Tom Petty: 5 Years After His Passing

October 2, 2022, marks the fifth anniversary of Tom Petty’s passing. His music spanned about 50 years. He performed as a member of two different bands and had a solo career. He had many hits, including Free Falling.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

In 1976, Tom Petty started his music career as a member of the band Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. The group has famous singles, including American Girl and Breakdown. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ music was bold and impressive- their songs are dynamic and timeless. Petty was the lead singer and did a great job. 

Traveling Wilburys

In 1988, Tom Petty formed a band with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne called Traveling Wilburys. The four men sang together in harmony. The group had a mix of distinctive musical and vocal styles – a blend of great talents. Their music was fantastic and rich. 

Solo Career

Tom Petty’s solo career was just as incredible as his days in different bands. He could sing remarkably in both times, as a solo singer and as a band member. He had an impressive ability to adjust to different musical styles. My favourite song of the late artist is Free Falling.

Rest in Peace, Tom Petty.
