What do you like about this subject?

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' music is my passion.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Everything new that comes up!

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

While vacationing in Mexico Tom missed having his guitar and one was delivered to him w/help from locals. He finished writing songs for The Last DJ on that vacation! Tom played ALL of the drum parts in the Mojo album. Most of Tom's music is written with piano first.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

He may not consider himself an artist, but I've seen a few sketches Tom has done, and indeed he has talents in addition to his songwriting, playing and singing skills.
