    I bought that album back in the day just for this song.
    Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane.

    You have to go to 1:16:39 for the song:

    I don't know if there's a single performance to point it but there are tours, two to my mind where one can get the best live versions; not with about a thirty second to minute solo and some climatic noise for the big wrap-up but where the band extended the song.
    The Wildflowers Tour: Usually begun with Benmont's solo, offering a little atmosphere before the song kicks in. Very moody jams.
    The Last Dj Tour: Usually begun with Tom doing some kind of "Dj speech" leading to long versions with a lot of atmosphere and then launching into a double time outro. Fantastic!
    Is there a particular version you enjoy? The one from the Homecoming '93 show? Acoustic at Stan's last performance with the band? The slightly longer version minus the big jams that became the standard over the years? The all kazoo version?
    cheers

    I think Tom's health was declining for a while, and possibly had other medical conditions than the ones that was announced.     Also, in a previous post, I too noticed the "shaking" and "twitching" on that Music Cares video - but perhaps that also could have been caused by some of the meds he was taking....just a thought.

    I'm sure this has been posted on here before.  I didn't know where to post it, so I'm using this old thread of mine because this brought tears to my eyes too.
    This is one of my very favorite Tom songs.

    This is why I love cds, records, books you hold in your hand; I feel for ya, it stinks that they can do that and all those tunes are lost.

    I tried to find a good color picture that shows his eyes because Tom had beautiful eyes as well as a beautiful smile.  This is the best I could find.

    That's not bad.  I've known people to pay from $2,000 to almost $4,000.00 for a first row ticket to a band concert.

    I enjoy making glitch art of album covers. I take a picture of an album cover and then deliberately mess up or corrupt the file to create neat effects. See as such:

    ^^   I agree too. The Grammys, Academy Awards, Emmy's, Tony's, Country Music Awards, Golden Globes and all the others are awards for your accomplishments and being the best at what you do. When you cry that not enough women, men, whites, blacks, Latino's, Asians and everyone else don't get enough awards, you are dividing the country more than it already is. If you want to get political, go tell your story to the major news networks and then run for office, not at an awards show! If I was a sponsor of these shows, I'd pull my money out and there would be no televised shows on national TV. The winners would be announced in the newspapers and their trophy would be sent to them in the mail. I rest my case!!

    Neither would I, but others do.  I'm from the old days when concert tickets were $5.  When they went up to $20, I thought that was too much.  Those days are long gone.  I think the cost of concert tickets today is outrageous.

    Lorra got a reaction from GlitterSmith in Coroner's Report/Petty Family Update   
    I love that interview too.  Gave me a good laugh.  But do you know what impressed me the most about it?  When Tom asked where his wife was.  I thought that he must really love her.
    A few months ago I read elsewhere on the internet a post from someone who had become disillusioned with so many famous people and the person asked if there was no one genuinely nice in the industry.  One of the few mentioned by someone who purported to be "in the know" was Tom Petty.
