tom petty and the heartbreakers

Recommended Posts

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are responsible for such infectious songs as "American Girl," and "Don't Do Me Like That," "Free Fallin" and some of the most critically acclaimed albums of all time such as, "Damn the Torpedoes," and "Full Moon Fever." Throughout the years, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have continued earning critical praise and fan adoration for their trademark brand of straight-ahead, American rock 'n' roll and their refusal to compromise their integrity. Along the way, they have become recognized as one of America's greatest rock bands and were inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, their first year of eligibility.

Any diehard Petty fan will agree that the musical chemistry between Petty and the Heartbreakers is more tangible than that of any other band he has played with (including the Traveling Wilburys, who also featured Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, and George Harrison.

I like them, but I am really glad that they didn't get Dave Grohl. After Cobain died, Petty begged Grohl to join the Heartbreakers. Grohl toured with them for a bit, then declined the offer. He then went on to the Foo Figheters, which I think was a better choice.

free fallin' is not from a heartbreakers album--full moon fever was a solo project with jeff lynne (though heartbreakers contributed individually to various songs) full moon fever featured the wilburys in fact

Any diehard Petty fan will agree that the musical chemistry between Petty and the Heartbreakers is more tangible than that of any other band he has played with (including the Traveling Wilburys, who also featured Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, and George Harrison.

any die hard petty fan knows that the relationship between petty and the heartbreakers has been tenuous and volatile, members have come and gone (often explosively), and their best work together ended in 1981

full moon fever ushered in a new "music for fun" era (rather than music as contractual obligation) where members freely did other projects, and the later projects (including the wilburys and the petty solo project wildflowers) were a lot better than the stuff made between 1981 and 1989 (and recently for that matter)

True, but I always associate everything with Tom Petty's voice.

So if you want to get technical, i'll just say I like the SONG "Free Fallin".

Thanx for the b.g. on Petty, Nate. I always assumed Full Moon Fever was also a Heartbreakers project. Petty reminds me alot of The Byrds, a band who he sometimes does covers of their songs

I really like Tom Petty, and hopefuly I'm not the only one that notices he really sounds like Bob Dylan sometimes.

I like Traveling Wilburys more though, and I think they deserve their own thread

Free Fallin' is included on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Greatest Hits, so it looks like they didnt think it important enough to be petty about... :bigsmile:

I too am a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers fan. I have seen them in concert twice, they put a great show.

I too think Tom sometimes sounds like Bob Dylan....

"Wildflowers" is a good cd. My favorite song is "It's Good To Be King".

For what it's worth, one of my favorite Petty tunes is [I]"Night Watchman"[/i], those mentioned are all good though. :D
I always thought he sounded like Roger McGuinn from the Byrds.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
