Farewell Tom Petty

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers 40th Anniversary Tour - Nashville, Tennessee

We lost another great rocker with the passing of Tom Petty.

A singer/songwriter who was a hit before MTV came along. Back when your sound was all that mattered.

I didn’t necessarily love his music or hate it. It just seemed like a Tom Petty song was never far away, back when all we had was FM radio.

I began to take interest in his music after he teamed up with Stevie Nicks on “Stop Draggin My Heart Around”

Hmm. “Refugee”. “The Waiting”. Not bad. And later, “You Wreck Me”. “Last Dance With Mary Jane” and “The Last DJ” all found me singing along while I was cruising around with the windows down.

And in 1988 he teamed up with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne (of ELO) and George Harrison to form the Traveling Wilburys who put out some great music.

Rest well Mr. Petty. Sorry I never got to see your show in person. I heard that you were awesome live.
