Tom Petty is a really good song writer and musician. I like that he is speaking out on issues even more. He has blasted the Catholic Church and Christians for supporting war and violence in our society. I like the idea of seeing him as an alternative to Ted Nugent. Nugent gives rock and roll a bad name and reputation.

Such stupidity makes a fool of those who learned through trial and error to develop a style of music, singing and song writing. Shows such as American Idol have bastardized our pop culture. -Otto
