It’s Tom Petty’s birthday today – he’s 63 – and I thought you’d like to see this painting of him and Dylan in American Gothic mode. I don’t know who it’s by; it just popped up on the Facebook Tom Petty Friends page the other day. Here’s a clip of Tom’n’Bob in 1987.
And talking of the Tom Petty Friends, I’m pleased to say that the birthday video they’ve made this year includes me! So once TP wakes up and looks at Twitter he’ll be able to see me, his devoted fan, wishing him a happy birthday. (Well, perhaps.)
Also, this Lego version of the band appeared on blockaholic.com the other day…
Where do you get Lego guitars, I’d like to know? Anyway – have a happy TP birthday, everybody!
