Tom Petty

Look at the release dates of all those amazing singles. Every single time against the grain of popular culture. He somehow propelled traditional rock into forward-thinking music for adults that was at once readily accessible and deeply meaningful. It was familiar and at the same time totally new. It was comforting and challenging. It was unassuming and irrepressible, just like the man who made it.

Love you, Tom.

I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There’s something good waitin’ down this road
I’m pickin’ up whatever’s mine
