As a teaser to the upcoming Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers box set, Live At The Fillmore (1997), a new nearly-nine-minute teaser has popped up online.
The new short film, dubbed, “The Fillmore House Band,” features clips of Petty and the band tearing through such classics as “Listen To Her Heart,” “Runnin’ Down A Dream,” “Heartbreakers Beach Party,” “American Girl,” “Jammin’ Me,” and “I Won’t Back Down.”
Also included are covers as the Everly Brothers‘ arrangement of Little Richard‘s “Lucille,” Chuck Berry‘s “Around And Around,” J.J. Cale‘s “Call Me The Breeze,” and Them‘s “Gloria.”
Heartbreakers co-founder Mike Campbell, whose band Dirty Knobs is currently opening for the Who, admitted to us that carrying on in the wake of Tom Petty’s 2017 death is still tough for him: “I don’t know if you’ve ever lost a brother or a family member, but it’s. . . I’ll never get over it completely. I’m still, y’know, going through the grief stages. But there was a short period of just, kinda, shuttin’ down and shock. And then you pick yourself up and go, ‘What and I gonna do? Sit around and be sad about this or get on with my music, y’know?’ And so, that’s what I’m doing.”
