    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are pleased to announce that they will headline the first night of the 2012 Isle of Wight Festival on Friday, June 22.

    The band's performance at the legendary UK festival is their first announced concert in 2012 and will be their first major European show in 20 years.

    The Isle of Wight Festival is one of the most prestigious events in rock 'n roll. In the late 1960s the festival drew large crowds to the beautiful island to see acts such as Bob Dylan and The Who.

    Next up is Jammin' Me, the first single from Let Me Up (I've Had Enough).

    Tom co-wrote this song with Bob Dylan and Mike Campbell. The first part of the writing came during a songwriting session Tom and Bob had at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles. This session also produced "I Got My Mind Made Up" which would appear on Dylan's 1986 Knocked Out Loaded album.

    The b-side on this single is Make That Connection which like Gator On The Lawn also appears on Playback and as the 1994 UK only release of the "Mary Jane's Last Dance" single.

    Below is this week's question.
