coachellette: It was clear that summer night in 2003 in that house on Del Playa Boulevard in Isla Vista CA. Nobody knew each other, yet the power of Tom Petty had our arms interlinked and singing at the top of our lungs.Tom Petty brings everyone together.

Nobody knew each other, yet the power of Tom Petty had our arms interlinked and singing at the top of our lungs.Tom Petty brings everyone together.It's intergenerational, too. Saw him at Outside Lands festival a few years back and was astounded by the number of people in their teens/early 20s were watching his show and ferociously into it.I was also somewhat astounded by how obviously stoned Petty was when he came out for the encore. Made for some interesting lyrical passages in their marathon jam on "Gloria."
Bith Set Me Up: Full Moon Fever is like a cup of chicken noodle soup. Anytime I play it, it makes me feel so good.And if you don't like him, Don't Come Around Here No More.
Turbo Cojones: My generation has some pretty goddamn good role models. How 'bout you, Miley Cyrus fans?
Third_Uncle_Eno: the travelling wilbury's first album is a great supergroup debut album. A staple of my childhood. ("hey.... Tom Petty sounds a lot like that guy from The Wilbury's!")You could tell they had a lot of fun making it. Great road-trip album.
Third_Uncle_Eno: a hit that's never heard anymore....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCFAzPl1QmE
MFAWG: I'm old enough to remember when his label tried to market him as what became known as a 'Skinny Tie, New Wave' band.
DrSansabeltNoShiatSlacks: 4 chords. Stoned. Millionaire. Amazing.
