Thank you -- I'm here all week. Try the veal.
But seriously, I chanced across this on YouTube the other day, and it absolutely blows my mind.
A surprisingly old -- but still annoyingly handsome -- Jackson Browne covering Petty's most overly Byrds-ish song, "The Waiting." And quite gorgeously.
I've probably told this story before, but it behooves repeating.
Obviously, there have been a lot of rock star deaths that have saddened me over the years, but I remain surprised by my reaction to this one.
Short version: I was home in Hackensack (taking care of my late mother) in the end of October 2017 when the word of Tom's passing suddenly showed up on my computer.
I was actually listening to his debut album at the time.
In any case,I wept out loud.
For ten minutes. Non-stop.
I mean, I didn't do that when John freaking Lennon was assassinated.
