Tom Petty’s drummer Steve Ferrone chose to tour with Italian star Eros Ramazzotti in 1996, giving Curt the chance to work with Petty. In a strange twist of fate, 10 years later Curt toured extensively with Ramazzotti himself! Again, this album was produced by Rick Rubin.
Curt Bisquera says:
“I worked with Tom Petty on this, a soundtrack album, while simultaneously working on Johnny Cash’s album, Cash, and also on Go Cat Go from Carl Perkins.
“’96 was busy for me, and to work with these three legends was a real thrill [...] Following the recording, we did various live dates and TV appearances, giving me a chance to be a Heartbreaker for a while.”
“Playing with that band was some of the most enjoyable live performing I’ve done... just such great songs.”
