Tom Petty is Obsessed
Jim Sullivan, Bangor Daily News, 14 August 1978
TOM PETTY HAS an obsession with rock 'n' roll. It's not just a glamorous occupation; it's virtually the only life the 26-year-old leader of the heartbreakers has known. He started playing in Florida when he was 15 and moved to California five years ago with the attitude, "If I'm going to starve, there's no reason to go somewhere cold."
