Really liked Tom in this interview. I can not believe he is going to turn 60! I hope I look as good as he does. I really liked how he talked highly of his band and how talented muscially they all are! Wish Tom Petty and his band would play in Portland,Oregon some time!

Turning 50 here in G-ville taking your music old to new to heart. Enjoyed You and the Breakers @ the O-dome after a long wait w/ the perfect view straight away up top soaking it all in. The whole body of the show will stay w/ me till the end. Keep on truck'in my friend from an O-towner before the Mouse got there. Fla. needs some relief before the OIL gets here. Those Damn Greedy Bastards.
