What a day... could only be a Monday. As of 9:12pm (ET) it cannot be confirmed that Tom Petty has passed. You would think that in the modern age of instant connections, we would not be as inundated with false reports but these days it's all about the "scoop" and the hell with the facts. In my mind's eye I picture Tom's Willbury brother George taunting him with that famous Monty Python bit from one of the films he financed for them, as he gets ready to welcome him home with Roy, Del and Howie. Prayers for his family, The Heartbreakers and those he kept close. Truly one of a kind and part of a breed that is vanishing from our planet.
Trigger Hippy is a powerful, soul-infused rock and roll band founded by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman featuring twin lead vocals from multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne and singer-songwriter Jackie Greene who also plays guitar and keyboards. Rounding out the group are lead guitarist Tom Bukovac, who co-produced the EP with the band, and bassist Nick Govrik.
Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
A nice batch of tunes... love the new Noel, Ben and Viola.
Selling my CD collection.
