My pal from high school, Rebekah, or Bekah as most people call her, has seen it all, regarding me and my creative endeavors. And she was there at the beginning when the ‘Birds first came along. I scribbled lots of little drawings for her in notebooks we passed back and forth in school, and on letters we sent all through college.
We’ve been Tom Petty fans together through all the ins and outs and ups and downs, losses of band members and additions of new ones, good albums,sad songs, you name it. So if there’s anyone else on the planet who knows the ‘Birds really well, it’s her. Happy Birthday, dear friend, from our Little Red Rooster and Big Shy Bird(Who I also switched back to his original beak and foot coloring).
Here’s Bekah and me on a trip to Panama City Beach with her family. I have just gotten Chuck Rooster airbrushed on a shirt, which I am wearing!
