Highway Companion, Tom Petty's third solo album and first in a dozen years, is a timeless album about the passing of time. A cross-country arena tour from Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers runs June 9 through October. Last summer's tour was one of the most successful of their career. Even without supporting an album, the band played to more than 750,000 fans. A constant companion on the road of rock n' roll, Petty, says Rolling Stone, is "rock aristocracy".
