    Wrong band, but twisting a Cheap Trick lyric: "He's not the first, won't be the last" :)

    I liked Petty from the beginning. Good stuff, own style, and had something to say.

    Classic rock station is playing a lot.

    Big loss.

    "The vampires move west down Ventura Boulevard" always made me smile.

    As the plane begins its descent into L.A., Petty turns to me and adds, "Sometimes I feel really gracious. Everything is really good, the world is so wonderful. It doesn't last very long. I'm always pissed off at something again. It's the best position for observing. You see all these groups get to the top, get too content and then blow it with bad music." He gulps down the last of his coffee. "Our intention is to stay pissed off."


    Interesting early career interview.

    Evidently he had some demons.

    Equivalent Venn Diagram for Rock-n-Roll
