The Petty Archives

Hey Petty people,

Almost forgot about the wrap-up this week. Been pretty occupied. For news around the web (or just Google Alerts), apparently Kevin Bacon's band (he has a band?) made a song about a Tom Petty T-Shirt, and Ann Wilson will be releasing a cover of "Luna" on her new album, Immortal.

Onto the weekly wrap-up!

Hey Petty people,

Said I'd have some articles up this week. So here's a few for you. Here's a 1978 interview with Tom in the Daily Mirror, and a 2012 interview with Mike Campbell in the Halifax Chronicle-Herald - but not the Mike Campbell you might expect.

That's all for today. See you on Monday for the Weekly Wrap-Up.

Hey Petty people,

Not much to report this week. Liberty's busy with school, and I've been working on a few things of my own. For my own purposes, I made a web button for the site. Not much, but here it is:

Anyways, I'll try to get some articles up this week. That's all for now,

Hey Petty people,

Two new interviews for you.

Interview with Tom Petty - ca. 1999
In which Tom talks about the time he forgot how to play one of his hits, having his own dressing room, and a recurring character that appears in his songs.

Interview with Tom Petty - April 13, 2003
In which Tom talks about playing in small rooms, his connections to psychedelic rock, and the state of the music industry.

Usual big pile of setlists, too. Take a look over at the Tour Dates and Setlists page - I've added the last few tours to it.

Anyways, that's all for today. Hope you enjoy!

Hey Petty people,

First off, happy birthday to Stan Lynch, who turns 63 today! As well, if you've got $5 million squirreled away in a mattress or something, Tom Petty's former Encino house is on the market. I wouldn't mind living in it. Think they'll take an IOU?

Anyways, onto the Weekly Wrap-Up!
