This is not the way things were supposed to happen.
When I sat down with Petty in the outer room of the cozy but fully equipped recording studio at his home above Malibu beach, the idea was for him to reflect on the wildly successful 40th anniversary tour he and the Heartbreakers had wrapped less than 48 hours earlier at the end of three sold-out nights at the Hollywood Bowl.

It was a triumphant stand particularly rewarding to Petty, a Florida transplant who considered himself and his band mates California adoptees. He said as much from the stage each night, noting how the Heartbreakers, although composed entirely of musicians born or raised in and around Gainesville, Fla., had been born at the Village Studios in West Los Angeles.
"This year has been a wonderful year for us," he said now, sipping a cup of coffee he'd just poured at 4:30 in the afternoon and sinking into the plush sofa. Above his head hung a framed illustration of his departed friend and boyhood idol George Harrison, created by artist Shepard Fairey and presented to Petty by Harrison's son, musician Dhani Harrison. "This has been that big slap on the back we never got," he said, referring to the popular, critical and financial affirmation that wasn't always apparent throughout the group's hard-working history.

But he did not see it as the end. There was supposed to have been so much more to come. Should have, would have, could have come.
Petty was excited about producing a second album for the upstart L.A. rock band he's been championing the last couple of years, the Shelters.
"They've been on the road for a year, and we got together recently," he said. "They played me some of their new stuff, and I was just blown away."
He was looking forward to continuing his involvement with the Tom Petty radio channel for the SiriusXM satellite radio service, including the show he organizes and hosts personally, "Tom Petty's Buried Treasure," in which he picks songs that he loves.
"I love doing my 'Buried Treasure' show," he said, ever the rock star in his military-style jacket, loose fitting pants and aviator shades, even while espousing fan-boy sentiments. "It keeps me listening like I used to do. I always listen. I could come home and I would spend the rest of the night just lying on the floor or the sofa listening to albums. It was like a movie to me. I still do really, and doing the radio show ensures that I'll be sitting there listening."

[EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ] ‘Independence Day
After six rewarding but also physical demanding months on (mostly) and off (hardly) the road, Petty was supposed to get a moment to take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the return to domestic life with Dana, his wife of 16 years, and the rest of their family, including his two adult daughters, Adria and Annakim Violette, from his first marriage; Dana's son, Dylan, from her previous marriage; and their 4-year-old granddaughter, Everly Petty.
Even though the notion of kicking back in a hammock sounds antithetical to everything he's ever believed in, or practiced, he said, "I just have to learn to rest a little bit, like everyone's telling me. I need to stop working for a period of time.
Still, he confessed, "It's hard for me ... If I don't have a project going, I don't feel like I'm connected to anything. I don't even think it's that healthy for me. I like to get out of bed and have a purpose."
Petty always had a purpose, and a man like that, a man with a purpose, should have had more time - weeks, months, years - to practice what he called fishing and others call songwriting.
"It's kind of a lonely work," he said, "because you just have to keep your pole in the water. I always l had a little routine of going into whatever room I was using at the time to write in, and just staying in there till I felt like I got a bite.
