Rock 101 Thursday, August 7 2014

How it's possible that Tom Petty and crew have never had a #1 record is beyond me...BUT that ends here!!

It took nearly 37 years but Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have scored their first Number 1 album on the Billboard 200!!

Hypnotic Eye sold 131,000 copies last week, AND that gives Petty and the boys their strongest debut sales week in over 20 years!

The band did manage to hit the charts when they released their self-titled album in '77, featuring tunes like "American Girl" and "Breakdown."

While 37 years seems like one hell of a long time to wait to earn that #1 spot, it's not the longest an artist has waited!
    Tony Bennett holds that title after he waited 54 years.
