R.I.P. Tom Petty.  

You know him. The straight blonde hair, the piercing eyes, the joker-esque sneer.  Tom Petty was one of the U.S.'s most iconic songwriters.  He holds ranks with the greats: Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles....

I'm a few weeks late on this, I know, but I couldn't let another legendary musician who has had an impact on my own music pass without paying a tribute to him.  From the iconic black and white video with Petty in a vest, strumming his acoustic like a guitar-playing Robin Hood to the ethereal lush recording, "Learning to Fly" is probably one of my favorite songs of his.  For you with great taste for the classic writers, I hope you get a smile out of this.

 

 

Also, the song is downloadable and for free.
