Tom Petty, one of rock’s most vital, creative and hard rocking artist, is 63 years old today, October 20th. As an artist, he has been on top for almost 40 years, starting with his first LP, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1976, and he is still going strong with his Heartbreakers.
The Norwegian Wood festival in Oslo has a pretty impressive line-up this year – as usual. The first night Bryan Ferry was the headliner with a 12 man band, and yesterday night Lenny Kravitz played before the greates of them all, Tom Pretty & The Heartbreakers. Since Kravitz presented an unacceptable photo contract, I took no pictures of him. But Tom Petty had no contract, and did a great show for a sold out festival.
