    An old Tom Petty and Heartbreakers song I've always loved and played live many times.

    I used doubled Telecaster Deluxe and SG guitars plugged to a mic'ed Mesa Boogie Mark V 25 amp and 1x12 cab with a V30. Only pedal used was a bit of delay from a Flashback 2. I also play a Fender jazz bass and do some background vocals with the recording production.

    Excellent vocals from Ian Williams. Steve Perry keyboard and Mike Dennis on drums.
    Hope we did Tom justice - his music lives on while he rests in peace.

    Very well done, Waxhead.
    You got a tasteful tone all over the record. The Mark V is truly a beast. So versatile it is ridiculous.
