I had a major depressive episode yesterday – a meltdown. Like millions of other Americans, I’m freaking out about the future of our nation thanks to the idiot in the White House. When things get like this, it’s good to find a diversion. For me, the diversion is animals and music.
Today, after a look at what’s news (as usual), we’ll ditch the politics and talk music. Jon Scott is a former record promotion guy who is responsible for breaking Tom Petty! Really. It’s detailed in his book, Tom Petty and Me, and it’s a fascinating story. We’ll talk with Jon Scott today and start the weekend with some music talk.
**Update: As promised, I posted my 1999 interview with Tom Petty on The Music Interviews page. I figured I might as well share it here too… Enjoy!
