A new installment of the long-running series of Tom Petty tribute shows known as Petty Fest is set to take place at San Franciscos Fillmore theater on February 27. Doobie Brothers frontman Tom Johnston, Boz Scaggs and ex-Guns N Roses drummer Matt Sorum are among the many musicians set to perform tunes from Pettys expansive catalog at the concert.
Scaggs was the revelation. The voice remains supple and rangy. A soulful reading of Muddy Waters Same Thing even gave him a chance to stretch out on guitar not something so easy with this band of virtuosic musicians.
