    I think Tom Petty would be proud.

    Great story, eberg15101. I enjoyed reading this part the most. That's awesome.

    I love Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, one of my all time favorites. Petty and the boys are right up there with Allmans, Stones, Floyd and other great rock bands. Petty has been putting out great music and albums now for 35-40 years now. (Yikes!) Tom Petty is a living rock legend.

    I'll be back to this thread. Still haven't check it all out yet, plus I'll add some thoughts on TP.
    :cheers:

    Man, I love this song...

    Angel Dream (No.2)

    I dreamed you
    I saw your face
    Caught my lifeline
    When drifting through space
    I saw an angel
    I saw my faith
    I can only thank God it was not too late

    Over mountains
    I floated away
    'Cross an ocean
    I dreamed her name
    I followed an angel
    Down through the gates
    I can only thank God it was not too late

    Sing a little song
    Loneliness
    Sing one to make me smile
    Another round for everyone
    I'm here for a little while

    Now I'm walking
    This street on my own
    But she's with me
    Everywhere I go
    Yeah, I found an angel
    I found my place
    I can only thank God it was not too late
    I can only thank God it was not too late
    I can only thank God it was not too late

    My compliments on your personal "Tom Petty Magnum Opus" EB...:grinthumb

    I have to say I am not a big fan of his though, I have his debut and Damn The Torpedoes and a greatest hits compilation, and that covers TP for my needs.

    Groovy -- I know, its really a beautiful song and I love it, it's good to sleep to, good to wake up to, good to listen to when I'm depressed and good when I'm happy, it's so simple, but well written, and not even in a classic Petty sense... the whole thing with Petty evolving again:D
    LG - I bet you'd like Long After Dark, and Mudcrutch as well.. MC is definitely more southern influence, I bet you'll like it, I just have a feeling;)
    I hope you'll check out his new album once it comes out too, like I said in my post, it's supposedly going to be somewhat of a combination of MC, classic Petty, solo Petty, and bluesy/jammy type of deal....
    RS -- you can do better than that, you have to check out all of his stuff, at least one album for everyone:D

    Nice find GM:grinthumb

    they sounded solid there, but looked a mess, Tom with those Sideburns and Mike looked really strung out, they sounded really great though, and those guitars sounded great especially for a show that big:heheh:

    Re: Official Tom Petty Thread

    I guess Tom and the boys had a late night before, and weren't used to be awake so early, playing in the sunlight. :heheh: Life on the road, backstage parties after the concert, livin' the rock star life!

    Hey, eberg? off topic question - is this thread kinda slow loading or is it just me? For some strange reason the thread is kinda feels slugish. Maybe due to all the videos?
