On October 2nd, the music world lost a legend. Tom Petty was a Rock and Roll hero. Petty was a renaissance man. He was not only an incredible guitar player and singer, he was also a songwriter, producer, and actor. Throughout his career, he stood for many things like artistic control and freedom. Petty had a number of top-charting hits, solo and with his main project, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, including “Free Fallin'”, “Won’t Back Down”, “American Girl”, and “Last Dance For Mary Jane”. Tom Petty was a driving force in Rock and Roll, and it feels like a little piece of it has left with his passing. But we won’t back down.
Rest in peace, Tom Petty.
