We flew down to Toronto to see him in concert in July of last year. My partner is a big fan so she arranged the whole thing. I had always appreciated him, but was never a huge fan. I honestly didn’t expect much going into the concert, but I was absolutely blown away by his show. I’ve seen several different high energy concerts, from Springsteen to Kiss. Petty rivaled them all. His energy was different than Springsteen or Kiss, but there was a definite energy that I hadn’t anticipated. His catalogue of songs is amazing. I was surprised that I knew all but one of his songs and was lamenting that he hadn’t played several others that I like. If you had asked me before the show I probably would have said that I could only name five of his songs. I knew a lot more than I realized. Anyway, I listen to him all the time now. Great music and great lyrics. I would have loved to have seen him again.
