Connecting Tom Petty and Galileo Galilei

Tom Petty
The ensuing tour led to the live album '' Pack Up the Plantation: Live!'' and an invitation from Bob Dylan—Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers joined him on his True Confessions Tour.
In 1988, Petty, along with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne, was a founding member of the Traveling Wilburys.

Bob Dylan
The songs often took as their subject matter contemporary stories, with "Only a Pawn in Their Game" addressing the murder of civil rights worker Medgar Evers; and the Brechtian "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" the death of black hotel barmaid Hattie Carroll, at the hands of young white socialite William Zantzinger.

The album also included a cover of "Asshole", a song by Beck.

Beck's maternal grandmother was Jewish, while his maternal grandfather, artist Al Hansen, was of Norwegian descent and was a pioneer in the avant-gardeFluxus movement.

This act became the foundation of one of his most recognized performance pieces, the ''Yoko Ono Piano Drop.'' Many artists have also destroyed or altered pianos including John Cage, Joseph Beuys, Nam June Paik and Raphael Montañez Ortiz.

Joseph Beuys
He read Joyce, impressed by the "Irish-mythological elements" in his works, the German romanticsNovalis and Friedrich Schiller, and studied Galileo and Leonardo, whom he admired as examples of artists and scientists who are conscious of their position in society and who work accordingly. Early shows include participation in the Kleve Artists Association annual exhibition in Kleve's Villa Koekkoek, where Beuys showed aquarelles and sketches, a solo show at the home of Hans<sup>(German) and Franz Joseph van der Grinten(German) in Kranenburg as well as a show in the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal.

Tom Petty
His interest in rock and roll music began at age ten when he met Elvis Presley.

Sullivan, despite his June pronouncement, booked Presley for three appearances for an unprecedented $50,000. The first, on September 9, 1956, was seen by approximately 60 million viewers—a record 82.6 percent of the television audience. Actor Charles Laughton hosted the show, filling in while Sullivan was recovering from a car accident. Presley appeared in two segments that night from CBS Television City in Los Angeles.

He also continued to act occasionally on stage, including a US production of ''The Life of Galileo'' by (and with) Bertolt Brecht.

Life of Galileo
The action of the play follows the career of the great Italiannatural philosopherGalileo Galilei and the Galileo affair, in which he was tried by the Roman Catholic Church for the promulgation of his scientific discoveries.

Tom Petty
In 1996, Petty, with the Heartbreakers, released a soundtrack to the movie '' She's the One'', starring Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston (see ''Songs and Music from "She's the One"'').

Cameron Diaz
The film received overwhelmingly negative reviews, and performed poorly at the box office, grossing only US$10{{nbsp}}million internationally. Diaz also voiced Sigmund Freud in '' A Liar's Autobiography'' (2012), a British animated comedy film that is a (deliberately) completely inaccurate portrayal of the life of Monty Python alumnus Graham Chapman.

Sigmund Freud Austrian neurologist and founder of psychoanalysis (1856-1939)
Ricœur and Jürgen Habermas have helped create a "hermeneutic version of Freud", one which "claimed him as the most significant progenitor of the shift from an objectifying, empiricist understanding of the human realm to one stressing subjectivity and interpretation." Louis Althusser drew on Freud's concept of overdetermination for his reinterpretation of Marx's '' Capital''.

Louis Althusser French Marxist philosopher (1918–1990)
Althusser holds that Marx has discovered a "continent of knowledge", History, analogous to the contributions of Thales to mathematics or Galileo to physics, in that the structure of his theory is unlike anything posited by his predecessors.
