                    AboutTom Petty

                    Thomas "Tom" Earl Petty (born October 20, 1950) is a popular American musician, known for his album-oriented, classic rock style of music. A prolific songwriter, he has also produced numerous hit singles, such as "American Girl", "The Waiting" "Free Fallin'", "I Won't Back Down" "Into the Great Wide Open" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance", most of which remain heavily played on mainstream radio. Despite this success, Petty is also a vocal critic of the modern recording industry and the disintegration of independent radio stations (e.g. The Last DJ).
