"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.

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.

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.
