Rolling Stone #576 - April 19, 1990

There were plenty of famous faces in the crowd for Tom Petty's show at the L.A. Forum last month, so it was no surprise that a few of them joined him onstage. You had a couple of Wilburys (Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne), a pair of Gunners (Slash and Duff McKagan), the ubiquitous Bruce Springsteen and even a Byrd (Roger McGuinn). Dylan was the first to take the stage, to sing "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35." Springsteen then joined Dylan, Petty and the Heartbreakers to sing "I'm Crying" and Creedence Clearwater's "Travelin' Band." Springsteen has no doubt gotten close to the band, since Heartbreaker Mike Campbell is producing tracks to Patti Scialfa's upcoming solo album.
