Rolling Stone #756 - March 20, 1997

Evidently, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers aren't afraid of commitment. Staging 20 shows in 30 days at San Francisco's Fillmore, they treated fans to an extended free-for-all: different sets every night, kooky covers ("Goldfinger," from the James Bond movie), and special guests like Carl Perkins and John Lee Hooker. "I wanted to get away from the land of videos and records for a while," says Petty. "We've made so many over the last five years, the best thing to do is just go out and play."
