    Let's Try to Make Southern Accents Great Again

    I absolutely love Magnolia. I listen to it all the time. It's one of Tom's most romantic songs and I love the way he tells the story as if we're watching a movie. It's epic and intimate at the same time. And the backing vocals are amazing. I never understood why there wasn't more love for that song!

    New TPATH Releases

    Thanks for the links, guys! But an album would be nice, a new release. I knew about the video but good luck finding it today! I don't own a VCR anyway...

    New TPATH Releases

    I'd love to have an official release of the True Confessions Tour with Bob Dylan. Maybe one day in Dylan's Bootleg Series...

    "...with a sausage"

    Those games remind me of a game I played on the internet a few years ago when it was first announced that Bob Dylan was going to release a Christmas album. The idea was to come up with the song titles... I came up with these : -A Hard Reindeer's a-Gonna Fall -The Lonesome Death Of Christmas Carol -Just Like a Snowman -Snowin' in the Wind -Girl From the North Pole -One Too Many Christmas Mornings -Sleigh Lady, Sleigh -If You See Her, Say Ho-Ho-Ho -Romance In Bethlehem -With Santa On Our Side -You Wanna Jingle -Desolation Snow -Stuck inside the Chim'ney With the Christmas Blues Again -Reindeer Skin Pill Box Hat -It's Alright Ma, It's Only Rudolph -Ho-ho-house of the Risin’ Sun -Sad Eyed Lady Of the Snowland -All the Tired Reindeers -Shelter From the Snow Storm -Positively North Pole -Santa, Let Me Follow You Down -Claus Line Saga -Trust Your Elf -Eggnog For You -It Ain't Myrrh, Babe

  6. Hi everybody, I was just watching the 1986 legal thriller / comedy "Legal Eagles", directed by Ivan Reitman, starring Robert Redford, Debra Winger and Daryl Hannah. Not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but still entertaining. At one point in the film, Redford's teenage daughter is about to leave the apartment and Redford hands her out her briefcase. It's a big school briefcase with the cover of "Damn the Torpedoes" on the front. I'd never seen such merchandising before. And I was wondering about that. A big Tom Petty album cover on a child's briefcase? I didn't even have any idea that this existed. Or maybe the kid had cut out the cover of the album and pasted it on a regular briefcase? Not sure about that, just a theory... (It's a "blink and you'll miss it" moment in the film...) Still, cool kid! Has anybody seen other weird or rare TP-related items?

    Hi I'm new.....

    Tom was a giant but a very discreet and humble giant. When he passed away last year, I told many of my friends how sad I was. I live in Europe (in Belgium) but still... a lot of them had no idea who Tom Petty was. Bowie, Prince... of course. But Tom? Not a clue. I need better friends. In a way, I envy you, MaryJane0612. There's a whole world out there for you to discover.

    The new guy is touring with Dire Straights Legacy

    As I understand, it's not "4 founding members without Mark Knopfler", it's 1 founding member (Alan Clark on keyboards) with various touring musicians.

    I Feel Like A Forgotten Song

    No love for Magnolia? I love that song. It's so simple and so romantic...

    New interview with Benmont

    Incredible interview. You feel the love and admiration Benmont has for all his bandmates, especially Stan and Howie. I love the "Elvis in Bondage" story. 🤣 I was shocked to hear about Benmont's cancer scare, but he seems to be ok. And hopefully will be for a long long time.

    23 Things You Might Not Know About Tom Petty

    6- Tom Petty was best known as the legendary frontman of the band Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. That one I knew. Actually, I knew them all. Did he really took guitar lessons from Don Felder, though?

    What do you think of Hypnotic Eye four years later?

    I just love it. It's high on my list of their all-time best albums. It's actually one of TP's albums that I've listened to the most. With Mudcrutch 2. His last two albums are two of my favorites. Tom really went out on top. I'm a 40 year old man dancing and jumping like an idiot on Fault Lines... When Hypnotic Eye was released, I just couldn't stop playing it. Every day. That did not happen with Mojo.

    On 1993’s Greatest Hits

    Greatest Hits was my first TP album too. And I still can't tell if that's really Stan on the front cover. I was 16 in 1993, that's when I really started to get interested in music. At that time, I was a huge Beach Boys and Doors fan. Still am. About a year after Greatest Hits' release, I had bought all of Tom's back catalogue. Including Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1 & 3 who became my all-time favorites. It's really funny now, to think that I became interested in Bob Dylan thanks to the Traveling Wilburys... So, after buying Tom's back catalogue, Bob was next. It took me a while longer to buy all of his albums... Then around 1998, I bought a Frank Zappa Greatest Hits because I thought he was funny on the cover. And I never looked back. 20 years later, I've finally collected Zappa's entire (official) catalogue...

    The firing of Stan Lynch

    Yes. We're not on a Beach Boys forum here. We're polite, friendly and respectful. I've been to the Smiley Smile forum a few times... and God are those Beach Boys fans, the pro-Wilsons vs. the pro-Love, savage, cruel and scary.

    The firing of Stan Lynch

    I wonder if Tom ever asked Ringo Starr to join the Heartbreakers! That would have been amazing... 😜
