New Tom Petty and the Hearbreakers album and tour! has posted a new track called Good Enough that will be on the forthcoming Heartbreakers album Mojo. On first listen this sounds really fantastic. It starts out as a dirge-like slow blues and morphs into a wicked Mike Campbell blues guitar solo rave up. Campbell has always been a tone-meister rather than a smoking soloist, and fittingly enough his tone on this track is great, sounding quite different than the last few albums, but this is a blistering solo as well!

Pollstar has also posted a full tour schedule for North America in the Spring of 2010!

John Bonham

There really is no disputing that John Bonham is in the top five of all-time greatest rock drummers and its not hard to make a case for him being numero uno on that list. If you are at all a fan of rock music, this is not new information to you.
But its good to be reminded now and then why we hold the greats in such high esteem. Its not just because of their reputation, its really because of the things they did to earn the reputation in the first place.

So give this a viewing and then bow down before the mighty, mighty, mighty JOHN BONHAM!
