Thank You Tom Petty

1One of my favorite topics to discus with friends is who is the greatest American rock n roll band of all time?  I love the topic because there is never one consensus answer.  You get bands from every generation brought up and good arguments made for all of them.  Beach Boys, Aerosmith, Guns and Roses, The Eagles, Foo Fighters and so on.  My answer every time though is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

You will hear so many talk about why Petty was special to them and I won’t bore you with mine but do yourself a solid and listen to the Tom Petty SirusXM station and just listen to the stories all the other musicians are telling about the man and musician.

If you have a hard time agreeing with my thought that Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is the greatest American band just go and watch the documentary, Runnin’ Down a Dream and you just might see it my way.

Here is a clip from that movie that is one of my favorites.
