February 7

One day you wake up and you are surrounded by Tom Petty.

CDs, cassettes… I even have two vinyl copies You’re Gonna Get It, how does that happen? Then, in the car, Sirus/XM has Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure.

In 1976 he released Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, their debut album.

It had three bonafide hits, Breakdown, Strangered in the Night and American Girl.

Mike Campbell is the American Brian May, no? I love this band. I’ve only seen them live twice (with openers that included Lone Justice and Chris Whitley). I’d go see them again anytime…
