Tom Petty had a show on XM Radio that I enjoyed. He played music from his personal record collection.
May he RIP.

As a musician, you (hopefully) learn to recognize true quality in a player and a group. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers was one of the absolute tightest bands ever. The simpler the music, the harder it is to stay in the groove. Free Fallin' is one of the simplest progressions ever, but crazy tight for the whole 4:16.

This one hit me hard. As weird as it may sound, I grew up listening to Tom Petty, and still to do this day hear one of his songs on a daily basis. I almost went and saw him last April, but I ended up having to have surgery. I wish I would have postponed the surgery just a few days in order to go.

Some of the best music I've ever heard.
