We are dedicating this entire week to Tom Petty and his band, the Heartbreakers. After his sudden passing last week, we felt that one episode regarding the man and his music didn’t do him justice. In today’s episode, Phil Ingrassia and Mike Snider open up a general discussion about Petty, and how they came to discover his music.
FUN FACT: Tom Petty was given guitar lessons from the former lead guitarist of the Eagles, Don Felder.
