Tom Petty, arguably one of the greatest singer/songwriters in rock history was born 72 years ago today. Although we lost him five years ago this month, his work for most of us looms large in our lives: If there isn’t a Tom Petty song — or three — in your life’s soundtrack, there’s something very wrong with you in my opinion.
Today, I’ll most likely play my copies of Full Moon Fever and Damn The Torpedoes in his honor.
Happy birthday, Tom! Happy birthday, wherever you are!
