Yeah. Well said.
I loved him when I was a kid. Just adored Tom Petty. Not so much the rocky stuff, but the George Harrison and Jeff Lynne-influenced ballads. And he even maintained a bit of an edge in the wake of alternative rock. I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but I used to listen to “You Don’t Know How it Feels” and “Last Dance with Mary Jane” right alongside Nirvana and Beck and stuff in the mid-‘90s. So did a lot of my friends who had similar taste.
Also, I listened to “Time to Move on” and it did indeed make me cry.
