It’s always nice to read about the love rock stars had for each other.

Tom Petty reportedly loved Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.

After the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994, the late Heartbreaker told the ‘Sydney Morning Herald,’ “I particularly loved his music. When one of his songs came on it just hit you – it was so good and there won’t be any more.”

“I didn’t know him,” Petty continued. “I’m just sorry it happened. He was really my favourite and it just sort, of leaves a big gap.”

In a separate interview, Petty said that Nirvana was “the most significant thing since The Beatles.”

Do you agree that Nirvana was as significant as The Beatles? Would you have loved to have heard a collaboration with Tom Petty and Nirvana?
