The Petty 8ight with Scott Haskin

The Tom Petty Project

This episode is the first installment in a new feature for the podcast; The Petty 8ight!

I love talking to Pettyheads, musicians, and other people who have been influenced by Tom or his music in myriad ways, but I thought it would be neat to see what non-fans thought of Tom's music if I threw some songs at them.

My first guest is the creative hurricane, Scott Haskin, who aside from podcasting himself, is also a novelist, a humourist, a musician, a producer, a film composer, and an all round gem of a human being! We sat down for just about three hours and talked about music and art, and of course, the eight songs that I had given him to listen to and critique.

This episode will be a greatly condensed version of our chat, focusing on Scott's thoughts about the songs I threw at him. Check out a future episode where I'll be releasing the full-length director's cut!

A last very special thanks to Paul Zollo. Without his book, Conversations with Tom Petty, this podcast wouldn't be nearly as much fun to research.
