Thomas Earl "Tom" Petty (born October 20, 1950) was an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He was the frontman of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and a founding member of the late 1980s supergroup Traveling Wilburys and Mudcrutch. He also performed under the pseudonyms of Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr. and Muddy Wilbury. He recorded a number of hit singles with the Heartbreakers and as a solo artist, many of which remain heavily played on adult contemporary and classic rock radio. His music, notably his hits, has become popular among younger generations as he continues to host sold-out shows. Throughout his career, Petty and his collaborators have sold 80 million albums. Petty and the Heartbreakers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. Petty died of an accidental drug overdose on October 2, 2017, one week after the end of the Heartbreakers' 40th Anniversary Tour. He was 66.
