Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are in town Thursday and Friday, but they had Wednesday all to themselves. So what did Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell do Wednesday night? He hit the stage in Somerville. There's nothing cooler than seeing a national musician up close in a intimate setting. I was blessed to see Don Henley up close on the A & M Records stage in Hollywood. Thanks Mike Campbell for giving your fans a memorable gift that does not happen often.
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are in town for two shows at TD Garden - they play Thursday and again Friday - but the band had Wednesday to itself. Some members no doubt just hung around the hotel catching up on "Game of Thrones" or old episodes of "Veep."
