Prolific, melodic and deep: 5 Tom Petty songs to appreciate

  • Tom Petty Never Backed Down

"It's sort of the classic theme of a lot of the work I've done", he told The Associated Press in 1989. "He motivated thousands of guitarists to learn to play just because they wanted to be able to play "Free Fallin".' Count me as one of them". If you're a singer, you've got to be responsible, it's a physical thing, you have to be in shape. The release of his next album, Hard Promises, was delayed by a month by another dispute. Petty kept busy by also recording with the rock group Mudcrutch and the Traveling Wilburys, a folk-rock supergroup featuring Bob Dylan, George Harrison and others.

I was excused for being late that day because my algebra teacher's all time favorite artist was Tom Petty.

As for Young, his tribute begins by referencing Petty's final concert with his band The Heartbreakers, which took place on September 25 in Los Angeles.

As Petty said, he would not be "bought and sold like a piece of meat".

"I'm excited to get into the studio again. Great!' That was my whole life". All the while, his songbook seemed to move across the map like a vagrant weather system, fluctuating from heartland warmth to California cool to whatever dank vibes must have been hanging over Florida when Petty first marched his Heartbreakers out of Gainesville in 1976.

Legendary rocker Tom Petty has sadly passed away on Monday, at 66-years old.

A moment now to remember one of rock music's most-beloved musicians.

Petty formed The Heartbreakers in the mid-1970s, but it wasn't until the band's third album "Damn the Torpedoes" in 1979 that their music really took off, with hits such as "Refugee" and "Don't Do Me Like That".

The utterly surreal music video for "Don't Come Around Here No More", in which Petty plays Alice In Wonderland's Mad Hatter, is a flawless example of his sense of humour. In 2014, around the time he received an ASCAP Founders Award, he told The Associated Press that he thought of himself as "kind of a music historian". But many of us feel like we did because of a deep connection to the supreme music he produced throughout a 40-year period. Our idiot president is lobbing paper towels at survivors of a natural disaster and telling them they should be "very proud" they didn't die in a "real catastrophe."
