tom petty has carried the torch at heart of rock & roll in our time, the Beatles and Dylan picked it up when Elvis faltered and dropped it. then, tom petty, and a few others, took it from them when they fell by the wayside, exhausted by their labors. now that petty's great work is done, who will continue the journey? my vision is cloudy, i am from another generation long passed. but i believe that when the rappers are gone, rock and roll, to paraphrase, neil young will still be here to stay

now this is a whole different animal from gladys and marvin. ( i feel like i can call them by their first name because i'm so into the music. otherwise, sometimes i think it's pretentious. ) john fogerty was a genius. his band mates including his brother were so jealous of him that they insisted on doing an album of their their songs. it bombed. I remember dancing to born on the bayou after i failed my army physical which meant i wouldn't have to go to vietnam. i'd be lying if i said i was sorry
