Some years back, after a very long day, I was sitting in my car and listening to the radio. Tom Petty’s, ‘Here Comes That Girl’, came on. ‘Here Comes That Girl’ was on his ‘Damn The Torpedoes Album’ which was released in 1979. It is one of my all time favorite albums.
I put my head back and closed my eyes. The song transported me back to my teenage years in upstate NY. I was driving my beat up ’72 Buick Skylark that I got for $300 bucks, to my girlfriends house. I was in her room. I could see the peaceful view out of her window; the beautiful fall colors. The smell of the cool, crisp fall air mixed in with her perfume. Her soft, small hand in mine. Then the song ended. I was smiling. “That was Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers with their 1979 smash hit, ‘Here Comes That Girl,’ said the dj. I stopped smiling. I started to feel so angry. The beautiful scene from the past was taken away from me. Tom Petty wrote that song for me. It was a part of my teenage years. It could transport me, through time, back to those years, back to 1979. [...]
‘The Plastic Demon of Decay of Humanity.’ They now commodified Tom Petty and put him in ‘their’ museum. They took a dreamer with a guitar from Gainsville, Florida and put his soul in a plastic box. How do you put Rock ‘n’ Roll in a plastic box? There was no more Tom Petty and even worse there was no more what Tom Petty meant to me. There was now only a ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Tom Petty.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame was founded in 1983 by: Jann Wenner, Jon Landau, Seymour Stein, Allen Grubman, Bob Krasnow, Susan Evans, and Ahmet Ertegun. All but Ertegun are Jews. I could not find out any information on Susan Evans.
Wagner did nothing wrong, or immoral with his exploration of what he saw the Jews doing to his country, his country that he loved very much. It is of course, the Jews who are immoral and a lot worse than that.
