I'm still in shock and disbelief about Tom Petty's death this week.  I think a lot of people feel the same.  We'll always have his great music to remember him by and my own fond memories of seeing him in concert.

My first gig in radio was a rock station in York, Pennsylvania on top of a mountain. This is the place where I played some great rock-n-roll music: Foreigner, Led Zepplin, Aerosmith, Def Leppard, and some great tunes from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Here's some of my favorite Tom Petty songs:

  • Breakdown
  • American Girl
  • I Need to Know
  • Refugee
  • Stop Draggin' My Heart Around  (with Stevie Nicks)
  • Don't Come Around Here No More
  • Mary Jane's Last Dance
  • Southern Accents
  • Free Fallin'

I'm glad that I had a chance to see him at Hersheypark Arena.  He inspired many and will be sadly missed. Here's some great Tom Petty videos:  [watch]
