Tom Petty is great. Great songwriter and the Heartbreakers are a great band. And they've been around forever. I'm actually really digging some of the early stuff lately, and I've been meaning to check out Damn The Torpedos - so far I only have the greatest hits and Wildflowers - both awesome albums.

The first time I saw Tom Petty was 24 yrs ago .
The venue was Santa Monica Civic Aud -2500 capcity. 1978.
Eddie Money opened up the show.
We sat in the 3rd row.
The 1st album is best
and the 3rd one is good.

oh yeah, i've always enjoyed TP & the HB's music since i first heard the song "Refugee"...wooo..that was many moons ago I agree that Tom is very much like a regular guy..not intimadating to get close to..like a best bud. Yeah, most of the lyrics in his songs sound like they reflect the real world, so if a grrl gets dumped...and the guy dont miss her..well, that just doesnt happen, RIGHT???? Anyway, its a group that's been around a long time..and i've even enjoyed Tom's solo projects...so thanks for the music, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers! Congrats on being inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame as well..its where you belong

Oh, i cant forget to mention..the concerts these guys put on is superb! When i went to my first TP&the HBs in the late 70's like Mr. Diamond, the thing that has stuck in my mind all these yrs..was that during the song "Break Down"..Tom didnt get to sing the first verse at all...cuz the audience was sooo loudly singing it...he just let it happen...right into the chorus..hahaha...then right after that...he tells us.."you guys are gonna put me out of a job!"....woooo...they rock!

*raises hand* for the Jezebel & Diamond club

summer of 1980...fell head over heels in love with my date at a Tom Petty concert. Same guy who came home from his job at a record store one day and said, "check out this new Irish band..." with 'Boy' in his hands.

So Tom and U2 were 'ours.'

Damn, I'm old.

Jezebel-
I was at that show!
Immediately after that he did a 'suprise show' at The Whiskey in Hollywood the next night. I attended that show.
I bumped into David Lee Roth as he was strolling thru the crowd.
We chatted.

Joyful -
I like our club.

You saw the UCR show? or the Forum show? I remember the Forum show being on superbowl Sunday, cause the Rams (the LA Rams, that is) were playing for the first time ever, I think, in a superbowl.

And, whatever happened to David Lee Roth, anyway?

I've often thought that we should start a group for older U2 fans

My brother would be so jealous. He reveres Dave. He saw him perform some time last year, I think, at some festival in Washington state. I heard some weird rumour like Dave and Sammy finally met, got along really well (after years of slagging each other) and might tour together!! But it's all rumour where Van Halen is concerned.

We see the sun go down in your eyes
