As happened last year, pandemic conditions caused the traditional RSD April event to be delayed and broken up into two theoretically crowd-suppressing halves, with the first of two RSD Drops 2021 events happening Saturday.

Tom Petty was ready to duke it out on the final episode of Garry Shandling's The Larry Sanders Show, which aired 23 years ago on May 31, 1998. Appearing as himself on the show, Petty sparked a scuffle first with actor Greg Kinnear and then with country singer Clint Black over who would be singing Larry's farewell song. "I haven't seen such a rumble since the Stones played Altamont," says Artie (Rip Thorn) as he breaks up the fight. "Well then you don't need me, you already got Roy Rogers," Petty tartly replies, gesturing to Black. The rumble starts right back up.

There is that one song (or a few), which takes you back to when you were a child. All of those memories regarding family, friendship, faith, and fellowship. You remember Sunday school. You reminesce on the answers to your prayers. Going to bed, late at night, you prayed to Yeshua Ha Maschiach, asking for Divine protection, and good things to come. You prayed for all of these things because, as a child, you believed in the miracle (and the power) of faith! It didn’t matter if you were made fun of, and teased for the strength of your faith. None of that mattered. For you held onto that feeling that everything would be alright. You held onto it-nice and tight!

Tom Petty’s first single came with the Heartbreakers on the band’s self-titled debut album in 1976. Written by Petty and performed by him, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Ron Blair and Stan Lynch, “Breakdown” clocks in at less than three minutes. Though when performed live, Petty nearly doubled its runtime because of an added guitar solo, which was actually part of the original recording. On that same note, the distinctive guitar riff that begins “Breakdown” was actually intended to just be used at the end, but when a fellow musician suggested weaving it throughout the song, Petty called his band back into the studio in the middle of the night to re-record the now-famous version.

As defined at its official website, the Resynator is “an instrument-controlled, monophonic, rack-mount analog/digital hybrid synthesizer from the late ’70s. Invented by Don Tavel and engineered by Mike Beigel, this synthesizer can track the pitch of anything from the lowest note on a bass to the highest note of a piccolo.”
Resynator is "a documentary film-in-progress that shares the unique journey of a daughter connecting with her late father through the resurrection of a synthesizer from the 1970s that he invented," and there have also been some cool covers coming out that use the newly resurrected synth. The first was of Tom Petty's "Honey Bee" with vocals by Grace Potter, followed by a cover of Kraftwerk's "Computer Love" with Lucius and War On Drugs/Beirut member Jon Natchez, and now they've released another Petty cover, this time of "Only A Broken Heart" with The National's Matt Berninger and Ronboy. It's a gorgeous cover, with Matt's unmistakable voice leading the way over ambient synths, and lovely harmonizing/duetting from Ronboy. Listen to all three Resynator covers and watch a trailer for the upcoming documentary below.

Ann Wilson made a special appearance at a recent Gov’t Mule concert, joining the Southern rock jam band for an extended set, including covers of Led Zeppelin and Tom Petty. Gov’t Mule had begun their evening with a setlist made up largely of originals, but their songs alongside Wilson would almost entirely be covers. The Heart singer joined the group for a rendition of Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” before moving on to a blues medley of Memphis Slim's "Mother Earth" and Willie Dixon's "You Shook Me" (Heart combined the same two blues standards on their 1977 LP Magazine). From there, they returned to Zeppelin material, delivering rousing renditions of “Black Dog” and “No Quarter.”
