August 30, 2010Nearly half a century ago, Duane La Fleche proposed in his weekly column in the Albany Times Union that the New York Philharmonic eschew an offer to make its summer residence in Stowe, Vermont and instead set up shop in Saratoga Springs. "It seems very wrong," La Fleche wrote, "that a New York orchestra should have to look outside the State for a summer residence. Wouldn't the State Reservation at Saratoga Springs make a nice location?" Comments

August 27, 2010Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are among the most "American" of bands in the history of rock 'n roll, but that doesn't dissuade folks north of the border from being amongst the Heartbreakers' most ardent fans. The Canadian shows on the Mojo tour have been excellent, and Toronto may have been best among them. Comments

August 25, 2010With Tom sporting a long black duster jacket, the Heartbreakers took the stage promptly at nine o'clock and proceeded to pulverize the packed Izod Center with a blistering set of hits, deep cuts, covers and new songs off Mojo. "Mary Jane's Last Dance" stewed and simmered to a boil, but the highlight of the night may have been the guitar interplay between Mike Campebll and Scott Thurston on an explosive "I Should Have Known It."

August 25, 2010...with that, Tom Petty tore into the rollicking guitar riff for Chuck Berry's "Carol," the first surprise of the band's second night at the sold-out Comcast Center outside Boston. Typically slotted for encores, "Carol" appearing in the first half of the show should have served as a not-so-subtle hint that Tom and the band were ready to rock. Comments

August 19, 2010Tonight in Hartford, I happened to be walking by Crosby, Stills and Nash's dressing room a few minutes before they went on and was treated to an a cappella rendition of "Woodstock" as the legendary trio warmed up their voices. Comments
The doorway next to theirs opened and out walked Tom, Mike and Benmont, peaking their heads around the corner like little kids wanting to steal a glimpse before Tom nodded at their vocal practice session and said, "I think that's gonna work out just fine." Priceless.
