CULVER CITY, CA - JUNE 11: Musician Bob Dylan Performs onstage during the 37th AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Michael Douglas at Sony Pictures on June 11, 2009 in Culver City, California.

A number of Tom Petty tributes have surfaced in the past few weeks, but this one might be one of the biggest.

During a show on Saturday night (October 21), Bob Dylan honored his late friend by covering “Learning To Fly.” Petty and Dylan, of course, were famously members of The Traveling Wilburys along with George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne.

In a statement to Rolling Stone, Dylan said of Petty, “I thought the world of Tom. He was a great performer, full of the light, a friend, and I’ll never forget him.”
