Petty - The Biography by Warren Zanes

Tom Petty: I'll tell you another band that really astounded me—and when I first saw them I hadn't even heard their stuff. I didn't know anything about them. We were playing a club outside Chicago, in Schaumburg, Illinois, and we were going down pretty well at this point. But that night we just didn't get much of a response. The place was packed, we were playing good, but we just weren't getting much back. So I'm talking with this guy afterwards, saying how weird this seemed. And he says, "This is Cheap Trick's audience, man.' I said, 'Cheap Trick'? 'Wait until you see this,' he tells me. They hit the stage, and it was fuçking mind-bending. Robin Zander was one of the most powerful lead singers I'd seen, sang like one of the Beatles. The sheer energy of the thing on the stage was so great. I thought, 'This band is going to be enormous.'


What more could a band want then that compliment, thanks again Tom
