Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers new album Hypnotic Eye arrived everywhere this week. We've been playing new tracks on BLM. Tommy and I are really diggin' it. Our favorite tracks from this truly rockin' record so far are: Forgotten Man, Red River, Burnt Out Town, and Sins of My Youth. Tom Petty is as honest and genuine as ever and we are lucky to have him. Click here to see what Rolling Stone has to say. See him live at the Civic Center here in Portland on August 31!

Here he is in a recent interview talking about the importance of true artistry in music rather than listening to someone who "won a game show".
