Tom Petty, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who died Monday, made numerous stops in the Twin Cities with the Heartbreakers over the course of his lengthy career.
That included a stop at Xcel Energy Center just this past June, as well as a stop backing Minnesota native Bob Dylan at the Metrodome in 1986.
In March of 1983, though, Petty and the Heartbreakers were well into a tour supporting their 1982 album "Long After Dark." That record contained the hit "You Got Lucky," the video for which was a staple in the early years of MTV.
In advance of a stop at the Met Center in Bloomington, Petty sat down with KSTP's Good Company and gave his thoughts on what rock and roll music should be.
He also allowed KSTP a peek at he and the Heartbreakers rehearsing.
"The best rock and roll is going to be a little threatening," Petty said. "If it's not threatening, it's not rock and roll ... really."
