Rolling Stone #697 - December 15, 1994

Pete Droge's run at the Viper Room, in West Hollywood, Calif., drew Tom Petty, busy guy Mike McCready of Pearl Jam and the Wallflowers' Jakob Dylan, who joined Droge for "People Get Ready" and "Sway." "Ironically, during sound check, we tried to do a Petty tune, 'I Won't Back Down,'" says Droge. "We butchered it. I'm glad we didn't pursue that further -- it would've been horribly embarrassing because Tom was actually there."
