Remembering Tom Petty

I haven’t crunched any numbers, but it seems like 2017 is going to lose more celebrities than 2016. And we’ve lost another big name in Tom Petty.

While I wasn’t the biggest fan of Tom Petty, I’ve always appreciated his music. He’s a cultural music icon and deserved to be. I remember being introduced to Tom Petty during the MTV years when Music Television was defined by actual music… on television. Music twenty-four hours a day. And for a while, You Got Lucky played every hour on the hour (or so it seemed).

I’ve always loved that song.

Remembering Prince

Prince was not my favorite artist. But…

I probably saw Purple Rain a half dozen times; at the drive-in no less. With a bunch of friends. Those were good times.

Purple Rain was (is) a great record! And I still have a copy! Yes. Vinyl. Which by the way, is superior to CDs; and anything digital. I like some of his songs, and I think he’s overlooked as a guitar player.

I think I’ve said it every year since his Super Bowl performance; he put on the best show ever. No one’s come close. Most are gawdy, overdone, embarrassments, even when I like the artist. I’m glad the NFL posted the whole show.

Ain’t It the Truth!

Best Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever
