Graham Nash, Dan Baird, Rich Robinson of Magpie Salute and The Black Crowes, Brett Dennen, and Crystal Bowersox join Eric in conversation to share memories and pay tribute to the life and work of Tom Petty. Hear Graham relay a story of Tom working on The Hollies road crew in 1966, Dan Baird’s appreciation of Tom’s uncanny ability to write a killer first line, Rich seeing Tom Petty for the first time with Rick Rubin, Brett’s reaction as a kid when his parents got the first Traveling Wilburys record, and Crystal’s exceptional parenting in turning her nine year old son onto Tom Petty’s music. Lots of funny stories, behind the scenes memories, praise, kind words, laughter and tears in homage to one of the world’s greatest, gone too soon. Part 1 of 2, maybe 3.
