Tom is a sexist

Recommended Posts

The documentary was about the band and their music, not a soap opera about their personal lives. One just has to listen to Tom's songs to know he loves women and "gets" them. I admire Tom not talking about his ex-wife and airing dirty laundry. And I don't believe that because Dana is beautiful, that makes Tom a sexist.

I think it's a pretty dumb article.

(End of rant)

Oh my, that's what happens when it's summer and there's no professional journalist around and/or there's nothing else to write about.

At least she got neither a tweet nor a like. Hope it stays that way.

Yeah. It's stupid. I think it's more about the writer's perception than the subject matter. She obviously doesn't know anything about song writing; ironic given that she is a writer. ......Whatevverrrr.

It is so hard to get anything published and then when a piece of crap turns up it makes me wonder - what the hell?

Instead of looking at Yom's insightful and beautiful lyrics -- this author stays on the surface, does no homework and writes a piece of innane crap.

The piece is innane.

I have the same feeling when I see not-very-well-done art sell. Or sell for a a king's ransom.

If it's any consolation, I think it's one of those free rags that depend a lot on free lancers and doesn't pay much. I checked out her columns, and I think she gets published because she writes some pretty raunchy stuff, which appeals to the lowest common denominator.

I was going to post a thread about this artical. Grate minds think alike lol.

This artical is a piece of trash. Did the woman even check her damn spelling?

It pisses me off whenever I read the damn thing. Tom Petty sure as hell is not a sexist.

The author judges Tom very superficially. He doesn't know anything about him and his life.

I'm agree with you. :)

Ditto. (That's how I read it first too. LOL!)

I don't think he's a sexist. That accusation is not only irrational, but it's rude and, in my opinion, irrelevant. From the lyrics of his songs, I would never draw that conclusion about him.

I wonder if the article was supposed to be funny. The author must have watched RDAD rather superficially. Plus, she does not know very much about the whole divorce-story. In Conversations, Petty mentions that he's legally not allowed to talk about either his marriage or his divorce in interviews. So no wonder he gives no specifics in the movie!

And, yes, of course... Petty did not put family on top of his priorities list. He paid his dues, I guess. And it's a common pattern among rock musicians, isn't it?
