Tom Petty was an American singer and musician.


Tom Petty held a lyrics workshop at The Rolling Stones' Rock N' Roll Fantasy Camp. He was talking about how lyrics were the hardest part about songwriting, but Homer cut him off saying "BORING!" When Petty realized that everyone just wanted midless, generic rock, he started to play and sing a song.[1]

Tom Petty's picture was on a captcha screen for bebop jazz musicians on the Wayz website. It was one of the pictures that Lisa didn't click.[2]
