As we continue our week honoring Tom Petty and his band, the Heartbreakers, we get some help from some well-known guests we’ve had on the show! Listen as Matthew Sweet and Chuck Prophet  join in to voice their thoughts on Petty and his influence on them as musicians.

FUN FACT: Tom Petty made 12.5% in royalties off of singer Sam Smith’s 2014 song “Stay with Me” after it was discovered that it sounded similar to Petty’s 1989 hit “I Won’t Back Down.”
