Tom Petty Bio

Tom Petty

Over the course of his storied career, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Tom Petty has sold over 60 million albums, successfully managing to bridge the generational gap between parents and kids. Though he first found commercial success with 1978’s album You’re Gonna Get It! (with the help of the Heartbreakers), Tom Petty concerts are still packed today.  

In addition to gaining entry into the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Petty shares a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with the Heartbreakers, has received a Billboard Century Award for lifetime achievement, and owns a key to the city of Gainesville, Florida, where he grew up. Some of Petty’s biggest, most beloved hits include “Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” “American Girl,” “Free Fallin’,” and “I Won’t Back Down,” among others.

Tom Petty tickets sell out no matter where the talented singer/songwriter plays. After all, the performer is often mentioned in the same breath as legends like Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, and Bonnie Rait, to name a few.

Most people have a bucket list, which usually necessitates traveling to an exotic place, plunging into an adventure or perhaps trying something new for the first time. Well, you can have your skydiving adventures and your tourist traps, but photographing Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers was a definite bucket list moment for me. And I wasn’t alone. The Heartbreakers sold out six shows at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles in a matter of minutes, and on June 8th, I was fortunate to be present among their greatness, and in the photo pit. The band opened with The Byrds’ classic, “So You Wanna Be a Rock N Roll Star.” Like a fine wine, Petty’s voice has aged gracefully with time, yet still packs a punch. “Cabin Down Below” from Petty’s 1994 solo effort, Wildflowers, J.J. Cale’s “I’d Like to Love You, Baby” and one of my all-time favorite Traveling Wilburys tunes, “Tweeter and the Monkey Man,” were just a few of the audience pleasers from this special night; and the set list just accelerated. It was a smorgasbord of all things Petty. From a taste of Hard Promises, to a glass of Full Moon Fever, the boys kept the hungry crowd satiated. Yet as all good and wonderful things must end, it would take more than the Los Angeles Fire Marshal’s premature curtain call to squelch the smokin’ performance of Petty and company. I remember the first time I heard “Runnin’ Down a Dream” as a child. That’s it. Mike Campbell and Tom Petty are the REASON I still play guitar to this very day. There’s just something about the way Campbell shreds on the Doozy that makes my heart sing. As for the voice of The Heartbreakers, his music spans two generations: his lyrics are timeless, he played with a Beatle, harmonized with a falsetto, strummed with the orchestral rock god, and rocked with the first Rolling Stone. Petty’s whimsical twist on the simplest of words, always seems to make life make more sense. With Tom and the Heartbreakers, who needs a therapist?

I love Tom Petty. And the Heartbreakers. I can't say enough about how great a classic rock musician he is, how incredible his sound and lyrics are, and how cool of a person he seems like. I had the opportunity to see him for free at the Gibson, on tour with none other than ZZ Top. It was an amazing show. Not just the performances, but the whole grounds. Tents had video screens and listening parties all over the place for those of us whose tickets were for the lawn but wanted to get a closer look and listen. His banter and demeanor were totally chill, and since we got to sit in on his soundcheck, we got a little extra glimpse into his process. He's a seasoned veteran, after all, and everything went off without a hitch. He played all the hits -- Walls, Last Dance with Mary Jane -- which may have been what everyone expected of him, but made for a great time at such a large venue, interacting with tons of different levels of fandom. Oh, and his rapport with ZZ Top was entertaining, too. Old man tour stories floating around, etc.
