University of Florida to honor Tom Petty

Before his music career kicked into gear, Tom Petty spent some time working as a groundskeeper on the University of Florida campus in his hometown of Gainesville. The institution's board of trustees this week voted unanimously to honor Petty with a PhD in music. Timing of when the posthumous doctoral degree will be conferred and who will be accepting it on behalf of the late Rock great who died four years ago of an accidental overdose just a week after his final concert hasn't been announced yet.
