At 2:25, so Mike’s Les Paul Goldtop, ive seen him use it a lot in the early days, was it originally equipped with p-90′s and he put mini-humbuckers in it or vice versa? Without a doubt, one of the most underrated guitarists ever!
love the sunglasses tom i got a pair that looks pretty close to those
@Aaronlm91 …anything that’s rock n roll….it came of their first album titled tom petty and the heartbreakers
tom petty and the heartbreakers at their best!!!<3
Whats the first song they played?
@steelybass i hate this sentiment!! sick of hearing it
@matsutakneatche mediocre rockabilly? huh, interesting point of view. the heart breakers are really doing something completely different than radiohead. ive always thought an important part of it was paying homage to tradition. something that radiohead doesn’t seem to be as concerned with. to think about all the ground this band has covered is amazing: dominating the charts, innovative music videos, backing johnny cash, the wilburys, and wildflowers. You can’t deny that these guys love music!
@steelybass yeh right radiohead just doesnt compare to this mediocre rockabilly,lol
@spudgun05 that’s what youtube is for!
@steelybass that’s right mate the only thing on uk tv that is good is old jools holland for real music ,i think a program showing all the goodies would go down well ,,or are we getting old?? as the old stuff aint here now is it? what would they show
The musical afinity with the Dwight Twilley Band is uncanny. Petty certainly deserved the success, just wish DT and Phil Seymour had had a touch more of it too. Many thanks for the upload.
i still need to find a good pair of quality aviator shades. The shades they make today are too light, not super dark like they used to make in the 70s.
is this real . good video
thank you for posting this
i’ve been wanting to see this forever
they dont make em like they used too!!
bring back the old grey whistle test.. lets listen to some REAL music
Vox Super Beetle Cabinets in the 70′s.
a rare sight.
man toms having a great time in the beginning
OMG, I LOVE THEM!
Their first Hit anywhere. Weird because it got them lumped in with the punk bands, I think they got confused with Johnny Thunder and the Heartbreakers. I still have a “punk” stars album from 197x with Tom Petty as well as the Damned, Xrayspecs etc.
