Being a fan of Tom Petty I was naturally interested in this documentary. The thing that impressed me was how I lived all of this, listened, read, watched and yet didn't know so many details of the heights of success that Tom Petty and the band had reached. Even more interesting was the influences on him and that he has had on others in the industry. I've always been impressed with how the guy writes music that just keeps coming. In many ways like the Beatles albums, so many good songs, simple classic songs are on almost every album he works on with the heart-breakers, alone or in tandem with other artists. The adulation he receives from so many other stars like Stevie Nicks and George H. are just moving as to the dedication and talent he has. I just liked him before seeing this documentary, after I realize how ignorant I was of how good he truly is. Before I just liked so much of his music it was impressive, after I see that he has touched a lot more than me and just keeps on going. One of the few people I have seen on film where it seems like you could just walk up to him and shake his hand telling him how his music has touched your life and after all these years he would still truly appreciate the compliment and not just brush it off. Seems like a class guy and gotta love how he has effected the industry.
