There are hundreds of would-be Sinatras and Bowies roaming the UK and earning a very good living but tribute acts playing the music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are a little thin on the ground.

Petty died one year ago at the relatively young age of 66 but his music will live on for future generations.
