Tom Petty: To Find a Friend


I was listening to the Wildflowers album by Tom Petty back in the 1990s when, of course, I first heard this song.

A random thought occurred to me: If The Beatles were still together, this is the kind of song they would be playing. I had no idea why I had that thought.

I glanced at the liner notes and looked over the personnel for the recording of this song.

Drums: Ringo Starr.

Huh.

I guess drummers do have their own recognizable style, which I heard without knowing. That is my only explanation for the random thought.
