  1. Close your eyes and listen to that chorus on Running Down a Dream. You can almost swear you hear Tom in there.
  2. Coroner's Report/Petty Family Update

    I'm glad the family made a statement, though they certainly didn't have to. At least he went unknowingly and peacefully. I'm just some random guy from Texas but I wish much love, happiness, and healing on his family and friends.
  3. Dog on the Run in 1978 -- a much different song than "Dogs on the Run" from Southern Accents.
  4. Still listening to only Tom Petty music daily

    I stopped listening for a little while. But death is a part of life. The music is still good so I'm still listening.
  5. Come on Down to My House! I've never heard a recording of that one live.
  6. Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    Ah yes that is it Marion! Hidden right in plain sight. I could never afford Playback before I started just streaming all my music. Thanks!
  7. Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    Oh I haven't heard I Don't Belong in forever. That was an Echo outtake, right? There was some other lost track, the title of which I can't remember. It is about a guy and a girl who meet, the lyrics are "he thought she was pretty good looking", a couple more verses then "she thought he was pretty good looking". It was a pretty rough recording from what I remember, but sadly I lost that file a long time ago. Anyone remember this?

    There is a fascinating thread about this topic on another forum: http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/tom-pettys-wildflowers.128994/page-6
  9. A Secret of the Last Dj...

    Interesting... what kind of secret?
  10. Thank you for sharing! I probably wouldn’t have known otherwise. It was a nice drive home yesterday listening to Buried Treasure.
  11. Thank you for posting. I love hearing from Mike. He has always been so interesting to me.
  12. Oh yeah, that is a big one! I guess all this is why tickets are so expensive.
  13. Interesting. That comes out to $95.66 in average revenue per ticket sold. That 61 million has to pay for marketing, the band, hotels, crew, transportation, food, stage, lighting, equipment, taxes, etc. I'd be curious to know what the band made when all is said and done.
  14. Tom Petty one man band

    Years ago I saw a post mentioning Tom appeared on a show as a one man band. I never could find a video of it. Maybe it Garry Shandling's show or something. Does anyone know if this is true - and more importantly - is there video?
