Tom Petty - Don't Come Around Here No More

For around two weeks ago so we had to really celebrate a visit from no less than Tom Petty! It certainly was not last night he was here last, kind 20 years or so. That one have been waiting for this moment and wow what a gig it was. Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers rocked really at Globen and offered the entire registry when it came to selections from his musical treasure chest (check the setlist below).

Of course the camera went up, but only the portable camera, the "fine" camera had to stay home this evening. But Micke Sandström got the chance to shoot for real, so I take the opportunity to show some of his pictures, see below.

Thomas Earl "Tom" Petty (born October 20, 1950) is an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He is the frontman of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and was a founding member of the late 1980s supergroup Traveling Wilburys and Mudcrutch. He has also performed under the pseudonyms of Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr. and Muddy Wilbury.

He has recorded a number of hit singles with the Heartbreakers and as a solo artist, many of which remain heavily played on adult contemporary and classic rock radio. His music, and notably his hits, have become popular among younger generations as he continues to host sold-out shows. Throughout his career, Petty and his collaborators have sold 60 million albums.

Here are some pictures from the show, first my mediocre.

Here is some professional photos from the master man "Micke Sandström"

Todays tune "Don't Come Around Here No More" is a song written by Tom Petty of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics. It was released in February 1985 as the lead single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 1985 album "Southern Accents".

The background of the tune:

The original inspiration was a romantic encounter that Stewart had with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. On The Howard Stern Show, Dave Stewart explained that the title's phrase was actually uttered by Nicks. She had broken up with Joe Walsh the night before, and invited Stewart to her place for a party after an early Eurythmics show in Los Angeles. Stewart did not know who she was at the time, but went anyway. When the party goers all disappeared to a bathroom for a couple of hours to snort cocaine, he decided to go upstairs to bed. He woke up at 5am to find Nicks in his room trying on Victorian clothing and described the entire scenario as very much reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Later that morning, she told Walsh, "Don't come around here no more".
