Lots of conflicting info out there.

I respect what he accomplished. I just never liked his voice.

And then him and Dylan got together.. and neither could sing. :smiley_confused1:

I've never been a huge concert guy.  My dad was, and said he's a top 5er.  Saw him for the last time (he thought) at the Palace about a decade ago and said he still had it.

A cook I worked with at a summer job said he worked a Tom Petty concert once, doing the food prep for the suites.  He said they got a special order to deliver back stage after the concert was over just for huge trays of crackers, cheese and cold cuts.  Went and delivered it back stage, and it was Tom's room.  Opened the door, and he said the second hand high he got was strong.  Just dropped off the trays and turned around, one of Petty's crew handed each of them two $100 bills on their way back out.

Gainesville guy.  Never seemed to be considered with the very top musicians, but when you stop and think about it, you know as many of his songs as you do anyone else.  Wrote songs you could sing along with the very first time you heard them.

I’d definitely put Petty in my all time greatest list. Dude has TONS of songs I don’t just like but downright love. Sad to hear he’s gone.
I thought I settled my debts that night on the ride home
But I have still got hell to pay

He's on my "Greatest Hits" list with bands like Queen where his 15 track "Best of" can match up with anyone, but aside from Damn the Torpedoes (which is awesome) I don't think he has an album I listen to start to finish.
