    Re: New Petty/HB Album

    You folks who have been in this for the long haul (and at this point, I guess that's all of you) have heard me say this before, but if Barbara Eden showed up in my living room tomorrow and said I could be any rock star I wanted to be . . .  I would be Tom Petty. It's pretty rare to be able to point to a guy who has been with you -- pretty much intact -- since  you first realized that there was more to this rock 'n roll thing than Don't Worry Baby (as cool as that is), but if there is such a guy, Tom Petty is him for me.

    I had some things to say about "complacency" in the Comfort Zone thread, so I'll probably get blasted for using the word "reliable," here . . . .

    But there it is.

    I just think it's cool to be able to get excited -- even after all these years -- the way the OP clearly is here.

    I mean . . .   isn't that what music is supposed to do?

    Or have I been missing the point?

    Maybe all these guys we love so much to hear are just doing it so we can have intellectual discussions about it.


    Ya' think?





    Now you listen here! He's not the Messiah . . .   he's a very naughty boy!
