  1. So Mike is in Fleetwood Mac ?

    I am quite disappointed, I must admit, just from where I am standing. Shelter said it well, so I won't spend long writing about it, but for one I was really hopeful that Mike will be... well, free. That Mike will go a total free creative way, into the grittier, rockier sound. Just working with different, talented people, stretching out, being his fantastic creative self. I also understood this as just joining for the tour... and I hope that will end up being the case. Because, really: petty (pun not intended) full of drama band on one hand that (to me) has not sounded anywhere near great since Peter Green's exit - on another, a creative, off the wall humble artist that spent 40 years being loyal, discreet and kind. I just don't get it, and it makes me cranky.
  2. Question of the day 3/28/18

    ^ man these are proper treasures!
  3. Question of the day 3/12/18

    Seen them only once, unfortunately, so my only venue is my best venue: O2 Arena, Hamburg 2012.
  4. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    Love how well you expressed what I was thinking but was unable to put in words with such a flair I would go a step further and just say that I would like to see not just Tom but his whole band (of introverts) as the ones that did not let the business machine outgrow their artistic vision, and stay consistent to what they have always been. That's why I think, let them grieve. Who can think of putting out stuff when they first try to get over the death of someone they loved? First that personal relationship. Then, art. Then, public. I guess my argument for that is also not very good, as it simply just makes me love this band
  5. When are we going to get some stuff ?

    The thing about this band is that, at times it felt more like a family than a band. They worked hard but their feeling together has always been a very important, integral part of who they were as a band. So now they are grieving, literally more like a family and friends than a business unit and I bet until they are over the worst of it, we won't see anything. And I would not wanna rush them. That's my 2 cents.
  6. Mike and his guitars.

    Yeah would be awesome if they put it out officially and raised money for doggies that way. I would buy immediately
  7. Tributes and covers from peers and writers

    I loved listening to your podcast, Carl. I am still listening to it as I write that. I can hear the emotion in your voice, and you are so well spoken! I can understand how as a man you can still resonate with American Girl. That's the universal message of Tom's lyrics, they really are meant for everyone and no one in particular... So personal - his music brings us onto these personal journeys - and yet, anyone can resonate and relate. This builds the family of love around it, people that traveled their lives to the soundtrack of Tom's and Heartbreakers' sensitivity. I love your podcast, I am so glad you recorded it and shared it. So honest and well put. It made me want to share my few words that I wrote on my blog this January. I am not a long term fan, but I really love them deeply now. It's not as well put as your work, but what the hell.. It's my tribute. I am not a native English speaker but I hope it reflects what I wanted to get across: https://traceofheaven.com/2018/01/09/delayed-tears-slowly-come-tom-petty-weareheartbreakers-with-broken-hearts/
  8. Can someone share a Dirty Knobs show?

  9. City Winery 6-11-15- Review with videos

  10. The Knobs @ Imperial Ball (with Tom Petty Tribute!!)

    I am late to comment... but this tribute literally melted my heart, and has been melting my heart for days as I kept on re-listening.. I wish I could be there. Just from listening to recorded mp3 and videos, it was perfect. it did sound like Mike's voice was cracking with emotion on some verses, and during that little speech before.. but it must have been cathartic.. if difficult. It's so loving. and beautiful. I love Mike. I want the healing to continue for him <3
  11. Knobs outside of California?

    Thank you all
  12. Can someone share a Dirty Knobs show?

  13. My Husband

    My dad has this surgery (4 bypasses) last October... 2nd of October 2017... that was such a stressful day! I hope your husband is getting better and better all the time
  14. I am a relatively new fan of the Dirty Knobs so I don't really know that.. Have they ever played anywhere else other than California? I am a European fan.. who will happen to be in Florida this year. My first US trip! I was just curious, what are my chances of catching the Knobs anywhere outside of Cali? All responses appreciated!
  15. Can someone share a Dirty Knobs show?

    I would also be interested to hear from the Dirty Knobs.. I live in Europe. At the moment there is zero chance that I would be able to go to their show. As Marion said, I really really like them as a band in itself, what I was able to hear from them so far anyway. I think Mike sings in a very bluesy, Mike way, nothing like Tom. I love what they do. I love the club band feel they have. Bar band. I would love to hear more!
