Love how Ed starts it. Such a great song.
Tom Petty & Eddie Vedder -- The Waiting (Tom Petty)
Opening paragraph from the book inside the 6cd box set called, Playback 1973-93
"When the first album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers appeared in 1976, it seemed to come out of nowhere. Literally nowhere. Listening to that record-which sounded shockingly alive and immediate in a time full of disco and Kiss and mellow Californians remaking oldies-it was very hard to figure out where this band came from. The airy vocal harmonies and bright guitars suggested the west coast, but the gutsiness edging into nastiness seemed like what was happening in New York. The songs had an economy right out of England, but the voice in the lyrics was unmistakably American....
Once, talking about being lumped in with Springsteen, Mellencamp, and Seger in rock critic shorthand. Petty said "I think I'm more, dare I say -
than those guys. I know all those people quite well and I think that they're terrific...I was into that straight rock thing for a longtime. However I don't think that's the whole ball of wax. I think there's more to it than that."
i love this song sooo much

Tom Petty - A Face In The Crowd
Moving through All Kinds of Terrain.
The first time I heard anything by T.P. was at a friends house around 1979 or 1980. He put on "Damn the Torpedoes" which was still fairly new and I heard it then for the first time. Wham! Instant fan!
We're living on the edge of something big. It's a fantastic time in history to be alive.

Tom Petty - Shadow Of A Doubt (Live On Fridays)
Tom Petty - Room At The Top
a cool snippet from the book inside the playback box set
From Damn The Torpedoes sessions 1978 // the MCA fight
"The songs Petty was recording were influenced by the war he was fighting,
Think of the lyrics that jump out from that album
Everybody's had to fight to be free
Even the losers get lucky sometime
I can rise abut it
The struggle to complete Torpedoes helped Petty to focus on what would become
a theme through his work for years after: the refusal to be bullied and the willingness to fight against bad odds.
It's striking how many of Petty's most famous slogans sound like
a guy in the middle of a brawl:
Quit Jammin Me
Don't Come Around Here No More
I was born a rebel
I won't back down
During the Torpedoes period even the love songs were packed with what could as
well have been references to his court fight
There's people running 'round loose in the the world who ain't got nothin'
better to do than make a meal of some bright-eyed kid"
