Tom Petty Thrilled Song Was Showcased At Democratic National Convention
The singer/songwriter's 1989 track was blasted as U.S. President Barack Obama stepped onstage at the Charlotte, North Carolina event, and Petty is pleased to have been involved.
He tells RollingStone.com, "I've been on the wrong side where I've had to tell some candidates to stop using my music. They (organisers) knew it would be OK.
"I've had a chance to meet the President and talk to him about the music he listens to."
Petty admits he'll never forget the moment Obama appeared as the song played, adding, "I got chills."
