Default Mr Tom Petty

I actually have no idea why I'm making this. I just haven't seen anything about this fella and was wondering what everyone thought of him and his band the Heartbreakers.

I personally like him, I find he has a great voice and a cool cool rock band.

tom petty and the heartbreakers. i wouldnt list them as one of my favorites, but i have the greatest hits album and there's a good bunch of songs i love on there. "something's in the air" has been a favorite song of mine since i heard it on the osiris skate video in 2003

One of my top-five favorite bands, actually.

The Running Down A Dream doc is spellbinding.

Wildflowers is a good solid album.

I Won't Back Down is one of my theme songs.

He has done some great tracks-REFUGEE, MARY JANE'S LAST DANCE, BREAKDOWN ETC. Good solid rock tunes. I can't say I listen to him a great deal though.

I think he is the guy who makes the songs that you randomly hear on the radio and have to crank it really loud and sing along with all your friends.....saying that I have most of his cds I hardly put them on but there on my play lists
