    Interesting side note to the black hole photo that has been making the rounds. I'm literally neighbors with MIT Haystack observatory which played a major role in the collection of data. Also good on Katie Bouman for creating the algorithm to make the image possible! Very cool to see Westford MA mentioned at least tangentially in this story! https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/10/us/katie-bouman-mit-black-hole-algorithm-sci-trnd/index.html

    So Mike is in Fleetwood Mac ?

    folks here are likely aware that Fleetwood Mac has canceled a few shows as of late but they were a bit quiet as to who was sick etc. Looks like Stevie had the flu but is on the mend. Unfortunately, they are canceling for Jazz Fest as replacements for the stones now too. Get well Stevie! https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/fleetwood-mac-jazz-fest-stevie-nicks-flu-819165/?fbclid=IwAR1_vR8f8qdM8CzZGh0nxN_e98OtkkH3WppO55PO_QTp5AVY7-7NnNrhWXc

    The "Fishin' Hole" song

    speaking of Andy Griffin, there is a very unusual music video that uses footage from the show for a Peaches song, F*** the pain away. Its sort of mesmerizing but definitely not SFW.

    New TPATH Releases

    I think someone misinterpreted the article / PDF the "greatest hits" refered to was the Best of Everything and not another (additional) collection. The article mentions delays in the BOE due to ongoing changes with packaging etc that caused delays in the release and the need to rework track order, mixing and the packaging that had been finalized at expense to the estate and record company.

    Tom Petty Mojo - Limited 2 CD Tour Edition 2012

    I think the 8 tracks were a Highway Companion 'exclusive download' you got if you purchased tour tickets for the Mojo tour. It came as a Mp3 download and possibly flac as well. For some odd reason I lost the first track of the download and cant find the original zip folder (9 years later that's a surprise.... how many computers have I had since then.. LOL)

    Old & new interviews with Tom & the Heartbreakers

    Good news, "Echo in the Canyon" seems to be getting wide release in June! trailer in link below. https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-news/echo-in-canyon-documentary-jakob-dylan-tom-petty-brian-wilson-817604/?fbclid=IwAR3OCLhOhmnxI7o7rnSqdqhH151jX3Gr6_wTq3R9IFWJVDiPPwnnt1tCWSE
  8. Benmont tweeted last night he is on Tal Wilkenfelds debut album too. She is followed on twitter by Ben, Steve Ferrone, Adria and Mr Buddy Guy which is pretty good company to keep.

    Looks like the PDF is back now. Grabbed this bit of it for posterity...

    Shite! I was just reading this and took a break from the PDF as it was 270 pages. A lot of vitriol in the thing and it was kind of sad to read how spiteful Adria was toward Dana. One of the big gist of this was that Jane Petty owns the copyrights to a lot of Tom's music still and Jane was more or less letting Adria speak for her. Dana at the direction of the estate plan from Tom had formed a LLC with the girls and her as the three stake holders and the girls were systematically vetoing anything Dana wanted to do. As for All the rest, the document indicated Tom had a more or less finished project, there were 10 new tracks mentioned and he had been paid something around 400K from the record company for the rights to the project. After Tom's passing the estate elected to do a deep dive and what they found was good enough for WB to offer another 500K for the rights. Ryan U was asked to do a deep dive into the archives and early demos from before going into the studio as well as new tracks or versions of the tracks were found and some post production was done by Ryan; not a full mix but enough to see what was worth pursuing- it would end up being a box set worth of material and not just a double album. Adria was sent a contract offer from WB/Reprise and immediately and without talking to Dana rejected it. She followed that up with a text to someone Ryan(?) that shredded them for trying to move this forward until she took control of the estate. Adria was painted as an out of control, control freak saying essentially only she could properly manage the music and legacy and she claimed she would control the music as of April 1 this year. there was a ton of bickering about using 'Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' for both collections with Adria saying it should be only 'Tom Petty' to capitalize on the loss of her dad, there was also a big part covering how Adria was insisting on a forward for the box set with Dana and the band and Dana seemed opposed to it. as for TBE it was delayed in part from Adria making changes but also the record company wanted to wait so as not to hurt sales, in the end its one sided as it is from Dana and was produced the whole thing is sad and its partly about the money, partly about the legacy and a lot of it is about control and power. T think they all loved Tom and want to honor his legacy but fundamentally disagree on how to do that and it seems there is a lot of bad blood now between the girls and Dana. I expect this will not resolve quickly and beyond what I wrote above they were looking at milestone years for DTT, FMF and WF as having special releases to commemorate 40 30 and 25 year milestones to celebrate the music and light a fire under catalog sales. I would be very surprised to see All the Rest any time soon now.

    I'm really heartbroken to hear about the strife between Dana and Tom's daughters. In the video from the club house Adria said how "leave Virginia alone' was her favorite song by her Dad. By all accounts Dana has seemed like an upstanding loving partner that has honored his legacy. I think this is the article I saw last night on my phone but its not as detailed and it mentioned a counter-suit and specifics about the lawsuit surrounding this mess. This is nearly as sad as losing Tom in the first place. The article made the point that the delays on the Best of everything was due to Adria making changes repeatedly at great cost etc which likely explains the changing timelines of that release. I would really rather give up that collection and have seen a proper release of All The Rest which was clearly one of Toms biggest passion projects. https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/legal-and-management/8505405/tom-petty-widow-daughters-estate-legal-battle EDIT This was the link that I saw last night. I hate FB and how it closes things on the phone without leaving a bookmark etc. https://theblast.com/tom-petty-widow-daughters-music-trust/

    from the second article listed above: Its the DTT cover for gods sake. Can this be a real story??? I cant imagine he girls dont want All the Rest released as it seemed to clearly be a passion project of their Dads...

    Double twist, one of the participants in the polyamorus relationship is the ghost of a pirate... Congratulations TomFest! 35 is a great run in the days of 50% divorce rates.

    Songs not on Normal Albums

    some would argue against this statement with the existence of Girl on LSD - I personally get a kick out of the song and have been doing some "shower thoughts" on track listing / mixing for All the rest with what we have released now. My thinking would be that Girl on LSD makes the cut but as a "hidden track" with a few minutes of silence ahead of this song coming on like other artists have done (Beck) from time to time back in that era.

    Question of the day: 2019-04-01

    Nope. If I do that the darn dogs just try harder to get in. LOL - although with 3 cats and 2 dogs in the house to go with the three other people I guess I am rarely home alone if ever...
