Rock On Tommy

Some things you never imagine yourself saying. Like Tom Petty kicks ass.

I have avoided some bands out of bigotry rather than aesthetic sensibility. I think I avoided Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers because in the grunge age, when I started listening to music proper, Tom Petty wore a hat and was in the Travelling Wilburys. Also he was rotten ugly. And I associated him with Jeff Lynne, who was highly uncool at the time. So I always thought of him as a sort of MOR grandee instead of a hard-ass rocker. I was wrong.

He rocks so righteously he makes me want to kick over my ergonomic swivel chair and headbutt my neatly ordered desk.
