Guys, it's a decent doc. It just doesn't have nearly enough depth, substance, or, hell, even information to warrant five fucking hours.

I feel like I didn't get to know him or his music at all. It's all surface.

the Petty book is a nice compliment to the film if you want more depth.

I didn't go much deeper than greatest hits and wildflowers until recently, so I enjoyed getting the surface story. But this seems like the pj20 of Tom Petty, complete with uncomfortable topic omissions.

For example, they never actually say what killed Howie.

I loved how blunt Frey was about Felder in that.

The Eagles still suck, tho.

"American Girl" is one of my favorite songs of all time. Has been since I was a kid too.

This is pretty common knowledge though. At least for anyone who is going to watch a 4 hour tom petty doc.
