Tom Petty now has a park named after him in his hometown of Gainesville, Florida.
In a ceremony this weekend attended by members of Petty’s family, Gainesville’s Northeast Park was renamed Tom Petty Park. Watch part of that ceremony below:
Petty’s song “Gainsville” can be found on his posthumously-released An American Treasure boxset, out now. US-based readers can now pick up copy of Uncut’s November 2018 issue – with David Bowie on the cover – which features a comprehensive overview of the anthology, and Petty’s career as whole, with contributions from Heartbreakers bandmates Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench.
The December 2018 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – with Bob Dylan on the cover. The issue also comes with a unique 12-track Bob Dylan CD, The Best Of The Bootleg Series, featuring an exclusive track from Dylan’s latest boxset. Elsewhere in the issue you’ll find exclusive features on the Small Faces, Jeff Tweedy, the Psychedelic Furs, Moses Sumney, Sister Sledge, Jeff Goldblum, Marianne Fathfull, Ty Segall, Roger Daltrey, Klaus Voormann and many more.
