Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are an American rock band formed in Gainesville, Fla., in 1976 with the first line-up of the Heartbreakers being Tom Petty, an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist as their front man; Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench; Ron Blair; and Stan Lynch. Their first album, titled Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, was a minor success. Their second album, You're Gonna Get It!, hit the Top 40 and featured singles, "I Need to Know" and "Listen To Her Heart." #3, Damn the Torpedoes, quickly went platinum, selling nearly two million copies; it includes their breakthrough singles, "Don't Do Me Like That," "Here Comes My Girl" and "Refugee." Tom Petty has done many things apart from the Heartbreakers; he was a founding member of the Traveling Wilburys, along with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne. Petty has also acted on several TV shows, movies and has been the voice for characters on several shows like The Simpsons and King of the Hill.
In 1989, Petty released Full Moon Fever, his first solo album, which featured hits "I Won't Back Down," "Free Fallin'" and "Runnin' Down a Dream;" he was, however, backed up by several Heartbreakers and other well-known musicians including Campbell, Lynne, and fellow Wilburys, Roy Orbison and George Harrison. Throughout his career, Petty and his collaborators have sold 60 million albums. Petty and the Heartbreakers' successes have earned them a place in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame, a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame and several Grammy nominations. In 2005, Petty received the Billboard Century Award for his lifetime achievements. Petty's popularity continues to grow with every new generation of fans and his remarkable list of hit songs are celebrated by audiences everywhere.
