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!

Hey Petty people,

Has it really been seven and a half months? Feels like the blink of an eye. "And the days went by/Like paper in the wind," to put it in the words of a certain songwriter.

Anyways, I've got three tribute articles for you. (Eagle-eyed visitors might've noticed the two magazine covers in the magazine index.)

And here's a few more setlists from my collection.

That's about it for me today. I've been having a bit of a rough spot at the moment. Right about now this song suits me. Sorry, dark humour.

Hey Petty people,

Time for another weekly wrap-up! Before we start, you might be interested in checking out this cover of I Won't Back Down by Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and singer-songwriter KT Tunstall. Not bad, really. 

Hey Petty people,

One of those quiet Friday nights. Here's some setlists for you, from my collection of concert recordings. Got plenty more of them, but here's a start.

We're always looking for more setlists. If you have one not listed on the tour date page, feel free to send them along. We'd appreciate it.
