LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tom Petty got his band the Heartbreakers back together for a high-class gig to launch Grammy weekend.

Foo Fighters, Don Henley, Norah Jones, Gary Clark Jr., Jackson Browne, the Head and the Heart, and George Strait were among those honoring the 66-year-old singer-songwriter as MusiCares Person of the Year on Friday night.

Petty was toasted for his musical achievements and philanthropic work two days before the Grammy Awards.

It was quite the star-studded rehearsal for the Heartbreakers' 40th anniversary tour that begins April 20 in Oklahoma City.
