“Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. There’s not some trick involved with it. It’s pure and it’s real. It moves, it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things.”
Best known as the iconic front man for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Petty masterfully straddled the line of classic rock and new wave music. Rooted in rock tradition, Petty and his band were never afraid to try new things, experiment with sound, and build a body of work that is simultaneously timeless and fresh.
