  • Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers - Refugee(Farm Aid 1985 )Tom Petty said of this song: "This was a reaction to the pressures of the music business. I wound up in a huge row with the record company when ABC Records tried to sell our contract to MCA Records without us knowing about it, despite a clause in our contract that said they didn't have the right to do that. I was so angry with the whole system that I think that had a lot to do with the tone of the Damn the Torpedoes album. I was in this defiant mood. I wasn't so conscious of it then, but I can look back and see what was happening. I find that's true a lot. It takes some time usually before you fully understand what's going on in a song - or maybe what led up to it."
Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell wrote the music and Petty added the lyrics. In our interview with Campbell, he told us about the recording process: "That was a hard record to make. It was a 4-track that I made at my house. Tom wrote over the music as it was, no changes, but it took us forever to actually cut the track. We just had a hard time getting the feel right. We must have recorded that 100 times. I remember being so frustrated with it one day that - I think this is the only time I ever did this - I just left the studio and went out of town for two days. I just couldn't take the pressure anymore, but then I came back and when we regrouped we were actually able to get it down on tape."

  • Happy fucking birthday to the hottest man alive!! Honestly, I'm so proud of him for all that he's been through and been able to overcome it, and for being helping people through his experience today and yet still being a radiant and energetic human being, a great father and husband and also a fucking good musician! We couldn't imagine a life without Nikki Sixx, which is why we're so happy for his life on a day like this! ❤

  • @azevon  Well, I'm literally speechless!! Anyone who knows me, knows I swear by the music as well as the dirty life and times of Warren Zevon! This arrived today via FedEx from my dear friend Eric Frost-Barnes! It's a numbered (3 of 10) photograph of Warren taken outside of The Roxy in Los Angeles by his good friend George Gruel circa 1982. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Eric!! I was feeling really down and out today and this was a shot to the heart I truly needed! I don't know what to say, just thanks! Eric is ten times the writer I'll ever live to be and every time I write a new screenplay, I try to channel him somehow! LOL! Thanks again, Brother! Oh, and get off your ass Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and induct Warren William Zevon!!!!!! #ahooo #happyxmas #roxy #warrenzevon #nofilter #icon #greatsongwriter #greatsong #legend #rockandrollhalloffame #rockandroll
