Was at a braai last night and asked my mate Kyle to throw out some suggestions for the Friday morning music post and without hesitating he said Tom Petty.
I cannot believe i havn’t featured Tom Petty before.
The man is a legend and his place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is rightfully deserved. He was the frontman for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, but also formed the Traveling Wilburys along with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne. Some serious musical talent there.
Tom Petty is still performing to sold out crowds today at the age of 61 and i watched a few of his videos and it was tough deciding which song to feature, but i went with a classic… so put up the volume and listen to some real music.
Here’s Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performing Free Fallin live in Reno in 1991.
Sorry what was that Justin Bieber..i can’t hear you over how awesome that sh*t is.
You know how there’s that trend #realbeer …well i think music like this should from now on be labelled #realmusic.
