Helsott – Tom Petty-Cover

Eric Dow comments:
“Tom Petty was and will forever be an American songwriting hero. He was one of my all-time favorites and I was lucky enough to see him live several times. We were working on Slaves and Gods when he passed away. I had just seen him at the Hollywood Bowl for what would become his final run of shows and I was very inspired. We decided very quickly that we were going to cover a song and put it on the new record. We chose „Runnin’ Down A Dream“ because we felt we related most with those lyrics and the song rocks! I felt like instead of acoustic guitar accompanying us we would ask Lethien from Elvenking to throw down some violin. He did a great job. In the spirit of the album and having so many guest musicians on it we had a local artist named Hunter Havokk, do the guitar and bass. We really liked the outcome so we decided to do a tribute video and release it on the anniversary of Tom Petty’s passing. Since Tom Petty made shit happen with little to no money we decided to approach this video in a very DIY manner. We had a GoPro and our friend Frank to film us. I did all the editing and I am no means a video guy. We were just 3 guys having fun in the spirit of Tom Petty. We wanted to do a storyline that was believable but still lucid enough to still be a dream. I could very easily see one of us having a dream where Cooper was playing a pink Jr. drum kit in the back of our trailer. Then our van breaks down and we do whatever we can to pass the time, but it’s okay because a Jedi will come and fix the van“
