Absolutely stunned. Saw him twice at the Hollywood Bowl, and once with Mudcrutch. Fantastic song writer, musician, and performer.

Thankfully got to see him with Dylan. AC30s. Here's a video my sister took of him with Mudcrutch, 2016:

Great interview recently published by Reverb -- Tony Bacon interviews Tom Petty about the influence of 12-string guitars on his music; lots of Rickenbacker references:
