Winnipeg Free Press - Friday, November 16, 1984

In the following interviews, pop stars recall their first musical memory.

Tom Petty, 32, (Don't Do Me Like That, Here Comes My Girl, Refugee):
"I remember being very young, maybe three, and listening to my parents play Rock Around the Clock. I remember it because it had that rhythm: 'One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock, rock.'"
