Tom Petty, Mike Cambell, Benchmont Tench, Ron Blair and Stan Lynch formed Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1976. Since then, the group has had a number of hits, with a lead singer whose voice reminds one of Dylan and a slide guitar worthy of any Southern blues band. Their hit songs include “Breakdown,” “American Girl,” “Refugee,” “Don’t Do Me Like That,” and "The Waiting."
