Tom Petty, Dead at 66

Tom Petty

Tom Petty was 66. He was the singer-songwriter best known as the lead singer of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, but also known as a member and co-founder of the late 1980s supergroup the Traveling Wilburys.

There was a lot of Tom Petty talk in my recent podcast with Barry Davis who sings in a Tom Petty tribute band. You can hear that episode here.

Barry turned me onto the Petty documentary  Runnin' Down a Dream which I've since seen twice. It's excellent and streaming on Netflix right now. Petty was an immense talent.
