The Heartbreakers are a crack blues band.
That side of Tom and the band’s musical personality was pressed to wax with Mojo, and it was again on full display Tuesday night at the Saddledome with a snarling cover of “Baby Please Don’t Go,” the often-covered blues standard credited to Delta bluesman Big Joe Williams.
Tom embodies the conflicted storyteller role, and the band rages behind him, Mike Campbell firing nasty, brain-rattling guitar leads in between verses.
