R.I.P. Tom Petty

Just heard the sad news that Tom Petty has died. We only saw 1 of his hits chart in SA, ‘Stop Dragging My Heart Around’,  which he and his band, The Heartbreakers recorded with Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Stevie Nicks. The song entered the charts on 4 September 1981 and spent 12 weeks in the top 20 peaking at 4.

On other charts in SA, he made number 4 with ‘Jammin’ Me’ on the Radio 5 charts, made number 9 on the Capital 604 charts with ‘You Got Lucky’ and managed to get to 12 with ‘Free Fallin’ and 10 with ‘I Won’t Back Down’ on the 702 Talk Radio charts.

R.I.P. Tom.
