No, I mean that over 3 hour long documentary and concert registration.
Gotcha. It's on Netflix here, not so in Europe? (I think it was a Netflix 'exclusive').
Nah, Petty, apart from some hits and being recognized by music aficionado's never got as big with the general public over here as in the states. Maybe now some of it will be released again hopefully.
Be at Peace Tom Petty. You did good and it stuck...
You added a lot to my life's musical journey
RIP Tom. I got to see the concert which put him on the map.
I saw him with Dylan and the Dead in '86 at RFK and he was great. However, if I never hear "Free Ballin'" again, it'll be too soon.
Sadly, I never had the opportunity to see him live. Wish I could have, a great performer.
what a fucking band!
Just found this The Heartbreakers jam room. Tom loved R+R.
That is sooooo cool.
What a great photo.
That photo speaks to me. A relaxed atmosphere loaded with gear. You can smell the tubes.
Don't want to start an argument, but I always sort of compared Tom Petty to Bruce Springsteen. (I’ve got othing against Bruce Springsteen)
I came to Tom Petty only really when he became "mainstream" with songs like Won't Back Down & Freefalling, in the UK.
I "got" Tom Petty, and always felt Bruce Springsteen was trying too hard.
Breakdown is one of my all time favourite songs and the cover by Grace Jones is (unusually for a cover) equally as good. I believe Tom Petty was so impressed by her version, he wrote an extra verse for her.
both had some good songs,born to run and racing in the streets were my favorite springsteen songs,american girl and last dance with mary jane were my favorite petty songs.guess im a girl chasin,racing pothead...
Springsteen can’t shine Petty’s boots.
If you want to see a groovin' dance floor, lay into "Breakdown" sometime during your second set ... it'll make "Dirty Dancin' " look like Victorian ballroom lessons. There's something about that slinky beat that loosens hips.
Check out the documentary for the making of the 2010 record 'Mojo'. That room is central.
^ I can't help but notice how well-dressed they are. I don't know if it's just because they had a camera crew in, but I don't recall ever seeing a photo of Tom Petty in a T-shirt or shorts.
The man had style.
Rebel flag baseball cap and sweatshirt, fag hanging from his mouth. Style but in a different way.
