What a way to start a Friday: reading good news (Hat tip: Bryan Crain). Rolling Stone.com is reporting that Jeff Lynne is producing the new Tom Petty (solo) album due out later this year or early next. Of all of the incredible people Jeff has collaborated with over the years, his Tom Petty collaborations have yielded some of his strongest material. To me, it's always been a perfect blending of two great musical minds and I always hoped they would work together again.
Tom is enjoying a rather successful concert tour and playing one of his new songs, "Turn This Car Around." I missed the tour when it came to the Philly area, but a friend and co-worker who did go, loved it.
