The Wooden Sky "American Girl" (Tom Petty cover) (live video)

The Wooden Sky 'American Girl' (Tom Petty cover) (live video)
Toronto roots rock ensemble the Wooden Sky returned with Let's Be Ready last year, and the band are gearing up to take those songs back on the road for a string of North American tour dates. In honour of the tour's launch, the band have offered up a live video paying homage to Tom Petty's "American Girl."
It's a tune that's been in the band's live lineup for a while now, and the new clip captures on film their fresh take on the Petty classic. A statement from the band about the new video reads:
There's still some magic left in the innocence of rock and roll and this song embodies a lot of that spirit. It's an early Tom Petty classic and one we've been playing live off and on for a few years. We were in a little beach town filming our own songs at an old theatre when one of the camera men, who'd been with us since our early days, asked us if we would play "American Girl" for him. It had been a long day of filming but we fired up one take for old times sake. When we got the footage back it was clear that we'd captured something and thought maybe it was time we put our take on it out there into the world.
