The Petty Archives first launched on February 22, 2011, by a dedicated young fan named Aimee.
Her search for any and all information related to Tom Petty was labor intensive and never ending, but that was just the beginning… She proceeded to type up every article, newspaper clipping, interview, and everything on the original website (pre 2013). Her hard work and dedication is inspiring, and without her, I would likely know nothing about Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
When she offered me the website in 2013 because she was too ill to operate it, I immediately said yes. I was famished with her website and still feel completely honored that she gave it to me. My name is Liberty and I plan on keeping this website updated and running for many years to come.
I do not simply operate this website because of my love and dedication to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, I do it out of a fondness and respect for Aimee and all of her hard work.
Without her, the contents of this website would be lost forever.
I became a fan of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in January of 2009 after watching the Peter Bogdanovitch documentary Runnin’ Down a Dream. I am twenty-one years old and am currently attending Indiana University obtaining a degree in English. I also have degrees in English Literature, Creative Writing, and Liberal Arts and Sciences. I have a deep love for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and have a collection of nearly 3,000 Tom Petty pictures. If anyone would like to download a copy of this collection, please contact me.
