Tom Petty Takes A Stand

Michael Goldberg, Neumu, October 2002

FACED WITH the constant change and uncertainty that is life these days, it's a relief, on occasion, to be able to count on a band to come through, time and again, with well-written songs, a consistent sound and smartly produced albums. Such a band is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, who for over 25 years have been recording wonderful albums of '60s-style rock 'n' roll, indebted to the Byrds, the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones, among others.
