Episode 311: Wildflowers - Tom Petty [Discologist]

David Bowie was from Mars. Prince was from another universe. But Tom Petty? Tom Petty was one of us. And now he's gone.

Joining us in the basement to celebrate this legend's passing are our good friends Marcus K. Dowling (Decades, Capitol Wrestling), the National Museum of African American History and Culture's  Timothy Anne Burnside, and...Timothy's Mom.

It's a bittersweet episode of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast as we eulogize one of the greatest storytellers of the modern era by celebrating Wildflowers, Tom Petty's career-defining "solo" album that isn't just one of the best of his career, but one of the best LP's of all-time.


Daily Watch: "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around " - My Morning Jacket w/Neko Case AND Kelly Hogan -

Ok. So I said that the My Morning Jacket show last week might change you, and apparently it's changed us into raving fanboys. But we just can't seem to resist any cover that they're choosing to tackle right now...especially when you throw Neko Case AND Kelly Hogan up in the mix. It's a sort of sickness, but I'm not sure that we are looking for the cure.

Check out the video below to see the whole gang absolutely KILLING Tom Petty's classic "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around". Then ask yourself why you haven't seen this tour yet and figure out how you're going to correct that problem.
