Heard this on college radio yesterday...Almost had to pull over until the emotions passed.
The demo of "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (without Stevie Nicks)
My band does Mudcrutch...this song in particular...
Also this one...
Another Rock icon gone who can never be replaced. I have another hole in my heart.
His middle name really is Earl!
His music (and Mike Campbell's lead guitar) have been hugely influential to me for decades--I'm really upset at his passing. I've been listening to his music all day every day this week and was very surprised to learn that he and Mike wrote "Ways to Be Wicked", which I knew as a Lone Justice song. I've been playing it (and playing along to it) all day--gonna add it in to my band's setlist.
my God, the video posted earlier of them playing Running Down a Dream at Glastonbury....WOW...I've seen Petty and the boys twice, but even so, that performance was simply epic. What a great band performing a great song.
Great choices here, I'll add Surrender, Ways To Be Wicked, Waiting for Tonight, Depot Street, Casa Dega (demo cut is best), Big Weekend, Crawling back to you, Magnolia, No Second Thoughts... the list only stops once you've mentioned everything he wrote!
This doesn't even touch on how good they were when covering other bands, that's a very long list too and they're all "better than the original" quality covers.
I wish I could stop crying.

Cool little rockabilly number that was a B side.
Straight into Darkness
The Wild One Forever
One Story Town
The only Petty song I have in my living-room repertoire is "House of Stone", copped from his Mudcrutch CD. I'm thinking now about working on "Wildflower".
Put the capo on the 5th fret, that's how it's played.
if I can find one. . .
This one started out getting airplay at a newer local radio station, but they went "generic" like they usually do.
Really hard rocker. KILLER drums! Has a Zeppelin vibe about it. It's in G, but Mike Campbell's SG is tuned down a full step.
Yeah, Tom sang backups for Dwight Twilley Band, and Dwight and Phil Seymour sang on a couple of TP records, if I remember correctly.
Awesome dude. R.I.P.
