Anyone who was at Viejas "Concerts in the Park" last night, 4-22 knows that jimmyh (last review) is unable to appreciate the fine talents of TP & the Heartbreakers.

Best of the best

The Heartbreakers are one of the best live bands you can see. Every show, without exception they put on an unbelievable performance. They stay true to the details of the orginal songs that made them popular, yet make them sound even better than the originals. Never miss their show when they come to town!

Please retire

Like many once-great musicians, Tom Petty falls into the "should have quit while they were ahead" category. He had some enjoyable hits in his early years, and while his music has never been really profound, he once was a talented musician who knew how to write a song. Over time, his pool of inspiration has run dry, and aside from his irritating Dylan-esque singing voice, his songs have become indistinguishable from the rest of the musically unremarkable and unimaginative junk that is available today.
