After one month and several "I-miss-my-blog"'s later... I'm back! Finally.
I've got a new look here and I've decided to drop my comment moderation -- nothing bad was going on, guys. I just wanted to moderate there for awhile. But now, come one, come all! I'm still reading everybody's comments so no need to worry about that. Your voice is being heard!
Hope you've been well & I hope your fall is off to a great start. (I love fall!!! Football and cooler weather. Plus the holidays are within reach.)
I know I lost some of you, so I'm going to go back and find you guys. :)
Well, let's get this partay restarted!
Have yall heard about Tom Petty & the Heartbreaker's massive live anthology that's coming just in time for Christmas? Take a look:
Wowzers. Tom Petty overload.
I love Tom Petty's greatest hits album, but honestly I could listen to just that and be fine. I just can't get into all of his other songs (which I'm sure are great) that aren't as popular (or accessible, I suppose). There's TONS of them, too.
He was 56 in this -- he's definitely still got it:
So... whaddya think? Do you like Tom? I think his voice is one of those that either you love it or hate it. There's no in between. Kind of like the lovely lady that joined TP&tH on this tour: Stevie Nicks (see, I always manage to relate my thinking back to Fleetwood Mac somehow! Can't help it... all my fave peeps are connected in some way). As well as Bob Dylan or Janis Joplin or Jim Morrison or Bob Marley.
I say: Alright, Tom, grab Mike and Benmont and bust out on another tour!
**UPDATE: What do you guys think of my new header? I just whipped it up in about ten minutes, but I think it came together quite nicely!! Hope you like it :)
About Classic rock girl!
I'm a college student who grew up two decades too late and missed out on some fantastic music. I relive those years through this blog, by talking about anything and everything rock music related from the '60s, '70s, and '80s-- with some of "today's" music thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
