What may be the last recorded music by Tom Petty is featured on an album he produced for former Byrds bassist Chris Hillman.
Bidin' My Time was just released two Fridays ago. Petty plays harmonica on one song and guitar on another. Hillman made this statement to Billboard about Petty: "I loved Tom so much. He was such a blessing in my life. Tom touched everyone with his beautiful music. I am praying for his family, bandmates and friends."
In an earlier interview with the publication, Hillman credited Petty, along with his longtime musical partner Herb Pederson, with convincing him to record again when he didn't think he ever would. Despite the album's low budget, Hillman said making it "was a joy" and that he's "never had as much fun recording."
