Remembering Tom Petty On The World Cafe

Listen back to an interview and performance from the late rocker, plus a conversation about his influences.
The music world was stunned today by the death of Tom Petty, the voice and pen behind some of the most memorable, unifying songs in rock 'n' roll history. Today we remember his time on the World Cafe with two sessions from our archives. You can listen to a Cafe session and interview with Mudcrutch, the five-piece band that got Petty and friends on the road to rock 'n' roll in the early '70s, who then reunited for a second LP and tour in 2016.
