A couple weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend the last concert Tom would ever play on this earth. I thank my dad for introducing Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers into our lives and I always wish we had the chance to see him in concert together. However, it feels pretty cool that I got to see his last concert on this side, and dad got to see his first one on the other side. Rock on forever, Tom & Tom
This album cover is part of one of my earliest memories. My dad was a huge Tom Petty fan - I grew up on it. On my way out of the record store yesterday I spotted it in a place it did not belong, and casually added it to my collection without realizing today was Father's Day. I'm gonna enjoy this listen... RIP dad.
