deal! Not easy for me. Thank you all for caring -and for waving Tom & The Heartbreakers flag faithfully for so many years.

    2019 speculation

    Let's Try to Make Southern Accents Great Again

    have they ever done a stripped down version of Don't come around here no more? Every live version I've heard has the typical build up and bold sound... I'm wondering if a more subdued version would have fit in southern accents.. or at least take out the sitar... otherwise one might advocate @High Grass Dog's playlist above, remove DCAHNM and drop in Surrender so it finally sees an actual album release and hold DCAHNM for the next album so it gets proper exposure to the universe.

    Dirty Knobs

    you know it kind of bothers me that Tom brought back Mudcrutch but begrudged Mike having the DK..... Don't get me wrong I love the two mudcrutch albums that they released and one of my favorite shows of all times was seeing Mudcrutch at the HOB Boston, its not like I was going to get a chance to see TP in a club around boston again otherwise..... I'd really love to see the DK have some success and I didnt realize Ron and the new guys were part of the DK before... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zmvt7yFTtt8

    Let's Try to Make Southern Accents Great Again

    You almost need to drop Don't come around here no more.... listening to this tracking now and it's jarring how out of place the horns are on that song with this track list. I really like the song too, but I also like Marys car as I always found it a simple sweet song, almost like background noise....

    Tom Petty called...

    I think you found the perfect opening act for the Dirty Knobs national tour... I don't have spotify and there is very little on youtube so i made a rare blind buy on iTunes and its a pretty darn good vibe to the album! Not a bad investment for under $9....
