SLQ: Tom Pettys Let Me Up (Ive Had Enough) Turns 25 by: Matt Springer Theres a dark, evil creature shambling through the back catalogs of the greatest rock artists ever, and its name is The Eighties. In 1987, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers had just come off the road supporting Bob Dylan. They went into the studio and the beast of the Eighties made its move, resulting in Let Me Up (Ive Had Enough), an album that turns 25 this month and sounds every year of its age. There seems to be no limit to the impact the diabolical beast had on most of the eras mainstream rock recordings. From all-time classics to obscure platters, theres always a synth lurking around every corner, and a too-clean sheen sprayed over so much of the decades recorded output. Behind the processed veil, however, Let Me up stands as a record with an unselfconscious looseness and a well-earned status as an underrated gem in Pettys catalog. Even with the Eighties breathing down his neck, Petty cant help but keep the songwriting crisp, with a hint of twang. The record blasts out of the gate with its biggest single, Jammin Me, which spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock charts. Its catchy and moves but suffers not only from the dated production, but lyrics that call out Eddie Murphy and Vanessa Redgrave. (Its a co-write with Dylan; does he even know who Eddie Murphy is?) Fortunately, the record recovers quickly on track two, Runaway Trains although again, you have to take off your headphones and cover your ears through the first thirty seconds or so, one of those inexplicable synthy intros that Don Henley popularized. Once Pettys voice cuts in, its a fast trip to the cutting heart of an emotional bedrock of a tune, with one of those choruses Petty has mastered, jacked through with big major chords and off-kilter metaphors I guess its one of those things / You can never explain / Like when an angel cries / Like runaway trains well grant you, crying angels are pretty inexplicable, but runaway trains are usually investigated pretty hardcore, Tom. The rest of the record ping-pongs between these two extremes of strong songwriting backed with classic Heartbreakers sound, and uncomfortable moments where the Eighties are sitting on the sofa and drinking all the good beer. The Damage Youve Done and Think About Me wouldnt be out of place on a Petty record from two weeks ago, grounded in electric guitar and Stan Lynchs big-bopping drums. Then My Life / Your World takes a perfectly decent slide guitar acoustic intro and fades it into what sounds like a Phil Collins outtake. And if Phil Collins didnt want it, Tom Petty has no business going near it. Let Me Up closes strong; Benmont Tenchs piano on How Many More Days is the perfect kind of Heartbreakers hook, one that takes the bones of Pettys song and covers it with muscle and skin. The title track at the albums close evokes the Rolling Stones with a crunchy guitar riff and an effortless swing. Is this damning with faint praise, or guilding a rotting lily? Maybe a bit of both. Let Me Up (Ive Had Enough) is a bit schizo like that, one of those records with big ups and deep downs, and if it isnt clear from the above, an album where the ups make the downs worth weathering. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/tom-petty-let-me-up-ive-had-enough-turns-25/

SLQ: No. 25 Tom Petty, Free Fallin Top 100 Classic Rock Songs by: Ken Kelley Tom Pettys 1989 record Full Moon Fever was the first time in his career that he had released a record without his longtime backing band, the Heartbreakers. Still, even though Pettys name alone adorned the record sleeve, the remainder of the Heartbreakers, with the exception of drummer Stan Lynch, supported him by performing on the record. In addition, Petty got help from Traveling Wilbury compatriots Jeff Lynne, George Harrison and Roy Orbison, meaning this so-called solo record hardly lacked star power. Free Fallin was the most popular single from the record and, after one of the lengthiest debates in our young history (and with all due respect to American Girl, Refugee, Breakdown and other classics), lands on the Top 100 Classic Rock Songs list. Free Fallin was the highest charting song released from Full Moon Fever, ascending to the No. 7 position on the Billboard Hot 100. During the filming of a VH1 Storytellers episode in 1999 Petty disclosed that the songs lyrics were thrown together rather haphazardly, with primary consideration being given to how well they fit the melody of the song, as opposed to how well they delivered any story or message. Well, if thats the case, then the meaning found its own way to the surface and into his audiences hearts. Free Fallin was a coming-of-age song of sorts for the rocker. Here, he showed a new level of vulnerability, casting himself as the villain in a break-up and bitterly mocking his own so-called freedom. At least thats how some pessimists choose to see it, while others focus instead on the positive celebration of freedom from the first half of the chorus. Glass half-full, glass half-empty; either way its a great song. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/tom-petty-free-fallin-top-100-classic-rock-songs/

Voldar: Tom Petty Through the Years When Tom Petty first hit the airwaves in 1976 with his debut single "Breakdown" he didn't seem destined to become a superstar - more like the kind of guy who would release a handful of moderately successful singles and never get beyond a cult following. But Petty just kept getting bigger and bigger as he scored hit after hit. Along the way, he's worked with an incredible bunch of collaborators, including Stevie Nicks, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, George Harrison and many others. Here's a slideshow of photos from Petty's amazing career. Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/photos/tom-petty-through-the-years-20111020#ixzz1t1ksubI8

Voldar: Amare Stoudemires Smashed Hand Recalls 1984 Tom Petty Incident If theres one rocker who can relate to how Amare Stoudemire feels right about now, its Tom Petty. The basketball star injured himself by smashing his hand against a glass door holding a fire extinguisher in frustration following a playoff loss Monday night (April 30), echoing a similar incident from Pettys past. In October of 1984, during whats been described as long, arduous recording sessions for Southern Accents, his sixth album with the Heartbreakers, Pettys emotions got the better of him and he punched a wall, severely breaking his left hand. As he told Ultimate Guitar a year later while showing off his scars: I wasnt trying to cripple myself. I just backhanded a wall, but I hit it wrong. Fortunately, after four hours of surgery, which included two pins being inserted into his arm, and months of therapy, Petty was able to resume playing guitar. As scary as the event must have been at the time, in retrospect he feels some good things came out of it: Breaking my hand was unfortunate, but I think that improved the album quite a bit. It made me really sit back and take stock of it a little bit longer. I was too deep into the album; my perspective was hurting. Petty and the Heartbreakers were able to complete and release Southern Accents in early 1985, and the record found them breaking new ground by incorporating drum machines and horns into their music for the first time. The albums first single, Dont Come Around Here No More, went on to become one of the groups biggest hits. Lets hope something similarly good comes out of Stoudemires momentary loss of control in the long term. In the short term, it appears his season is finished and that the rest of his New York Knicks teammates arent all that far behind him. They currently trail the Miami Heat 0-2 in their best-of-seven playoff series. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/amare-stoudemire-smashed-hand-tom-petty/

Voldar: . petty pursues a dream Tom Petty's memory is what passes for Proustian for a rock star. He can remember going to Johnny Cash's house in Nashville in the early Eighties with English songwriter Nick Lowe. It was a hot summer's day. The plan, in so far as there was a plan, was that they were going to have a Sunday lunch with Johnny and his wife, June Carter. Both of Johnny and June, it transpired, were sick at the last minute and were in the hospital. Tom and Nick still had their Sunday meal at Chateau Cash. "While we were seated at the table," Petty recalls, "one of the people working there came and tapped me on the shoulder and said, 'Could you come into the next room. John wants to talk to you on the phone'. So I did. "He said, 'Thanks for coming out, sorry I couldn't be there'. It was very strange. And as we were leaving," Petty continues, "June was on the phone, and as each person left the house, she said goodbye to them. Very unusual. They were that kind of people." Lest we forget, in 1996, Petty and his band the Heartbreakers played with Cash on his second Rick Rubin- produced album, Unchained. Cash at that stage was living with a lot of physical suffering. "John had this incredible way of walking through extreme pain. He was on the road, and he called me from it. And he said, 'Well, I go on stage and nothing hurts'." You get roughly the same impression about Tom Petty, the highway troubadour who has overcome much emotional pain in his life, but survived to tell the tale. His 1999 song, Room at the Top, he once described as, "one of the most depressing songs in rock history", adding, "I was in a rough place when I did that record", perhaps meaning divorce (from his wife of 22 years, Jane Benyo) and other deep-seated personal difficulties. "I had some long periods of severe depression," he told USA Today in 2006. "I took some hard knocks and retreated from the world and lived in this little cabin. I didn't see a lot of people. I wasn't happy, and I didn't want to lay that on everybody. Even when I was in public, I didn't want to be there, and that's a terrible feeling. It took me a while to want to come back." What saved Tom Petty's life -- other than music -- was his marriage in 2001 to Dana York. Petty (who in 1988 became a founding member of the Traveling Wilburys, with his mates Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne) was believed to have been badly affected by the deaths of Harrison in 2001 and, in particular, Howie Epstein in 2003. Howie died from an overdose of heroin not long after being sacked from Petty's band, The Heartbreakers. "We said, 'You're going to have to quit this. It's gonna get you. You just don't win with heroin. You die or you go to jail. There's no middle ground. There's no other options'," Petty said later. He wrote in an emotional piece for Rolling Stone "...there's a great sadness, because Howie was never not a Heartbreaker. He just got to where he couldn't do it anymore." Petty was born on October 20, 1950 in Gainesville, Florida. He had "a rough childhood", describing his late father, Earl, as "abusive". They never reconciled. That inner agony might go some way to explain why Tom has a singing voice like a handful of southern gravel. That voice, however, is memorable on classic songs such as Refugee, Don't Come Around Here No More, Into the Great Wide Open, Running Down a Dream and Free Falling. "He's had so many powerful hits, but he's never contrived hits to get in the charts," Paul Zollo, author of Conversations with Tom Petty, says. "His songs are about solid songwriting, craftsmanship, inventive lyrics and tremendous musicianship. It's never about trends and fitting into one time. "He had an authentic rock 'n' roll dream and realised it without getting derailed in a way so many musicians were. "More significantly, he had a burst of greatness in his 20s, but unlike so many others, he continued to create music with substance and meaning, and sustained that quality over decades. He's certainly in the pantheon." And in The Simpsons, too. He appeared as a cartoon version of himself on an episode of the show, showing Homer how to write a song about a hot local babe who is anxious about budget problems in public schools.

Voldar: , ., , , . Amazon exec who wanted Tom Petty to play at his wedding 'swindled out of $165,000 by bogus booking agent' An Amazon exec who proposed to his girlfriend at a Tom Petty concert was allegedly fleeced out of $165,000 by a fake booking agent claiming he could book the singer for the couple's wedding. Brian Valentine, 52, wanted Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to play at his wedding in July as a 'gift' to his new wife, fellow Amazon vice president Gianna Puerini, according to a criminal complaint. But after paying out the hefty sum and struggling to get through to the band's management to confirm the time, Valentine alerted the FBI, who arrested Chad 'Chris' Lund for suspected wire fraud. Despite his massive loss, there was a happy ending: Valentine could still afford to pay for the band to perform at the wedding in Seattle, Washington - this time, going through legitimate avenue The internet scam also came despite Valentine's lengthy background in computers; he worked for Microsoft for 19 years before joining Amazon on 2006. The criminal complaint, which refers to Valentine by his initials B.V., reveals that he became engaged to Puerini at a Petty concert in Seattle in June 2010, The Smoking Gun reported. They set the date for July 21, 2012 and last year, he 'decided that he wanted to have Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers perform at his wedding as a gift to his fiancé', FBI Agent Eric Petersen reported. Valentine went online to book Petty for the wedding and came across a now-deactivated website for Lund's firm, lundlive.com, which claimed it could book acts like Petty, Run-DMC and Ludacris. Lund, 44, claimed in an email that he 'had a relationship' with Petty's management and could settle a price for the show, eventually claiming they had agreed to $330,000, the complaint said. He gave Valentine a contract, which was apparently signed by Petty's manager Tony Dimitriades, and the Amazon exec wired half the fee - $165,000 - to Lund's bank account. Lund then gave Valentine the email address for Petty's production manager, and said he could contact him directly to 'work out the logistical details', according to the court documents. Yet Valentine was unable to reach him and so, just three months before the wedding, he contacted Petty's management company directly. 'We have never heard of Chris Lund or his agency,' Dimitriades wrote in an email. 'We are not aware of any deal for Tom Petty to play Seattle in July and I have never signed a contract for any such.' He added: 'It looks like you have been defrauded.' After seeing a copy of the contract he added that the signature was not his. Valentine hired a private investigator to track down the alleged scammer, who emailed him saying he had 'every intention of getting your $165,000 back to you out of my own personal funds'. But when the investigator told Valentine that Lund had left his Las Vegas home in early May, the tech boss contacted the FBI to report the fraud. Lund was tracked down in Illinois and arrested. He will appear in court on Monday. Valentine then paid for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to play a full set at his wedding at a space in Seattle's Industrial District. The payment has not been disclosed. 'The guy and his wife were the nicest people in the world,' a member of Pettys road crew told the Smoking Gun. The wedding planners, True Colors Events, wrote on their Facebook page: 'After over a year and a half of working with an absolutely incredible couple in complete secrecy, it was beyond amazing to surprise the guests of their wedding with these amazing performances...Congrats G & B.'

The Killers: "New Album Inspired by Tom Petty, Talking Heads, ELO" The Killers will unleash their fourth album, Battle Born, on September 18, and while their past releases channeled the music of Bruce Springsteen, the new material is inspired by a wider-range of artists, including another American music icon: Tom Petty. "The Petty flavor is in us," drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. explains. He adds that Battle Born will sound like "anything from Roxy Music to Jeff Lynne, ELO ... Talking Heads." Now that's an impressive mix. Excited! Fuse's Elaine Moran also grilled singer Brandon Flowers about his crazy fashion choices, including that feather-adorned jacket he sported during the band's last album cycle. His fashion inspirations?
