Tom Petty: Walkin' Like an Egyptian
Rolling Stone #511 -- October 22, 1987

Tom Petty brought his entire brood along for MTV's Rock and Roll Caravan. Two winners got to join Petty and the Heartbreakers on a tour of Egypt and Israel that included a Nile cruise and the Bob Dylan-Petty show in Tel Aviv. A high point of the trip was a visit to the Great Pyramid at Giza. "The sound inside is so fantastic, maybe we should do our next album there," said Petty after visiting the monument's cavernous interior.
