Kings Road

Hello my fine friends! I spent a lot of time in my formative early 20s on the Kings Road in Chelsea/Fulham so this was a fun episode to record. I hope you’ll forgive a little overindulgance on my part in giving you some personal background. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of deep diving into the song!

If you want to listen to the track before we dig in, check out the official video:

I talked about the live version from 1982 US Festival and you can find that version here:

A last very special thanks to Paul Zollo. Without his book, Conversations with Tom Petty, this podcast wouldn’t be nearly as much fun to research.
