This sucks.

"Tom Petty died on Monday, one day after he was found in cardiac arrest at his home, CBS News confirmed."

LAPD clarifies it cannot confirm Tom Petty's death

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/lapd-clari ... tty-death/

Damn news agencies need to shut up until they know the facts instead of spewing whatever they feel like posting without having the truth, not what they suppose is going on or has happened.

Great advice. I can think of several people here who should need that. :shock:

I was conflicted about posting before as there was much confusion if he had died.
I'm sorry and I am sad to know he passed away. I love much of his music, I love the whole vibe of it. Personally, Learning To Fly will always be a stand out song and my favorite song by him. It got me through life, still does.
Thank you sir.
Your music has been a mainstay for years.
Goodbye sir. :(
RIP sir.

I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

Apparently after Roy Orbison died, George Harrison phoned Tom Petty and said in his sardonic way "Aren't you glad it's not you!"
All three gone now. Gotta love Tom Petty, and the Traveling Wilburies were ace too.

RIP.

Gutted. He was someone my best friend really got me into as he was one of his absolute favs and to me I associated our friendship with him (and Queen). His Wildflowers album was note perfect and I found a lot to love among some of his lesser received work - we both loved She's The One and Echo...and we also loved the old stuff too but for me I'll be overhear with Wildflowers and She's The One on repeat....

I was introduced to Tom Petty by my best friend Rob, who is the biggest Petty fan I know. At first, I didn't get Tom Petty. But it didn't take me long to become a big fan myself. Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers were a perfect combination of Bob Dylan style lyrics and the rock 'n' music of The Rolling Stones or The Kinks. I saw Tom Petty about ten years ago live and you could tell that this was a man that was not doing it for the money but for the love of rock 'n' roll. Petty lived and breathed rock 'n' roll. I read a review of his most recent album that said something along the lines of saying that a Tom Petty album is good is like saying that air or water is good. I can't disagree. Even his worst material has something to it. That intangible essence that few artists have. I love his music and he will be missed... Tom Petty 1950-2017
