The best scam I ever pulled was scoring a pair of free tickets to see Tom Petty.  I gave the tickets to my mom for her birthday, and she took me to the show, and there we were, in an arena full of people, people who knew every word and sang along to every song.  I've never seen anything like it.

His music was the soundtrack to a hundred road-trips, a thousand summer nights, a million campfires.  "You Don't Know How it Feels" was one of the first songs I ever taught myself how to play on my upside-down guitar.  "Wildflowers" is one of my desert-island albums.  

I'm crushed.
