Pioneer of modern rock and roll
Tom Petty couldn't wait to finish growing up before he jumped headlong into music. Inspired by Elvis and the Beatles, Petty dropped out of high school to start Mudcrutch with Tom Leadon. Mudcrutch gained some traction in the local Gainesville scene, but without any mainstream success the band split up. In its place, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers was born. They quickly built up a mainstream audience, and their third album, Damn the Torpedoes, was the first to go platinum. Singles like "American Girl," "Breakdown," "I Need to Know," and "Into the Great Wide Open" showcased Tom Petty's masterful blend of roots, blues, heartland, and southern rock into a distinctly Petty sound. Tom Petty also played in the Traveling Wilburys with Bob Dylan and George Harrison and dabbled in a solo career, producing hits like "Free Fallin'" and "I Won't Back Down." In 2002 Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
