How a bunch of guys hailing from Berkeley, California, could sound like they just walked out of Cajun country has always been a mystery to me, but CCR did it with authority. This is one of the greatest rock n’ roll bands ever. And by the way, happy birthday to Tom Fogerty!

Happy 43rd birthday release date for the self-titled Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers debut album, released on November 9, 1976. To hear Petty tell the story, it just sat there and did nothing initially. Then somebody came in and said, “They’re playing you up in Boston.” The rest, I am happy to say as a native Bostonian, is history.

10:00 a.m. The Band: The Last Waltz
If someone were to ask me the greatest American band next to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, it wouldn’t be The Eagles. It would be these guys.

The Last Waltz was a fitting farewell for The Band, with the likes of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, and Van Morrison taking part. Here’s the music. We’ll be live streaming the movie in the next few weeks.
