This is the story of a band that feels like a band, with a charismatic leader and understated multi-talented lead guitarist, that has produced some of the finest and most tuneful American rock music of all time. Plummy Englishman Denny Cordell who first signed the band makes reference to Petty as a poet, and like most afficionados has a genuine admiration and affection for the band. The sadness at Howie Epstein's death is poignantly felt; footage of his decline into drug addiction is shocking, but in Ron Blair's return to the fold there is a sense of completion.
The 30th anniversary concert is equally impressive. Petty prowls the stage like the 'bad ass' he is described as in the documentary, but seems genuinely touched at the warm reception from the home crowd in Gainesville.Read more ›
In addition to the documentary, the musical content is all that you would expect.
Highly recommended, one of the best rock films I've seen...up there with The Last Waltz.
Even though I left it very late to get "into" TP&THB's I feel blessed to be a fan.
The words..the music..the feeling it gives to hear Tom's songs...The Band...the overall brilliance of a group of people that have been together (or very close) for thirty years.
Words cannot describe what I'm feeling right now.
You know whats right......... Rock on Tom :) and thankyou.
I put the first disk in and I was hooked. I took the second disk to work with me the next day and watched it there!
It has everything a good film should have, a great engaging story, humour, tragedy and a brilliant sound track. Tom Petty is such an inspiration to me, (I write music myself) and this only made those feelings stronger.
You must own this boxset!
