Any Petty Fans? He worked with George In The Traveling Wilburys, but I really like his work in his Band, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. If You haven't Heard Mary Jane's Last Dance, Click on The Youtube Link Below. One of The Best Non Beatles Songs Ever

I love "Free Falling", "Last Dance with Mary Jane" and "Breakdown"(the live version from Pack up the Plantation). I haven't listened to too much of his work, but I'm trying to change that.

I enjoy his work very much. VH1 Classic has been airing one of his concerts from 1978 this month. I've seen it listed a few times, so if they play it again, it is worth watching.

I also think his work on the animated sitcom "King of the Hill" as the character "Lucky" is funny.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I was given Damn the Torpedoes (on 8-track tape!) as a birthday gift from my grandparents 30 years ago. I'm happy to own that one and his debut and a 2-disc anthology, but don't think I need to hear too much more - I got REALLY sick of all those big hits he had, back around the dawn of the 90s.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

How do you get sick of great music? I am loving his later day stuff, specifically Echo and Into The Great Wide Open.

Another Petty fan here! Great guy with a solid body of work. I'm a fan of the Heartbreaks as well as his solo work. Ifany oof you get a chance, watch his Soundstage performance. Absolutely amazing how diverse his catalogue is as well as how great the Heartbreakers are as a band.

I also recommend watching the Tom Petty and teh Heartbreakers documentary: Runnin' Down a Dream. Amazing doc about the band. One of the better documentaries about rock music I've seen.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I own Petty's debut on the recently released White vinyl limited edition version. I have one of 4500 copies!!! (Will sell it later in life.)

My Dad's a HUGE Petty fan, I'm no expert but I think he owns almost every album of his that's solo or with the Heartbreakers. It's a good thing, too, because that's why he bought the Traveling Wilburys CD and how I got into them in the first place...

Tom Petty is amazing, he's in my top ten of favorite artists.
