I know they are two older musicians bt they are two of my favorites..... I always have a hard time answering the wuestion of which one I prefer to listen to because they both have so many good songs that could never get old... what do you think?

I like Tom Petty more than Steve Miller since, for me, I'm more familiar with Tom Petty music because I think it's more approachable than Steve Miller's work.

I gotta go with Tom Petty hands down. Songs like "Runnin down a dream" "American Girl" and "Free Fallin." I mean come on it's no contest really. Steve Miller's okay but he doesn't have anywhere near the cataloug that Tom Petty does. Just one guy's opinon. :)

thanks for your input. those are all ver good songs by Tom Petty, but what about songs like Jungle Love, Blinded by The Light and Keep On rockin' Me by Steve Miller, perhaps equally good?

Absolutely Tom Petty. I like Steve Miller but if I had to chose only one for the rest of my life I'd have to go with Tom Petty.
