** In September 2016, Petty told the ''Los Angeles Times'' that the Heartbreakers would probably disband if one of the members died or became too sick to play. That turned out to be [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/music/la-et-ms-tom-petty-the-final-interview-20171004-story.html the very last interview that he ever gave]], as he died just a few days later.
** Before the Heartbreakers embarked on their 40th anniversary tour, Petty [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/tom-petty-40th-anniversary-tour-might-be-last-big-one-w454754 said]] that it would probably be their last large scale tour. [[AuthorExistenceFailure It was]].

** AmericansHateTingle: And then, after that album, his career took a complete 180: He was now a star in America...but he would only have two more Top 40 hits in the UK. Even then, his highest peaking song there, "I Won't Back Down", only made it to #28.

* MisattributedSong: Petty sounded so much like [[Music/TheByrds Roger [=McGuinn=]]] on "American Girl" that when [=McGuinn=] first heard it he briefly thought it was a song he recorded but somehow forgot about. [=McGuinn=] eventually did a CoverVersion.

* MorePopularSpinoff: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers formed when three members of Mudcrutch (Petty, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench) regrouped shortly after they broke up in 1975. Petty instigated a Mudcrutch reunion three decades later.

* HarsherInHindsight: Having a band named the Heartbreakers, since Petty would die from a heart attack.

* HeartwarmingMoment: More like Crowning Music of Heartwarming: "Here Comes My Girl." He's frustrated with his life, frustrated and hedging on despair over life and the world in general.... "But when she puts her arms around me... I can somehow rise above it!" And he goes from a tired drawl to being deliriously happy.
