Uncle Barky's Countdown to Christmas -- Episode 6

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have yet to record a Christmas album and likely never will.

But they came out in force back in 2000 to perform the Petty-written “Christmas All Over Again” on TNT’s A Very Special Christmas. Originating from Washington, D.C., the 90-minute special was billed as a celebration of Special Olympics, with B.B. King, Jon Bon Jovi, Wyclef Jean and Macy Gray also among the participants while President Clinton beamed from the audience during the waning days of his second term.

Petty seems to be having a good time, and few Christmas songs have rocked harder over the years. You’ll be glad you took a look and had a listen.
