    Stories about the challenges recording “Refugee” are legendary, but you would never know it when seeing Tom and the band play the second single off Damn The Torpedoes.

     

    It’s the song that whips the crowd into a frenzy at the end of the show, a sonic maelstrom led by Mike Campbell’s searing guitar solo that typically finds the Heartbreaker guitarist way off stage right playing to fans at the edge of the stage.

     

    It’s the exclamation point on the Heartbreakers’ set every night.

    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ 2014 run at Red Rocks Amphitheater was a tale of three shows.

     

    The first night was the coldest of the three night. Steve Winwood and company warmed the stage up with a beautiful set, the legendary English rocker’s debut at Red Rocks after more than 50 years in music. Wrapped up in coats, hats and scarves, Tom and the guys took the stage and rocked for the next two hours despite the falling temperatures. 

     

    On night two, the rains came, a steady drizzle that started during

    “Was it today? Yesterday? Anyone know when it happened?”

    Tom stood outside of his dressing room with Benmont, the bandmates hovering of a smartphone.

    “It was last night according to this report,” said the Heartbreakers long-time keyboard player. “I think it would be good for us to do it.”

    After the band wound down “Free Fallin,” Tom stepped to the mike.

    “One of our favorite bands from the ‘60s that put out some of the greatest singles was Paul Revere & the Raiders,” Tom said.

    Tulsa will always be a special place for Tom and the band.

     

    It was here that Mudcrutch met Denny Cordell on their way to Los Angeles and the producer ultimately signed them to Shelter Records.

     

    Cordell isn’t the only mentor the band has had from Tulsa. J.J. Cale also hailed from Tulsa, and was a huge influence on Tom and the guys.

     

    So after the last notes of “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” rang out in the BOK Center, Tom stepped to the mike and said, “We’ve had some very special friends from right here in Tulsa, and it’s good to be back!”

    So

    Every fan should get to stand behind Mike Campbell while he plays “I Should Have Known It.”
    I found myself behind the Heartbreakers co-captain and lead guitarist’s amp line Friday night at Dallas’ American Airlines Center just as Mike tore into the blistering opening riff of the Mojo standout.

     

    Mike is well-known as Tom’s songwriting and producing partner, but he’s also one of the great, great rock ‘n roll guitar players of all time, skilled on a multitude of instruments, creative in the sounds he gets and tasteful in always

    “U Get Me High” is the band’s current single, but the tune off of Hypnotic Eye that’s come the longest way since rehearsals in July is “Shadow People.”  The last track on the new album, “Shadow People” was run through a bunch of times by Tom and the guys during rehearsals to figure out the right feel and arrangement for the live performance. It’s one of those songs where the band moves and shifts depending on where Tom goes with it vocally, so finding the feel for it was important.
