On October second, one of the great American rock artists passed into the great beyond. Tom Petty was a wonderful musician, taking part in bands Mudcrutch and the supergroup Travelling Wilburys, as well as his own Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. His death is a tragedy tacked on to the many musicians of the ‘70s and ‘80s who have been lost over the past couple of years. The best way I can think to honor him is with my personal favorite playlist of his songs:

1. Learning to Fly
2. Free Fallin’
3. Runnin’ Down a Dream
4. American Girl
5. Night Driver
6. I Won’t Back Down
7. End of the Line (Travelling Wilburys)
8. Refugee
9. Breakdown
10. You Don’t Know How It Feels

Tom Petty was one of the first artists I ever listened to, and his music has certainly helped with why I decided to become a musician myself. I hope you all enjoy.
