Petty cash
The Buffalo News - July 7, 2002

Hail, hail, rock 'n' roll.

Wednesday night, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers proved that rock 'n' roll is alive and well and living in America.

Opening with a fiery version of "Runnin' Down a Dream," Petty and band drove a capacity crowd, which ranged in age from 16 to 60, to an absolute frenzy.

What can we say? Mike Campbell, Mike Campbell, Mike Campbell. The guitarist for the Heartbreakers offered a mini-course in rock 'n' roll history. A night of celebratory genius.
