Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were one of my first favorite bands. By "favorite' I mean a band that I followed all through their career, saw multiple times in concert, bought their stuff and more. For some reason, whether the current trend was rock, new wave or even metal, there always seemed to be room for Tom Petty. Now, when grunge got big, I wasn't the biggest Nirvana fan, instead I gravitated towards Pearl Jam. Tom Petty has got a big grumpy in his old age, and Pearl Jam's output tends to be spotted, but live both bands, and both band leaders are undeniable. Check out some bad-ass jams after the jump.
