This is Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, one of America’s last great rock ‘n’ roll bands. (after Masters Of War)

Thank you. Here’s one I wrote about twenty years ago. About (inaudible). (before It Ain’t Me, Babe)

Thank you. People say that (inaudible) my favorite song too. (inaudible) It was just (inaudible) it’s that time, that’s all. Anyway, we’re gonna close (inaudible) tonight now. Oh yes, we are. Everybody (inaudible) their heroes, you know. Lots of people…their hero may probably be Ronald Reagan. I’m sure you’ve heard of him. And some other people they have heroes. (inaudible) Shut up now! Shut up! Ronald Reagan, he’s a hero. You know, lots of the heroes even have a hero. Al Pacino is a hero. Oh yes. That’s right, Richard Price is a hero for those people. Even Mohammed Ali was a hero for them. That’s right. And of course, Bruce Springsteen became a hero. But none of those people are heroes to me. I’ve got my own hero. I wanna sing you a song about it now. (before In The Garden)

Thank you. You’re a kind audience. One of the greatest guitar players in the world actually is (…..) was fast asleep. We go back a few years, he’s been on several of my records. He helped me produce one. You all know him, because you’ve heard of the Dire Straits. Here he is now, Mr. Mark Knopfler. (after Blowin’ In The Wind)

BobTalk

Thank you. The name of that song of course was Trust Yourself. If you hadn’t guessed.

All right, thank you all. I wanna introduce to you right now, one of America’s last great rock ‘n’ roll bands, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. (after Masters Of War)

We played that already, you missed it, you got here late. [in response to shouts from the audience] We got a song that we wanna play for you, ‘cause it’s kind of like the music we were raised on. We have no idea where all this music nowadays comes from. Of course the song It’s Alright, Ma, that one came out of Nashville, anyway (…..). Tom Petty (…..). (sings I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know) We had to do that song ‘cause we both sing about the same person. [in response to shouts from the audience] Told you man, you missed it.

All right, thank you. That was called House Of The Risin’ Sun. You’ll find it in New Orleans if you ever take a trip down there.

How are you all doing out there? (…..). You know we can't play it all. We just have to pick out certain ones, you know. Got any individuals in the crowd tonight? Anybody out there who thinks for themselves? Well, don't let anybody take that away now. Always (…..) thing, isn't it? (…..) they don’t understand. Ain't that the truth? Anybody out there that's misunderstood in any kind of way? Hmm, you’re a lucky bunch of people. Me, I'm misunderstood all the time. Just about everything I do is misunderstood. It gets hard you know. Sometimes even your best friends don't understand. Has that ever happened to anybody out there? Hmm, maybe once in a while, right? Well, let me tell you it's OK to be misunderstood. All anybody can do is kill you, right? All you can do is die, ain't that right? That's not such a bad thing. There's a lot of things worse than death. Is that right or not? Hmm, I don't know, maybe it's not. I guess if nobody agrees with me, maybe it's not right. I'd hate to fall out of agreement with anybody. I guess this world is run on people who are always in agreement with everybody, ain't that right? People just do what they wanna do anyway. Anyway, this is a song about somebody who's (sort of) misunderstood some of the time. For all those people out there I wanna sing this song. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)

OK. All right. Uncle Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are gonna play a few more songs for you. (after Ballad Of A Thin Man)

It's about that time of the evening again when we have to bid each other adieu. But before I get out of here I gotta sing you all this one song. This is a song about my hero. Everybody got heroes, right? For lots of people Mohammed Ali's a hero, right? Yeah. And Albert Einstein, he sure was a hero. I guess you could say even Clark Gable was a hero. Michael Jackson, he's a hero, right? Bruce Springsteen. I care nothing about them people though. None of those people are my heroes, they don't mean nothing to me. I'm sorry but that's the truth. I wanna sing a song about my hero. (before In The Garden)

Anybody out there…anybody out there know how to tune a guitar? I don't. I forgot how to tune a guitar a long time ago. (…..) tune this guitar? Low string. Well, that's good enough for folk music, right. This is a song I wanna play for you now called Money Money Money It's So Hard To Get, Money Money Money It's Faster Spent, Roll 'Em Over Baby And Rock 'Em Dead.

Thank you, all right. We have a very special friend here tonight whose birthday is today. So if you all wanna help me out here, I want to sing Happy Birthday to my very special friend. Her name is Queen Esther. So, you know Happy Birthday. You know how it goes. It goes like this. (sings Happy Birthday) <inaudible>. Anyway, I had to do that, because I forgot to get her a birthday present.

Thank you. Thank you. Lets have some light up here. A little bit more light. All right, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are gonna play a few more songs for you so give 'em a warm hand. (after Ballad Of A Thin Man)

All right, we're gonna try something different here. Here's something I wrote a while back, it’s all about the space program. I suppose you heard about this tragedy, right? I don’t need to tell you it really was a tragedy. It was a tragedy , it really was a tragedy. You see, these people had no business going up there. Like, there's not enough problems on Earth to solve? So I wanna dedicate this song to all those poor people, who were fooled into going up there. (before License To Kill)

All right, thank you. Thank you very much. Another hand for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. On the keyboards, Benmont Tench. On the drums, Stan Lynch. You can do better than that. Playing the bass, Howie Epstein. You can clap louder than that. On the guitar, Mike Campbell. And on, the center, Tom Petty himself. You know my singing girls are over there. I know you know who they are. It’s now that time ... (loud calls from the audience) Shut up! Shut up! Anyway it's that time of the night when we must part company. Anyway I wanna sing you a song about my hero. Everybody's got a hero, right? You know back in the States Ronald Reagan is a big hero to a lot of people. Sylvester Stallone he's also a hero. Ever heard of him? Or over here maybe Mad Max is a hero? Yeah we got a lot of heroes over in the United States at the moment. Michael Jackson, he's one of the biggest. And my good friend Bruce Springsteen. He's turned into quite a hero these days. I'll tell you something. I don't care nothing about none of these people. I got a different hero. He might have lived a long time ago, but you know what was good yesterday is still good today. He's the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. I don't know if these current heroes are gonna be. (before In The Garden)

<inaudible> and she is here right here all the way from the shores of the USA. (before Knockin' On Heaven's Door)

BobTalk

Thank you. Good evening. All right, I'm Bob Dylan, this is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. <inaudible> Queens Of Rhythm. This is a song I wrote in my protest song period. Actually, I'm still in that period. It's still relevant don't you think. Well this is one I wrote a pretty long time ago, but it still holds up pretty good. And we're gonna do it for you now called Masters Of War.

Thank you. That last song was called Lenny Bruce. It's off some obscure record that I made. <rest mostly inaudible>

Thank you. All right, Like A Rolling Stone. All right, it's that time of the evening again when we must part company. It always happens. Anyway, I want to sing you a song about my hero. Everybody has a hero these days. I know I got one. Sylvester Stallone he's one. Anti-hero. I think so. Ronald Reagan is a hero to many people. [booing] I know, I know, but he is. Michael Jackson, he's a hero. Bruce Springsteen he's a big hero. Anyway <loud calls from the audience> Shut up! I don't care nothing about those people, none of those people are heroes to me. I wanna tell you now about my hero. (before In The Garden)

Bob Talk

All right. This is a song I wrote about twelve years ago in my <cough> protest period. And I'm still kind of in that period. All right, there's still certainly a lot to protest about, ain't that right? Anyway, I wrote this about at least twenty years ago and it still holds up pretty good so I'm gonna sing it for you now. Called Masters Of War.

Thank you, all right, you’re a very kind audience! All right, I gotta get out of here now for a minute now. I'm gonna leave you with one of the last great American Rock and Roll bands. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Give them a warm hand. (after Masters Of War).

Thank you. I broke a string on that last song. Somewhere in the first verse. <inaudible> Some performers they just stop when that happens. Anyway, you know, I’m from the States <inaudible> I come from someplace called the Midwest. I figure if I had come from the South I'd probably either killed somebody or been killed by this time. Anyway, hmm I used to know this special person up there and I wrote this song for her a long time ago. (before Girl Of The North Country)

Thank you. I wanna bring Tom Petty here now. I wanna do a song that people used to rave about. This is a song they used to play on the radio. They don’t play this kind of stuff anymore. I wanna sing you a song with <inaudible>. (before I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know)

All right. Anyway, you know Tennessee Williams he died in a hotel room in New York City. He was one of America’s great artists <inaudible> appreciate it. In fact people are doing now today much far worse things than he ever did and they’re making lots of money cash. I’m writing a song about another guy. I wrote this one a while back because I figured he deserved it. He deserves something, he didn’t get anything at all when he was alive, that’s for sure. And just like Tennessee Williams, there are people now who are much further than he did, but he laid his body down for them. (before Lenny Bruce)

All right, thank you. This is a song I wrote a while back, about .... People keep asking me questions. <loud calls from the audience> Shut up now! Shut up! <cheering> They’re always asking me questions that you can’t or anybody else can’t answer, you know. So, you know like “what's your political life like? Or your religious life?” Personal questions like ..., you know even about your love life. So anyway, I don't answer any of them questions. People are asking me about my songs <inaudible> You know, because there comes a time when people have to be put in their place, ain't that right? It even happens to me once in a while. And I'm glad when, when someone puts me in my place. Cause sometimes, that needs to be done. Anyway this here is a song about somebody else that I figured I just had to put in his place. I’m not sure if he’s still there. I don't even know if he got there. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)

All right, everybody must get stoned! That's a song that can be sung in a couple of tones and took a couple of ways. Like that. Well here's one that can only be taken one way. Only taken one way. You see if you can figure out what that is. (before Seeing The Real You At Last)

Thank you, all right. It’s about that time of the evening again when we must part company. Anyway, I just want to sing you a song about my hero. You know, everybody’s got their heroes today. <audience: Hurricane!> You know, where I come from, Sylvester Stallone is a big hero, awfully big hero <inaudible> Ronald Reagan’s a hero to many people <booing in the audience> Oh, I know, I know, but he’s still a hero to a lot of people you know. Michael Jackson,, he’s giant <inaudible> You know, I don’t care nothing about none of those people. None of those people are heroes to me. I’ll sing a song right now about my hero.

BobTalk

Thank you. This is a song I wrote about twenty, twenty or thirty years ago, at least. It was in my so called protest period. Still kind of in that period really. Oh yes, I am. Yes, I am. And ..., there's still plenty to protest about I guess. Anyway this one I wrote, like I said, twenty or thirty years ago and it still holds out so I wanna play it for you now, called Masters Of War.

Thank you. I wanna introduce you now to one of the finest Rock and Roll bands in the United States and certainly one of my favorites. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. (after Masters Of War)

Anybody here who hasn't heard of Tennessee Williams. Ah, I guess not. Anyway he was a great playwright. He's written some great stuff. From New Orleans, Louisiana. He wrote stuff like "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Sweet Bird Of Youth" and “Fugitive Kind”, all that kind of stuff. Anyway, he died a few years back in New York City. Nobody even found him till the next day. In his last days he really couldn't get a job. And there’s another artist like that. He couldn't get a job either really, but he was way before his time. A lot of people picked up on what he did, and they took it around. They stole it from him after he was dead. And they're making plenty of money now, and they've all got big names. So I thought maybe just for his sake somebody had to say something about it, so I took it upon myself to write a song about him one time. And I'd like to play that song for you now. (before Lenny Bruce)

Thank you. We're in Lonesome Town, learning to forget. Sometimes you got to do that. God knows, there's enough to remember. You got to find someplace to forget about it all. All right now, here's another song I wrote quite a while back. May be forty-five years ago. Anyway, this one still holds up too. I'm almost surprised myself. Anyway, you know famous people they have to do press conferences. I'm sure you've heard about them. And you sit there and you kind of face ... shut up, please! ... so you sit there and you’re faced by oh maybe a hundred, two hundred people and they're all asking .... Did someone get hurt? <comment regarding ambulance sirens>. So they ask you all different questions about your personal life, you know. Your politics, your religion,  your love life, your sex life, just about everything. And, you know, it don't make no sense to answer these kind of questions, to me or anybody else really. I just don’t think it’s a good idea to be answering personal questions. I figure a person’s life speaks for itself. So, every once in a while somebody got to put somebody in their place, so I wrote a song about that. Puttin’ somebody in their place. You got to do that once in a while. It just so happens that way. I know sometimes once in a while I got to be put in my place, and I rather appreciate it actually. <girl shouting in the audience> Why, you got such a loud mouth! So, you wanna come up on stage and sing a song? I been doing this for forty years longer than you have. What do you wanna say that's so important? <inaudible response> Well, just get up! Climb over there I'm not gonna stop ya. You think some bullies gonna hit you on the head? No, you be a good girl. (plays Ballad Of A Thin Man) Thanks a lot! I wanna thank that beautiful girl for her perfectly Nashville sweater. Once more Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Name of that song was Everybody Must Get Stoned. You can take that a couple of ways. Can be taken a couple of ways, that song, Everybody Must Get Stoned. Everybody must get their guitar tuned up. So, anyway. here's a song that can’t be taken one way. Just one meaning to that. Here it is now. (before Seeing The Real You At Last)

Thank you, thank you for coming. I wanna thank Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for backing me up tonight. On the keyboards, Benmont Tench. On the drums, Stan Lynch. Bass guitar, Howie Epstein. Michael Campbell on lead guitar. I especially wanna thank Mr. Tom Petty. And of course my singing partners, the Queens of Rhythm. (before Like A Rolling Stone)

Still feels the same. Never change. All right now, we gonna close up here. <inaudible>. I'll sing you a song about my hero. Everybody has got a hero. I don't know who your particular hero is. Where I come from my hero wears a brown wig and he's a big hero too. Michael Jackson, he's a big hero. Of course Mr. Woody Woodpecker. Ha-ha-ha. Bruce Springsteen. Oh who? John Williams? I guess so he’s a hero. Yeah. Anyway none of those people mean nothing to me. They ain't my hero. I'm gonna sing a song about my hero. (at the start of In The Garden).

BobTalk

It's cold up here tonight. Is it cold out there? A cold place. (....) I wanna sing a song now that I recorded about twenty years ago. During my (cough, cough) protest period. I'm sort of still in that period (....) called Masters Of War. It meant something then and it still does now.

Thank you. I wanna introduce you to America's finest Rock n Roll band, certainly one of my favorites, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

All right, you know I come from the United States, an awful big country. And it has lots of different parts. People are sort of different all over the place. Anyway, I come from like a part called the Midwest. It's kind of nice there at certain parts of the year. If you go up South, by this time I'd either have been killed, or killed somebody, so I figured I was kind of lucky to grow up down there. You know of course if I had grown up out on the West I'd have been a Beach Boy! East, I never really did consider, ha-ha. Here's a song about someone I used to know a long time ago. Seems like just the other day, though. (before Girl Of The North Country)

All right, Tom's gonna come back up, (....) we just feel like we wanna play this song. This is the kind of music that we as kids were raised up on. Sounds like this. No kind of guitar loose. Anyway they used to play these kind of things on the radio all the time. As I suppose now you can't hear a real song on the radio. It wasn't always the same. Most of the time you just don't. But we were just fortunate enough to come up during a time when they used to play real songs with real feelings on the radio. This one is kind of synonymous. (before I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know)

All right, hmm. Anybody here who hasn't heard of Tennessee Williams? I guess everybody knows who that is. Anyway, he wrote these incredible lines you know, he says, what he say again, "I'm not looking for your pity, but just your understanding. Not even that, no, just your recognition of you and me and the beginning of time in us all." I used to think about those lines a lot. Anyway, you can't hear stuff like "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Fugitive Kind" you've heard of these all kinds of places. A few years back he died in New York City hotel room all by himself and nobody even found him until the next day. He was there because he couldn't get a job. A man who does that (....) Anyway, here's another person who I listen to. Kind of a bit before his time actually. I thought he was right on time, but I guess most everybody else didn't. He was about ten years older than his time. What he did back then he got crucified for, other people do it now and make a lot of money doin’ it. And I never would write a song about them, but I did write a song about this man. (before Lenny Bruce)

All right, thank you. You know the kind of people that always say "impress me, impress me". As if they can't impress themselves. People always sitting in judgment on you. I bet everybody knows somebody like that. I know quite a few. I don't pay no attention to them though. They don't bother me none. Still, however, every once in a while I (....). Cause I ain't got no way of getting back you know. Can't shoot them. Some people just ain't worth shooting. So the only kind of way I get back is to write songs. I wish everybody could do that, surely. (before When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky)

Thank you. Without a Lonesome Town you forget. You gotta go someplace to forget. God knows there's enough to remember, huh? All right, here's another song. I'm almost embarrassed to play it. I wrote it 40 years ago. Anyway, this one was called, subtitled “Famous people”, I always tell the story when I do this song. Famous people always get in the position where they have to do what they call Press Conferences. You get a lot of people from newspapers. It used to be just news readers but now it's TV and stuff like that. And they ask you a lot of questions and you're supposed to answer them all. Most of the  questions have to deal with your personal life. You know like ..., you can't tell them that because then they may put that in the paper, ha-ha-ha, so you have to do it some other kind of way. Everybody seems to want to know personal things like, politics religious things, sexual things. I don't know why they feel they can ask me those things, but I don't reply to those kind of questions. I let my songs speak for themselves. Not only that, a person’s life speaks for itself. Don't matter what you say, don't matter at all anyway. It's what you do that counts. Here's one of those songs now, just had to be done one time. Put somebody in their place. Every once in a while somebody's got to be put into their place. Cause they don't want to go. But it's a good thing to put somebody in their place. If you get the opportunity to do it, you should do it. It's even happened to me a few times. I've been put in my place and I’d rather appreciate it in the long run. So I'm gonna tell you now, if you know you're right you just go on ahead. And put somebody in their place. (plays Ballad Of A Thin Man) Thank you! Once again now Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

All right, yeah! Everybody must get stoned. It's out of my hands now. That can be taken a couple of ways, though. Various things can be taken a couple of ways. So here's one that can't be.

Thank you. I wanna thank Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for backing me up tonight. On the keyboards, give him a warm hand, Benmont Tench. On the bass tonight, Howie Epstein. On the drums, Stan Lynch. OK, is that a big enough hand for you? Stan Lynch on the drums, give him another hand. Playing lead guitar tonight, Mike Campbell. I especially wanna thank Mr. Tom Petty himself standing there. And of course my singing partners, the singing Queens of Rhythm. (before Like A Rolling Stone)

All right. We're gonna get out of here, it's about that time of the night. A little late for me, it's way past my bedtime. You’ve been a great crowd, I hope we played good. (....) hard waking up, it takes a while. Anyway, I’m gonna sing a song now about my hero. Everybody's got a hero, I know they do. Shut up there! Everybody's got a hero I know they do. Whether you admit it or not, you do. Some people’s hero is ... well, women. Money is a great hero. Success is a great hero. Tom Petty is a great hero. Ha-ha. This man's a hero, ha-ha. Jane Fonda's a hero. Michael Jackson is a big hero. And of course Bruce Springsteen. None of these people mean nothing to me though. I don't care. I wanna sing about my hero.

BobTalk

Motorcycle gang huh huh. God knows a person needs all the help he can get. I'll take it from anybody. (before Trust Yourself)

Thank you. This is a song here I wrote about twenty or thirty years ago. In my so called protest period. I'm still in that period. Don't let anybody fool you. Anyway, this one holds up pretty well so I still do it. It's called Masters Of War.

Thank you! I wanna introduce you right now to one of America's finest Rock ‘n’ Roll bands and they’re one of my favorites. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. (after Masters Of War)

Here's a song I wrote a long time ago. About a friend of mine, one time. I haven't seen her for about twenty or thirty years, but every time I sing this song I think about her. (before Girl Of The North Country)

Anyway, I do this song to show that your life is not a personality contest. No matter what people think of you. (before Lenny Bruce)

All right, thank you. This is a song I had out a while ago on my last record that I made. My 65th, actually I have about 300 albums out. I don't really know where they are, but they're not selling. So this is a song I wrote about people sitting judgment on other people. I can't stand this kind of people. I hate people sitting judgment on other people. People you got to impress all the time. I can't stand that kind of stuff. (before When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky)

Right, going down to Lonesome Town. Trying to forget. There is a lot to forget. All right, here's another old song I wrote a while back. Funny how these songs keep coming back. Every once in a while we got to put somebody in their place. I know it's not a good experience, but sometimes it must be done. And if somehow, .... what is it? Oh yeah? I will not ...., I've  never heard of him actually before. Anyway, yeah, you may have to put somebody in their place. It's a good thing to put somebody in their place, it needs to be done sometimes. I know I've been put in my place a few times and I’ve rather appreciated it in the long run. It's made me kind of appreciate better things actually. But don't you be afraid to do that once in a while now, because if nobody does it, it never gets done. Sometimes it's things that you know a lie won't do. And a lie’s a good thing cause it sometimes gets used in the wrong way. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)

All right, everybody must get stoned! That can be taken two different ways. Quite a few of my songs can be taken a few different ways. Sometimes we do something out of the ordinary, people will be stoned. I wish I could get the time one day. However, here's a song that can be taken but one way. (before Seeing The Real You At Last)

I wanna thank Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for backing me up tonight. On the keyboards, give him a big hand, Benmont Tench. On the bass, Howie Epstein. Playing drums tonight, Stan Lynch. Give him a big hand. On lead guitar, Michael Campbell. I also wanna especially thank Mr. Tom Petty. And ahh, my singing partners of course the Queens of Rhythm. (....) (before Like A Rolling Stone)

I wanna say goodnight now. It's way past my bedtime. I wanna sing a song about my hero. I know everybody's got their own special hero. Some people’s hero is money. Some people’s hero is success. Some people’s hero is, hmmm Michael Jackson. Some people’s hero is Rudolph Valentino. And of course some people’s hero is Bruce Springsteen. Anyway, I don't care nothing about those people they don't mean nothing to me. I wanna sing you about my hero. (before In The Garden)

BobTalk

How are you? Sometimes it's hard to find people who understand me. (before Trust Yourself)

Thank you. I wrote this song about seven years ago I think, in my so called folk song, protest period. Anyway, I still play this. It seems to hold up really well though, ha-ha. (plays Masters Of War) Thank you. I wanna introduce you now to one of America's last great rock ‘n’ roll bands and surely one of my favorites. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Thank you! Well, I just read another concert review the other day. It said “Bob’s sounding like a parody of himself. He sounds just exactly like he’s imitating himself”. I should like to know who I’m supposed to sound like, you know. I know it’s hard when so many people sound like me these days. But someday, somebody got to tell these people that I’m still here. Well, I can’t sound like anybody else. I don’t know how to. If I did, I would. (before It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding))

Tom and I are gonna do a song for you right now. We used to hear these songs all the time when we were growing up. You can't hear them anymore. Very seldom you hear real songs anymore. Well, we were lucky to grow up, when you could hear them all the time. All you had to do was switch on the radio and you could hear them. (before I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know)

Thank you, all right. Here's a song I wrote a while back about one of America's greatest forgotten men. This man was just a little bit before his time. He said some things which got him into trouble with the wrong people. But there’s a lot of people right now saying a lot of things much worse than he ever could have dreamed of. And of course they're making millions of dollars and they've got nice houses and drive fast cars. And they got lots of pretty women. He didn't have none of that stuff at all. (before Lenny Bruce)

All right, everybody must get stoned. I meant that song as it could be taken a couple of different ways. That's one of them, but here's one that can be taken but just one way. (before Seeing The Real You At Last)

Thank you. It's called Borderline. For all you rock critics who are out there. Don't forget that rock critics did it all the time. (after Across The Borderline)

Thank you. I wanna, I wanna thank Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for backing me up tonight. On the keyboards, give him a warm hand, Benmont Tench. All right, on the drums, Stan Lynch. Playing the bass and the mandolin, Howie Epstein. All right on lead guitar, Mike Campbell. I especially wanna thank Tom Petty. And of course my sweet singing partners over on the left. (before Like A Rolling Stone)

All right. Yeah, we gonna get out of here now. Yeah. We got to go. It's way past my bedtime, I don't know about you. Anyway we always sing this last song here. It's about my hero. Everybody’s got a hero. Some people got a hero, lots of different heroes. Money is a hero, success is a hero. To lots of people Michael Jackson's a hero. Bruce Springsteen, John Wayne, everybody's got a hero. Shut up you! Well, I wanna sing about my hero, I don't care about those heroes. I have my own hero. (before In The Garden)

BobTalk

Thank you. Good evening. You were good last night. I hope the place is full. This is a song I wrote a while back in my protest period. I'm still into that period actually. I been making a lot of detours. (before Masters Of War)

I can't do that. I don't know what key to do that in. I'd like to do it later. If I knew what key I was in. I can play it but I can't sing it. It's too late. (after interrupting Dark Eyes)

Thank you. I wrote this next song about one of America's most forgotten artists. A man made before his time. Once in a while you meet somebody just like him. Anyway this is a man who had to fight to survive, and the same things he did <recording breaks> (before Lenny Bruce)

Thank you. Lonesome Town. I did that of course for the very great Ricky Nelson. I hope I did that OK? I ain't gonna say nothing about this song. I'm sure you all know what it's all about. But I tell you this. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)

Here’s a song about my hero. Everybody’s got their own hero. I don't know who your hero is. Maybe Mel Gibson. Alright! Let’s hear it for Mel Gibson. Maybe ? your hero will be.. Michael Jackson. Bruce Springsteen. Oh.. Anyway. Now I don’t care nothing about none of those people. I got my own hero. I’m gonna sing it..  about my hero now.  (before In The Garden).

BobTalk

Thank you! This is a song I wrote a while back, during my protest period. I’m still in that period! I know you are too. Anyway, actually I wrote this about 50 years ago, it still holds up, so I’m gonna sing it for you now. It’s called Masters Of War.

Thank you. I wanna introduce to you right now to one of the masters ..., top rock ‘n’ roll band, certainly one of my favorites, Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers. (after Masters Of War).

All right, Tom Petty’s coming back up here now. We’re gonna sing an old song, the kind of song you could hear on the radio so much. You don’t hear this kind of song no more. It’s too bad, really. (before I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know).

Thank you! Right down a lonesome town <inaudible> Too much to remember. I wrote this song a while back after a press conference that I was doing in London. I had 650 people asking me questions. I didn’t want to answer any and I didn’t answer any. I guess I wrote this about .... anybody out there know any people that judge you all the time? I know about a bunch too. People love to judge everybody. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man).

Thank you! I wanna thank Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers for backing me up tonight. On keyboards, give him a hand, Benmont Tench. On the bass, Howie Epstein. All right, on the drums, Stan Lynch. Playing lead guitar, Mike Campbell. I especially want to thank Mr. Tom Petty himself. Tom’s gonna jump right down into the middle of you all in a minute. And of course my singing partners over on the left. Give them a hand too! (before Like A Rolling Stone).

All right, thank you. We’re gonna get out of here now. <inaudible> I shouldn’t had get up today. Anyway here’s a song about my hero. Everybody’s got their special heroes. <inaudible> Maybe Mel Gibson is your special hero. <inaudible> Bruce Springsteen’s a hero. I don’t care about any of those people. I got my own hero.

Thank you. That was a recent hit of mine. Ha-ha. I'll play you an old time song I wrote about fifty years ago, during my protest period. I'm still in that period. I suppose everybody else is too. I know some of you are. Anyway this one I wrote a while back. It still holds up, so I still sing it. It's called Masters Of War.

Thank you. I happened to be here before, so I know a lot of people know me, but right now I want to introduce you to one of America's last great Rock and Roll bands, certainly my favorite. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. (after Masters Of War)

All right. I’ll sing an old song for you that used to be on the radio one time. You don’t hear songs like that on the radio anymore, that's for sure. (before I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know)

This is a song I wrote a while back about a man who died before his time. Did a lot of things that a lot of people weren't too pleased with. And when they gave him a real rough time for doing it, and he <inadible> in a kind of a strange way, they just did away with it. But that was about twenty years ago. Now today people are doing just the same things he did only they're not doing it as good, but they’re making a lot of money doing it, they’re living in nice big houses, and they’re being very successful at it. So, sometimes you know you got to be incredibly, incredibly ????. I wrote this song a while back specially for him. (before Lenny Bruce)

I was over in England one time doing a press conference. And that was the first time I ever gave a press conference where I didn't want to answer any of the questions. I didn't answer any of 'em. From that point on I stopped answering questions. People wanna know just all about your personal life you know, where I came from anyway. That’s very impolite. Anyway I wrote this thing here. Try to have my say again, I don’t know if it ever reached anybody who's supposed to reached, actually got hurt, but it made me feel better to write it. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)

Thank you. Domo, domo, domo. Anyway, everybody must get stoned. You know that can be taken a couple of different ways. Quite a few of my songs can be taken quite a bunch of different ways really. At least two or three. Well, here's one, actually the first for me, that’s can’t be taken but one way. (before Seeing The Real You At Last)

I wanna thank Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for backing me up tonight. On the keyboards, give him a warm hand, Benmont Tench. On the drums, please, Mr. Stan Lynch. On the bass guitar, Howie Epstein. Playing lead guitar tonight, Michael Campbell. And I especially want to thank Mr. Tom Petty himself. [starts song] Oh, and my girl singers there, sorry about that, I sing, they go every place with me. You got to clap for them too. (before Like A Rolling Stone)

Thank you. All right. Gotta get out of here now. Got to hit the road. Ha-ha. Don’t know where we gonna go but ... it’s past my bedtime. All right, anyway I wanna sing a song about my hero. Everybody’s got their own special hero, where I come from we got, <calls from the audience> ... excuse me? ... anyway, all kinds of heroes where I come from, John Wayne, Clark Gable, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen. Anyway I don't care nothing about none of those people, I got my own hero. I wanna sing about my hero now. (before In The Garden)

Thank you. Domo domo. That was a recent hit of mine. Here's an old hit. This was during my protest period. I'm still in that period. Anyway, I wrote this about thirty years ago. It still holds up so I still do it. Called Masters Of War.

Domo, domo, domo. “It's all right Ma, it's life and life only”. That's what I used to say to my Ma all the time. She'd say “I know it is Bob”. We're gonna sing you an old song. Used to play this on the radio when we were growing up we used to hear songs like this on the radio all the time. You don't hear this kind of stuff too much anymore. It's kind of tragic actually. (before I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know)

Thank you. Here's a song I wrote a while back, seems just like yesterday. Anyway I guess I wrote this one after doing what they call those press conferences. I did one in London, England one time and I didn't really want to answer no questions, so I didn't. Sometimes you got to do that. Anyway I wanna sing this song for you now, just like I wrote it then, just like I sing it now. The same thing, yesterday, today and tomorrow. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)

Thank you. Domo, domo. Everybody must get stoned. Well, I don't know, that can be taken a couple of different ways. Lot's of my songs can. Here's one that can't be though. This one can be taken only one way. (before Seeing The Real You At Last)

I wanna thank Tom Petty band for backing me up tonight. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers! On the keyboards, Benmont Tench. On the drums, Stan Lynch. Playing bass tonight, Howie Epstein. On lead guitar, Michael Campbell. I especially wanna thank Mr. Tom Petty himself. (before Like A Rolling Stone)

Thank you. All right, we're gonna sing this last song here now. It's all about my hero. Everybody's got a hero. Where I come from there's a lot of heroes. There's sure plenty of 'em. John Wayne, Clark Gable, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, they're all heroes to some people. Anyway, I don't care nothing about those people. I have my own hero. I'm gonna sing about him right now. (before In The Garden)

Thank you. We're gonna try to play this song here. I remember ..., I think it was back in the fifties, the late fifties, this song was played on the radio a lot. And I know it meant a lot, a lot to us then. Never did understand the words to it, but I think it did become top, top record on the charts. And I used to hear it all the time. Never did forget it. Can't remember any of the words, but we're gonna play the melody anyway. (before Sukiyaki)
