(Rolling Stone)   You don't know how it feels to be me, but you could know how it feels to listen to a newly-released acoustic version of this song that Tom Petty recorded at home back in '93   (rollingstone.com) divider line

That's a weird definition of acoustic, but the demo is solid.

I miss Tom Petty. Saw him many times and always a good show.

I have to admit, I'm surprised how sad I was over his passing. I guess I didn't realize how much I actually liked his music.

rgGolf4: I miss Tom Petty. Saw him many times and always a good show.



On my list of "wish I could have seen them live" artists.

I liked his catchy hit singles in the 80s and early 90s well enough, but I didn't own any of his albums and weirdly I didn't become a huge fan until the 2000s.  An employee at a record store I frequented raved about The Last DJ, so I bought a copy.  I went back the next payday and bought about six or seven more of his albums  :)

He was so damned consistent throughout the decades, but I'll be damned if my favorite album of his was one of his later ones.  I just love Highway Companion so much.

I only got to see him a couple of times but they were both amazing shows. The man loved performing for his crowd. His Live Anthology is a great collection. I bought it a few weeks before he died which really made me appreciate it even more.

Had a chance to take my son (then two) to see him at Red Rocks as his first show. We decided not to and regret it all the time.

Maybe Doctors shouldn't give opioids to a former heroin user.

I've always loved those lyrics from Crawling Back To You, and was surprised to see them here. They're beautifully dark.

I listened if a song was on the radio or Sirius/XM, but I lose as much sleep now he's gone as much as the loss of that destination unknown chef that slid across the ice.  They had a better life than I'll know, but I'm still playing guitar and cooking food.

The Last DJ isn't one of his better albums although I do like a few tracks on that album, amazing that drew you in. If you haven't gotten your hands on Wildflowers yet check it out, Full Moon Fever, Into the Great Wide Open are great. I have a soft spot for She's the One, it's a Soundtrack album that's forgotten but "Walls" and "Change the Lock" are underrated. (Side note Glen Campbell covered Walls in the 00s, check it out). Damn the Torpedoes' first half is a perfect album side. His later album were different than his early ones, it show cases his growth, Mojo and Highway Companion don't get the love they deserve. If you haven't checked out the Traveling Wilbury's the first album is a classic and the second (called Vol 3) is fun but not as solid as the first album. Runnin' Down a Dream documentary is a great watch. The Mudcrutch albums aren't bad either, I was surprised how much I like them. Enjoy the tunes!

Thank to your contribution to this thread and life in general.

I sure to do miss him. Saw him a few times and they were awesome shows.

It's weird how some people you never knew seem to affect you more than you expect when they die. Tom Petty was one. Prince was another more recently, but even Jim Henson really caught me off guard too. People you just assume will live on forever, forgetting for the moment that isn't possible.

It's just the normal noises.
