Lunch Break

Top 10 Reasons to Love Tom Petty
1. Most apolitical American rock icon.  (Google Tom Petty and Obama and you will find one lukewarm positive statement that is negative about rock stars campaigning.)
2. Can project middle American attitudes without the artifice of Bruce Springsteen or John Mellancamp.
3. Never uses the word America or American as a term of irony or sarcasm.
4. Was “instrumental” in making Johnny Cash’s late career return so successful
5. Artistic integrity– cares about making great music and is generous to other artists
6. Personal integrity– some members of his band have been with him since high school
7. Cares about the fan– keeps ticket and album prices low.  New fantastic Live Anthology is 4 discs and can be bought for 20 bucks most places.
8. NO ONE has written more good songs.  NO one.
9. Was a regular voice on the conservative animated show “King of the Hill” for years.
10. Hasn’t made a bad album in about 30 years.
