The Petty Archives

I've been superbly lazy about posting these weekly wrap-ups. Sorry. 

Anyways, you've likely heard about Tom Petty: An American Treasure. Exciting stuff. If you use the coupon code TR45URE when preordering you'll also get a download of the Official Live 'Leg. Don't forget to check out the video for Keep a Little Soul.

Anyways, for the weekly wrap-up:

We're looking for your photos! 
I'm always looking for good-quality, non-watermarked images for the Weekly Wrap-Up and Update posts. If you have any you'd like to see up there, send them along. We'll give you a thanks in the post.

Meet the Archivists coming soon!
Well, I hope.

That's it for this week.

Hey Petty people,

So there's a mysterious timer on TomPetty.com, and 17 hours to go. Doubt I'll be sleeping tonight.

Anyways, to keep the rest of you occupied while you wait, here's four interviews, from four different decades. (I forgot the 2000s.) Thanks to Sue Reaney for the magazine scans!

Sounds - May 27, 1978
"I don't have an attention span much longer than three minutes. I get bored if something doesn't happen. I don't like any dead space at all."

Circus - August 31, 1981
"I was fired from every job I ever had. I just couldn't take 'em seriously."

BAM - February 7, 1997
"It's really hard to write a good song. It's got to be something believable enough for me to sing with a straight face; if I can't believe it, then I can't expect anyone else to."

Rolling Stone #1215 - August 14, 2014
"It's funny how, in the moment, you don't know all you're seeing. People want me to explain me. I don't know me that well sometimes. I'm not sure I want to."

- Aimee (listening to The Guess Who - Share The Land

Time for another weekly wrap-up!

New Articles: And plenty of them! Thanks to S. Reaney, who's been scanning up her collection of magazines and newspapers for our use. Just got to get to typing them.

Aside from that, not much. My health's taken a bit of a downturn (typing is not so easy), and Liberty's still busy with school. Hopefully things will pick up again soon.

- Aimee (listening to April Wine - Enough is Enough)

Plenty of them, too! I'd better start typing.
