Tom Petty says he never wants to record another record without The Heartbreakers.
Tom Petty never wants to make another album without his band.
The 63-year-old musician recorded a solo record 'Highway Companion' in 2006 but with the release of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' latest album 'Hypnotic Eye' he can't see himself ever wanting to work without the group again.
He told The Sun newspaper: ''I don't see that I have anything to offer as a solo artist that I couldn't do within the group better.
''We get along so well it's embarrassing really. It's a love fest!''
However, that doesn't mean they don't have some disagreements.
Original bassist Ron Blair, is back after a 20-year hiatus between 1982 and 2002 and Petty explained: ''Even now, a friendly argument will start about something that happened in, say, '72. 'Remember when there was only one cheesecake in room service, I ordered it and you took it off the tray before it got to my room. That p****d me off!'''
While Tom is happy with their new record, he admitted he could never hope to emulate the legendary performers of the past.
He explained: ''None of us can compete with Bob Dylan even now you know. He's far above us all.
''Music was so good when I was young. At 10, I was obsessed with becoming a record fan.''
''I came to befriend some old records, Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis and all that good Fifties rock 'n' roll. I learned all that stuff so by the time The Beatles came along, it was like, 'Wow! This is my music, the music of my generation.'''
