FRIENDLY FIRE

Mojo (UK) - - Filter Reissues -

The fi­nal disc in An Amer­i­can Treasure high­lights Tom Petty’s late-pe­riod re­nais­sance with the Heart­break­ers; nearly half of the 16 tracks date from ses­sions for 2010’s Mojo and 2014’s Hyp­notic Eye. “I get ner­vous, to this day, bring­ing a song to the band,” Petty told me in 2009. “Ben­mont (pic­tured) can at­tack,” he noted, laugh­ing. “He broke bad on me one day. I was trying to show the band this song, ba­si­cally a 12-bar song with a few changes. He went, ‘What the fuck? You’re bet­ter than that.’ He let me have it.”
