“But you got a heart so big,
It could crush this town,
And I can't hold out forever,
Even walls fall down” -Tom Petty. 
A photograph from when we knew each other less than 2 weeks. Thanks for sharing your heart & time with me.

My favorite #BruceSpringsteen and #TomPetty songs were covered by @niallhoran tonight. And who would have thought that a 1D song would sound so good with a Police twist to it?  Shout out to Epi who let me drag her to a Niall concert as a pay back for her dragging me to a Slipknot concert some years ago (I almost pelted the clown with a water bottle cause of it 😂).

“Petty noticed two guys in the audience fighting. They had grabbed each other’s shirts and were shoving each other; they had yet to come to blows.
Petty signaled to the lighting crew and pointed toward the two men, and a spotlight shone down on the audience section, and then focused just on the two guys shoving each other. Then Petty signaled to the band to stop playing and the music came to a halt.
The two guys shoved each other a couple more times, and then stopped shoving and just stood there, holding each other's shirts and looking around, apparently realizing the spotlight was on them, and that the concert had stopped because of them. They also must have felt the thousands of pairs of eyes watching them.
Petty said into the microphone, ‘Hey, man, fighting isn't the answer, peace is the answer.’ The two guys slowly let go of each other’s shirts and just sort of stood there, stunned.
Petty signaled the band members to resume playing, and the spotlight turned away from the two guys in the audience, and the concert continued. It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.” - Mark Lambert on the #TomPetty and the Heartbreakers concert in Iowa in 1990, Des Moines Register, October 4, 2017 | #TomPetty | Photos © RockPicsAlive

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of #TheTravelingWilburys, ongoing series:
“George said to me, ‘We should have a group, me and you.’ I said, ‘Great, who would we have in it?’ He said, ‘Well, I’ll have #BobDylan.’ I said, ‘Can we have #RoyOrbison?’ We thought #TomPetty would be a great member of the group too; luckily so did Tom.” - #JeffLynne, excerpted from his foreword to the Genesis Publications Limited Edition Traveling Wilburys book, from the brochure //
“You try not to think about it, and there'd be times we'd all in the room playing together, and then out of nowhere it pops into your head, 'Oh my God, I'm playing with one of The Beatles!' That's usually when I'd hit a wrong chord.” - Tom Petty, Guitar World, 2004 //
“George was in such awe of Bob, if somebody came over to a session, he’d open a door and say, 'Look, it’s #BobDylan’. Whereas everybody else is opening another door going, 'That’s f------ #GeorgeHarrison.’ I loved him so much.” - Jeff, The Telegraph, 8 November 2015 //
“I loved him [George] so much, and if he had never played a note, I would have been so blessed to have him in my life.” - Tom Petty, Rolling Stone, 17 January 2002 🎸 Photo: Caroline Greyshock // #music #friendship #Wilburys30 #thateventuality

Pretty Cool part of the show from Saturday night.  Eddie Vedder brought out a guitar given to him by Tom Petty and played a tribute.  Got some good videos that I may post later but my camera skills weren’t so good as I was swaying with the music.  Pearl Jam was amazing and I am glad I finally got to see them for the first time.  #PearlJam #theawayshows #wrigleyfield #night1 #tompetty #wontbackdown

Thank you to all who came to watch me perform. It was truly a memorable evening. With each performance I feel a little more confident, but still nervous AF before goin on stage. I was really happy to see my dad in the crowd, and the many familiar faces to cheer me on through my mistakes. I’m working on my own music to share with you soon. Cheers to the next one ☝️ 🙏🏼 #anothaone -

“Yeah, nine times out of ten I get it wrong
That's why I wrote this song, told myself to hold on
I can feel my fingers slippin', in a motherf***n' instant I'll be gone
Do you want it all if it's all mediocre
Staring at the wall and the wall's full of posters
Lookin' at my dreams, and who I wanna be
I guess you gotta see it to believe
Oh, I been a fool, but that's cool, that's what human beings do
Keep your eyes to the sky, never glued to your shoes
Guess there was a time when my mind was consumed
But the sun's coming out now, clouds start to move
Don't tell me nothing but the truth
I'm tired, I don't gotta spare a second
Win or lose, win or lose”

I got chey this board a little while back and she’ll leave it up with little inspirational tidbits by the diffuser when she not using it for work. I decided it was my turn to leave my mark on it this week. So I made up a blend and now the vibes in the house just fit.

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, kill off the hours
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, find you a lover
Go away somewhere all bright and new
I have seen no other
Who compares with you

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, go find a lover
Run away, let your heart be your guide
You deserve the deepest of cover
You belong in that home by and by

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worries
You belong somewhere you feel free
You belong somewhere you feel free

Watch my Story and literally watch me write this music and these words. If you miss it before it disappears, I post archives on YouTube.com/jaymathesmusic. This piece is inspired by my meditation this afternoon on the death of #TomPetty (while listening to Full Moon Fever) and the many other celebrities who have died from overdoses (of one kind or another). I haven’t read much about Petty’s death specifically, but it reminded me of an American epidemic: pervasive, invasive, crippling depression. It has touched us all and our culture has no answer for it. Do you have an answer?

“STRAIGHT INTO DARKNESS”
It’s no wonder yesterday was a bleak, lightless, snow blowing, blustery day; Tom Petty died.
The deaths of musicians have been coming fast and furious. It’s almost as though the devil has been coming to collect the souls of all the ones that have sold theirs to him. We hope that’s not the case but it’s almost otherworldly to have, like in the case of Tom Petty, such immense talent.
So one of the first vinyl albums that I ever bought myself, and that wasn’t given to me as a hand me down, was Damn The Torpedoes. (Yes you’ve heard this story before,) I delivered newspapers to afford to buy it. So this was the one I was proudest of. I loved the Song Refugee. I loved the sentiments of being an outsider and not sacrificing your personal ideals to fit in expressed on Damn The Torpedoes. Tom Petty never did make such sacrifices. Next album I bought myself, not a Tom Petty album but one because of him, was Stevie Nicks’ Belladonna. I loved the first, of many, collaborations between Tom and Stevie, Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, which was the first single off her first solo album. It was such a fantastic song, and Tom could have shrewdly kept it for himself and included it on The Heartbreakers’ Hard Promises album, but he was just too giving and generous with his talents, the same way he gave Ways To Be Wicked to Lone Justice (although, nearly 30 years later his recording would appear on an album of outtakes, and it was incredible.) Whenever Tom and Stevie Nicks collaborated the end result was entirely harmonious magic. Recently, I heard a live duet between him and Eddie Vedder Of The Waiting. It was magical too, and it occurred to me that it was like he was the older brother of Eddie, handing him down his knowledge and ideals, and morals. Long before Pearl Jam’s war against Ticketmaster over the high price of concert tickets and their monopoly of the market, Tom Petty fought his record company over the $1 increase in record prices. That was Tom Petty, besides his musical talent, he was ballsy, he took risks, and went to bat for musicians everywhere. What I respected most about him was his fearlessness. #tompetty #tompettyandtheheartbreakers

Long before Pearl Jam’s war against Ticketmaster over the high price of concert tickets and their monopoly of the market, Tom Petty fought his record company over the $1 increase in record prices. That was Tom Petty, besides his musical talent, he was ballsy, he took risks, and went to bat for musicians everywhere. What I respected most about him was his fearlessness. #tompetty  #tompettyandtheheartbreakers
