Tom Petty

How nice if you can still build a band in these uncertain times irritating, which repeatedly with rock solid albums, well-written songs, a unique sound arrives constant: Tom Petty The Heartbreakers, in times of Locust as valuable as Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.

A guy like Petty took the ventilator has not flamenco or hip hop record album, in order to keep his career going. Easily could his songs on each new album by Ryan Adams or Wilco or Jack White of the White Stripes accommodate. Despite the consistency Petty sounded with each album 1976-2006 always a bit of real, original than his disciples: Melissa Etheridge on their cover of Pettys "Refugee". Or the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the song "Dani California" damn sounds just like Petty's "Mary Jane's Last Dance". "That was certainly no bad intent," Petty said quite calmly the "Rolling Stone". Many rock and roll songs sounds now even more equal. As one might quietly sometimes ask Chuck Berry. When the Strokes on her "Last Nite" his single "American Girl" rippten and the public admitted that he had a good laugh, so Petty. OK, Def Leppard, Goo Goo Dolls or Pearl Jam - eye again pressed shut. Funniest coverer of the song is probably Roger McQuinn of the Byrds. He coverte "American Girl" as identical to the original, that he later asked Petty: "When I wrote this song" Well, Petty and McQuinn both these nasal voice, a somehow-like sound. It must have been an unconscious kinship because Petty claimed to have never heard big as a boy, the Byrds, but Elvis and the Beatles. With Ten he met Elvis in person, on the set of the Presley movie "Follow That Dream", where Tom's uncle had a job in Ocala, Florida, very near Gainesville where Tom grew up. Then he swapped his trademark spin of Wham-O to a box full of Elvis singles. When he later saw the Beatles on "The Ed Sullivan Show" on TV a few years, he knew what he wanted to be. Against the will of its authoritarian, choleric father who mocked the meek, dreamy Tom as a wimp and regularly beat. The thin blond hair, the unbeatable grin, not really handsome man, not a Don Juan, a man who won on appeal in time. When he "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" wrote his close friend Stevie Nicks song on the body, wrote the press them an affair to what both so irritated that Petty wanted to bring not even as a guest on the stage, in Fillmore Theatre in San Francisco, the living room of the two |. Benmont Tench, keyboardist Tom Petty The Heartbreakers, still remembers the day when they set out from Gainesville to Los Angeles in 1974, on April 1, by car. At that time, the band was still called Mudcrutch. The whole first felt like an April Fool on when the car broke down after two blocks. Five years later, with their third album "Damn The Torpedoes", produced by Jimmy Iovine (the man behind Patti Smith's "Horses", Bruce Springsteen's "The River", John Lennon's "Walls and Bridges"), they booked Tom Petty The Heartbreakers already in the "living rock legends class". Petty himself had so mixed feelings. The boy from the small town loathed the pretentiousness of the rock business in sunny, drug-infested California. When his record company MCA verlegen- him into the high-price segment, wanted his LPs sell for the same price as that of Steely Dan or ELO, for a dollar more than normal, Petty held new material back threatened, his next album "$ 8.98" to call. Much later, in 2002, on "The Last DJ", which so far last album of Tom Petty The Heartbreakers ", he settles with the marketing strategies of Casting era:" My name is Joe / I'm the CEO / Go get me a kid / With a good looking face / Bring me a kid / {who} Can remember his place / Some hungry poet / Son of a bitch / He gets to be famous / I get to be rich. "

That there is another way, Petty shows itself: Without ever participated in "Pop Idol", he is won Grammys'zig, Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame is member, on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood can visit his star. He has sold sixty million plates, landed 26 Top 10 hits. But he swung his Rickenbacker with the Heartbreakers, the supergroup Traveling Wilburys (consisting of Petty, Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne of ELO), as a solo artist and in 2008 with his newly founded first band Mudcrutch. He has played on countless other albums, Johnny Cash at Grammy album "Unchained". But not only with the usual suspects of country, folk and roots rock Petty worked. With Dave Stewart of Eurythmics he wrote the psychedelic single "Do not Come Around Here No More". A very special version of Petty's "Breakdown" Grace Jones played a on their album "Warm Leatherette". Petty found them so well that he wrote Jones an additional third verse. Companion of the first hour and decisively fOr Pettys Sound is the guitarist Mike Campbell, who has written songs for Don Henley, Johnny Cash, Fleetwood Mac or Brian Setzer of Stray Cats outside the Heartbreakers. The text has Campbell always leave Petty. The meaning of his songs want the today 59 year old doing rather not explain. "If it is for English-hour, it's not rock and roll more," said Tom Petty. He should even tell Sting.
