It’s Good To Be King, Happy Birthday Tom Petty!
“People come, people go
Some grow young, some grow cold
I woke up in between
A memory and a dream.” – You Don’t Know How It Feels, Tom Petty
He may not have actually grown up in an Indiana town, but that doesn’t mean Tom Petty doesn’t know how to sing about the American Heartland with pure, well, heart. The Gainesville, Florida, native turns 65 today and isn’t showing any signs of backing down from rocking any time soon. Petty knew he wanted to be a singer at a young age when he met Elvis Presley on a movie set. HE formed Tom Petty and Heartbreakers in the mid-‘70s and the band has continued to tour on and off together for almost 40 years. Today we salute you, Tom!
