Pure Luck’s Payoff
“Outlaw country mixed with Southern rock, mixed with toad licking,” appraises Jeff Pinkus of the rootsy, ne’er-do-well anthems on Pure Luck’s eponymous debut. “It’s got a lot of psychedelia – songs taking you to a different place than you thought you’d go.

Tom Petty Soaks in 40
“I’m thinking it may be the last trip around the country,” Tom Petty told Rolling Stone in December about his Heartbreakers’ 40th anniversary tour.
