Now more than ever…the message in this song are words of inspiration and hope.
First…a little history behind the song “I Won’t Back Down”. An arsonist burned down Tom Petty’s house while he was there with his family. Luckily they managed to escape but for the next few months, they lived in hotel rooms and rented homes. While Tom was physically okay it impacted him as his family.
From that he wrote the song “I Won’t Back Back”
With the current pandemic continuing (with no immediate end in sight)…the words in this song are powerful.
Check out the “raw” isolated vocals of Tom from the recording session.
