Bruce Springsteen is the latest voice in a chorus of mourners sharing their grief after Tom Petty passed away of cardiac arrest at the age of 66 on Monday (Oct. 2).

The singer-songwriter and guitarist gained fame in the late 1970s with the Heartbreakers.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers just wrapped their 40th anniversary tour at the Hollywood Bowl last week. I'm pretty sure I nearly broke the stereo trying to play the CD upside down.

Heartland rock is characterised by a straightforward musical style, and the conviction that rock music has a larger, social goal beyond just entertainment.

With its lyrics about turning up the radio and driving down the highway, "Runnin" Down a Dream" is an ideal road trip song and also reflects Petty's thoughts about rock "n' roll. It would be the year of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

In that moment, there was no separation between the band and the audience.

The broke into the limelight In 1977 with the song "Breakdown".

"Tom has always acknowledged the Byrds in the early part of his career.He cut a couple of our songs, "Feel A Whole Lot Better" and "Rock and Roll Star" on a live album, and he really nailed 'em, just so much excitement".

There was no looking back after that.

This was during his period with The Traveling Wilburys, between 1988 and 1990, the fun-loving, British-American supergroup that not only included Petty (known as both "Charlie T. Wilbury" and "Muddy Wilbury"), but also Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Jeff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra.

Petty was born in Gainesville, Fla., on October 20, 1950. He beat me so bad that I was covered in raised welts, from my head to my toes. He encouraged it. "You can stand me up at the gates of hell / But I won't back down!".

"I'm mostly just a reefer guy", he says.

The couple's 22-year wedding was allegedly replete with mental illness, and drug use.

I'm gonna get Petty about last night.

We'll miss you, Mr. So I said, 'I'm going to go.

The couple filed for divorce in 1996.

"I used to be a little insecure about whether I could sing the blues authentically". My parents' marriage was hell.

In the biography, Petty spoke candidly to Zanes about the abuse he suffered as a child and his struggles with heroin addiction. He was married to Dana York since 2001 with whom he had two daughters and one stepson. In the early 2000s the Strokes took off thanks to an unabashed rip of "American Girl" they called "Last Nite".
