Petty insists he's not retiring
The Victoria Advocate - January 5, 2007
Rocker Tom Petty says he's not retiring, despite a Rolling Stone article in July that suggested otherwise. And, he added, 2006 was one of the most rewarding years in his career. Petty and his band, the Heartbreakers, recently earned two Grammy nominations for their latest album, "Highway Companion." Their 30th anniversary tour was a sellout and included a triumphant homecoming to Gainesville, Fla., where the band formed in the 1970s.
