Tom Petty vs. Foo Fighters

Submitted by Adam F

Check out Foo Fighters‘ 2009 single “Wheels” and then listen to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ 1991 “Learning to Fly”. According to Wikipedia  before the formation of Foo Fighters  “Grohl received offers to work with various artists; he almost accepted a permanent position as drummer in Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.” So I would say he’s definitely a fan.

    Seriously the same…
    I’m sure, if I heard the Foo Fighters ”WHeels” while driving my car, I’d be automatically start singing ”Learning to fly”, especially since it’s one of my all time favorite from Tom Petty.

    Don’t know if they sound alike, but the song ‘Dear Rosemary’ reminds me a lot of ‘Steady as she goes’ by The Raconteurs. I don’t know, is the guitar strumming and the drum pattern that sound similar to me, but check it out and see for yourself 🙂
