Tom Petty...

...owns you. We all should learn a few things from him.

Even though he is from Gatorsville-er, Gainesville, Florida, he is one of my favorite artists.

His best early album is probably 'Damn the Torpedos'. He was becoming a stronger album artist by then. His 'Greatest Hits' and 'Anthology' albums do justice to his early work too, they get the essential songs. Petty was more a of songsmith than an album artist in the early days so you get the best of his work from those.

His SHE'S THE ONE soundtrack is one of his most under-rated albums.

It's nice to see a tom petty thread here. Along with U2, he and the Heartbreakers are my favorite bands. His work hasnt gotten the biggest press of late, but I still find his songs to be highly enjoyable. Certainly check out Damn the Torpedoes or Full Moon Fever..but Echo is also a great album.

Yes! That was a good one, the one that made me a fan. Get all of them, but do get Full Moon Fever. It's good from start to finish with no songs I want to skip and that is a rare thing for me. Of course get his anthololgy.

Tom is a great guy. He is the only rock star who seems like a friend to me. I like Bono more, but I am intimidated by him, where Tom is like a buddy you could just pick up in your car and go, come on Tom, let's go for a ride. I don't know how to explain it, he's just a down home all around easy going good guy, like a regular person. I like him and his music.

I was actually looking for my Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers "Greatest Hits" album yesterday, but it's back home.

Tom Petty is outstanding!

Well, quite frankly, I have a little beef with Tom Petty. See, in Free Falling, he makes this big deal in the beginning about how wonderful this girl is. Then he dumps her! No reason! Why?? Then he's happy about it! "And I'm a bad boy cause I don't even miss her..."

AGGHH! What a mean guy! Really, I mean, c'mon....
