What of Tom Petty's Young Life Is Left in His Hometown of Gainesville?

When I told my brother I'd help him move out of his house in Gainesville, I planned to pay tribute to Tom Petty 's place of origin by visiting sites that were important to him as a young man. Jacksonville gave us Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tallahassee spawned Creed, Jim Morrison was born in Melbourne and went to Florida State University for a minute but was really a California guy.

Taylor Goldsmith is Dawes' primary songwriter, singer, and spokesman, but the band - which includes Taylor's brother Griffin, Wylie Gelber, and Tay Strathairn - operates as one. They are among the few younger bands vying for the type of longevity, cohesiveness, and consistency exemplified by the likes of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Wilco, and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Madison Square Garden - 9/10/14

There's an old concert-going axiom that goes something like this: If you're seeing an older, more established act, you're going to have to endure a half-dozen songs from the album they're promoting in order to hear the crowd favorites. We've all had to do it.

Peter Chianca: The review from the cheap seats

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers got rave reviews from the Boston critics for their Aug. 30 Fenway Park show -- and I can vouch for the fact that it was an awesome performance. But I can't help but wonder how reviews would read if the critics were placed in the upper decks among the rabble.

Cutting throuigh the political noise

'It's just the normal noises in here," says an unidentified woman's voice at the beginning of the 1979 song "Even the Losers," by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. That assessment followed a discordant racket of drumbeats, guitar twangs and other sounds that resembled music not in the least, but might be said to bear some similarity to the sounds of the New Hampshire primary campaign that is, mercifully, about to conclude.
