Ironically, my wife and I were talking tonight about what would become of the Heartbreakers now. We had no answer. Petty was the/their only songwriter. I'm pretty sure Campbell and Blair could find work if they wanted it. Of course Benmont Tench has been moonlighting for years. Steve Ferrone is a great drummer, and Scott Thurston a terrific multi-instrumentalist, but still...what comes of a great band apparently dependent on its namesake?

That is some kind of dj programming genius to follow The Who' s The real me with this song. I never would have picked up on the rythmatic matching of these songs. Nice work RP!

It is odd that with such a driving tempo he ended up using such a "laid-back" singing style.  Well, I guess he knows what he's doing; good tune.

Co-produced by Tom Petty & Mike Campbell (the guitarist).  I agree — awesome guitar tone.

I find this to be every bit as good or better than anything they have ever done. Truly a blistering guitar number, and Tom's voice is cool!

Actually, on this track Campbell sounds like he's doing his best Jeff Beck. High praise indeed.

 
Good point; if you're going to emulate another guitar player why not emulate one of the best?  I'll bet the drummer was happy that he finally got to play a different beat and tempo.

If you've ever seen Tom Petty, he runs a tight show. This tune is evidence.
