The record, which found him being augmented by many of his Heartbreakers bandmates, was produced by Rick Rubin and included some of his most memorable songs. Released on Nov. Petty took a more organic and rootsy approach to production and instrumentation, and the album has become notable for being one of his best-sounding works. Stream of consciousness: words, music, chords.

Finished it. I mean, I just played it into a tape recorder and I played the whole song and I never played it again. I actually only spent three and a half minutes on that whole song. The song features drummer Steve Ferrone, who would soon become a Heartbreaker, carrying a relatively sparse and spacious production.

I'm not going to say it's good or bad. But I wrote this song a while back, and I was trying to do this character in the song who was kind of down and looking for some company. And instead of having him say, 'Let's have another beer' - they always have to have that in the song - I thought this guy should roll another joint. The lyrics, he said, still resonated with him.

But it worked out really nice. But during the writing process, it went through a very slight evolution that completely changed the vibe of the whole thing. It's an example of one little word changing the whole thing. Notably, the song was performed on Saturday Night Live after the album was released, with former Nirvana drummer and soon-to-be Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl on drums.

Grohl was hired for the one-off TV performance after Stan Lynch left the band, and before Petty invited Ferrone to join the Heartbreakers on the tour to promote the Wildflowers album. Rick Rubin's production allows for the drums and vocals to remain center and put the focus right where it should be.

One of the most interesting things about Wildflowers is the instrumentation, particularly the keyboard sounds employed by Benmont Tench.

The improvisational nature of the take found drummer Steve Ferrone spontaneously bringing in his signature rhythm in a way that made the whole thing click. Home News. Next: Top 10 Tom Petty Songs.

To Find A Friend

When he was 44 years old, Tom Petty released his second and greatest solo album. It is a crucial entry to his catalog, one whose songwriting is elegantly spare, personal, and intuitive. Petty was 44 when he released his second solo album in the autumn of He was headed toward a rough divorce from Jane Benyo, his wife of over two decades, with whom he had two daughters. At the same time, music was flowing from him like never before: song after song, constant waves of inspiration, words writing themselves. For two years, he practically lived in the studio. Legend has it, the hour-plus album was originally slated to be twice as long with an additional disc of material attached. For now, at least, we have Wildflowers. Its disparate modes—blues, country, folk, power-pop, torch songs—are connected by the roads, both literal and figurative, that led him to where he found himself: lonely, middle-aged, digging through his consciousness as one would ransack a room to find a small, lost object.
