Tom Petty




Buddy joined the show at the start of 2018, taking on the full-time role of American pop/rock legend Tom Petty, who we sadly lost last year. Buddy has a very exciting career history and has spent a fair bit of time living and working in The U.S.A. He was been teaching music since 1991, both privately and in universities across the UK and America. He even taught at Berkeley in 1998.

Buddy’s talents have taken him all over the world inlcuding Spain, France, Portugal and Austria. He has toured quite extensively in The States with Brian White, Martina McBride, Lisa Stansfield, Antonio Fargas and Chesney Hawkes.

He made several appearances at The Grand Ole Opry with Brian White in 1997/98 and has worked on Broadway in hit production ‘Moving Out’. Buddy is also a trained sound engineer and has worked on many successful touring shows.

Buddy has been a great addition ot the show as he is very passionate about The Wilburys and what we are trying to achieve as a production. He still manages to fit in teaching around touring, as well as generally helping the show to progress. We don’t know how he does it. 

Apart from music Buddy has another passion his life - motorbikes! It isn’t unusual for our Tom Petty to rock up to a gig on a bike, looking far too cool for his own good!
