Tom Petty Gives His Final Interview

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers completed a five-month, 40th anniversary tour at the Hollywood Bowl. About 48 hours afterwards, Petty granted an interview with writer Randy Lewis from the Los Angeles Times. The sit-down happened at Petty's home and studio in Malibu, California...the same place where he suffered a cardiac arrest.

Petty talked about him and his band: "“This year has been a wonderful year for us. This has been that big slap on the back we never got, ” he said, referring to the popular, critical and financial affirmation that wasn’t always apparent throughout the group’s hard-working history.

It was an extensive interview.
