Tom Petty: 10 Great Performances

From classic Heartbreakers gigs to duets with Stevie Nicks, Bob Dylan and Axl Rose

"Listen to Her Heart" (1978)

Following a tepid reception to their self-titled debut, when Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers embarked on a promotional blitz following the release of their second album, 1978's You're Gonna Get It!, in many ways their career was on the line. The sessions for the album had been far from ideal – "It was like this incredible apathy invaded the band," Petty said – but their live performances were tight and fierce. "Listen to Her Heart," the lone single from the album, was regularly trotted out during promo gigs including on the BBC's late-night rock show The Old Grey Whistle Test, for which Petty came armed with a pair of aviator shades and a Flying V electric guitar.
