I am grasping at functionality this morning with the help of my friend Coffee because Tom Petty spent last night melting my face. Luckily I wore two pairs of socks, because ol Thomas rocked the first pair right off. Pouring rain, drunk hippies and the opening act of Steve Winwood couldn't stop the onslaught of Rock - and now my Monday morning is like an episode of The Hills - confusing and painful. But the concert did provide some scientific discoveries for me:
Everyone likes Tom Petty.
Tom Petty is the musical currency of America.
Do any of you not like Tom Petty? I want to know. I don't mean you have to love Tom Petty, or even own Tom Petty albums - but does anyone out there actually dislike his music? I have met people who don't like The Beatles. I have also met people who didn't like The Rolling Stones (though don't ask me to name them because they are not dead to me) but I have never in my 24 years and 358 days met someone who didn't like Tom Petty.
Feel free to answer, if you don't like Tom I need to know to complete my research. I promise I won't make fun of you, Idiot.
(Ok you aren't an idiot for not liking Tom Petty - I might be a little dramatic. Please forgive me. While forgiving - check out the poll in the post below - at last count Lou Bega and Sisqo are having an all out battle for worst song ever. It's like Bum Fights but with more VH1.)
