Throwback Friday to 2013, when I was on tour to promote “A Moment Vanishing” with @danielchristianmusic . Unfortunately, the building where this stage resided was demolished today.

This is a very special find ... Perhaps it was fate that brought me to this particular record store (or perhaps it’s just a right place/right time scenario), but despite what the label says, this vinyl actually contains a bootleg of a 1978 concert by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in New York City. The store owner didn’t know what this was, so I picked up this (VG+) gem for a very (very) low price. It will forever be cherished and treasured in my collection ... - November 6, 2017 #safeandsound #vinylcollection

I took this photo at 9:45 pm when it was 71 degrees outside.  A note to landlords: If your tenant tells you that the air conditioning is out, don't forget to fix it the next morning (when your tenant was out of town) like you promised.
