Generally with my taste in music I should not like Tom Petty but I do (a lot). I thinks it's because to me Petty's simple riffs strike a powerful groove. I like Seager too but there's something different about Petty's music.

Both bands are truly excellent. I've decided to go with Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet here because their recordings have in general a somewhat harder bluesier edge to them. That plus the fact that Seger needs my vote more.

Bob Seeger ,,,just because.
His first track (when I was just 17) 'Ramblin Gamblin Man' blew me away. And most of his early things up through Against The Wind are excellent. And his voice is pure rock and roll imho.
Petty is a very good song writer but I always felt that his voice was weak(nasal) and he copied the Byrds and that jangly guitar style a bit too much imho on many of his hits. ... But through Long After Dark I liked his lp's , after that I lost interest.
