From their live DVD in 2003, here’s Do You Like It.
“This is an emergency crisis weâ€™re in. The entertainment media is affecting everything on the planet in a very negative way. Iâ€™m only interested in rock â€˜nâ€™ roll. Rock â€˜nâ€™ roll is a music that represents truth. Your TV channel has taken the word â€œrockâ€ and knocked the â€œrollâ€ off the end. You made rock this umbrella term for everything. Thatâ€™s wrong. Shakira isnâ€™t rock. These country artists with fur coats arenâ€™t rock – or country. I offered a video to VH1 of my band playing in the studio and they donâ€™t want to air it because it had musicians playing in it. They want some babe walking on the beach or whatever. I got turned onto this music by watching the Beatles and the Rolling Stones actually on TV playing their guitars. It completely took me over. When you canâ€™t see musicians playing any more, Iâ€™m not interested any more.” – Tom Petty To VH1
