Stevie Nicks praises Tom Petty in tribute

Stevie Nicks was among the long list of performers to praise singer-songwriter Tom Petty for his enduring contributions to rock music in the March 25th issue of Billboard, which pays tribute to Petty and the 30th anniversary of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ self-titled debut album in 1976.

In the special feature, Nicks candidly reveals how Petty’s music helped pull her through hard times, including her 1994 stint through rehab. The feature also notes that Petty’s highest charting single was “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” his classic duet with Stevie Nicks, which reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1981.
