This is the final part of our interview series with power pop icon Tommy Keene.

In addition, Tommy also discussed his biggest regrets as an artist.

FUN FACT: Tommy was a collaborator with Matthew Sweet (who we also interviewed a couple of months back). Matthew said of Tommy after his passing, “He was a true classic, and a wonderful friend. Long may the music and the man be remembered. His songs are playing in my heart now…”
