Avraham Rosenblum with Non Jewish Rock Stars in 1986

In 1986, Tom Petty, Ben Tench (of The Heartbreakers), and Roger McGuinn (The Byrds), on tour with Bob Dylan, met up with Israeli-American musician Avraham Rosenblum, leader of the band "Diaspora," in Jerusalem. The segment was part of "Rock Israel," from MTV's Musical Passport series, which followed Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers through some sightseeing in Egypt and 2 shows in Israel.

"Non-Jewish Rock Stars?" At the time, two members of The Heartbreakers were Jews. Imagine a sign on 47th Street saying "We also sell to non-Jews."
