An offering of praise for the late great master. Hey beautiful people,
I tend to be pretty quiet about celebrity deaths… but I’ve got some words about this one. 

I was raised on Tom Petty. Trapped in the car on long family road trips, his music made me feel colors. His songs felt like peepholes into a great wild world I knew I would one day be exploring myself… and he gave some good pointers. Every time I hear those records, no matter where I am or what’s going on, I feel as though I’m in the company of a dear old friend.

More than just being obviously one of the greatest songwriters ever, Petty was a rebel with a cause who took several bold and very public stands for what he believed in, resisting record label executives who wanted to use him as a pawn in their game. If you haven’t seen “Runnin’ Down a Dream,” the epic Heartbreakers documentary directed by Peter Bogdanovich, I highly recommend it!

To honor the life and death of this super rad being, on the night of his passing, I recorded a live video of my cover of his song “You Got Lucky.” Best Wishes Johanna Warren.
