Monday’s Cover: Breakdown performed by Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters: Breakdown (originally by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)

With the big announcement last week that Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are headed out on a massive tour in 2017, it is only fitting we kick off the week with another monster act covering one of their hits.  Over the 40 years together they have strung together a laundry list of hits that have been incredibly influential on countless other musicians.  I can honestly say that in my personal concert going experiences there is no artist that gets covered more than Tom Petty.  Here is a take on one of the more sleek and slinky hits, done up by a band who was so influenced by Tom Petty that they are reuniting from their almost 2 year hiatus to perform at an awards show honoring Tom Petty as MusiCares Person of the Year.
