Rallying Cry

When I first got this CLL diagnosis two years ago, I picked out this Tom Petty song as a rallying cry; something to remind me of everything that was truly important to me on those coming days when it might not seem like the future was so bright. Right now, thanks to my clinical trial team at Sarah Cannon Research and Infinity Pharmaceuticals the future is looking pretty bright indeed but as a musician I still really wanted to do this and the song has taken on a very personal meaning. If you’ve seen my Fight Song page, you’ll understand. 😎

My good friend Chris generously supplied the guitar/drum track and we did the rest at home on some fairly inexpensive recording gear. Sheila and I are both singing and I played the bass guitar. It’s a bit country, it’s a lot Rock & Roll. No, we’re not pros by any stretch of the imagination but I was really pleased with how it came out.

Hey, I will stand my ground and I won’t back down!
