Yesterday Rock Daily brought you the trailer from Peter Bogdanovich's Tom Petty documentary Runnin' Down a Dream — today we've got an exclusive clip. Watch Petty sit down with an acoustic guitar to explain how he wrote "The Waiting" (the chords were stuck in his head for a week), and check out the song's evolution via live footage, plus commentary from Eddie Vedder. "The girls I was going after when I was a kid, they just loved Tom Petty. Everything was Tom Petty, Tom Petty, Tom Petty," the Pearl Jam frontman says.
