Tom Petty, RIP

Recommended Posts

Apparently, he's been pulled off life support but there are no solid reports of his dying. At least it's not yet officially confirmed. Of course it's a tough situation.

 

BTW- I thought this article on his tour that wrapped up last week give a little nice insight into Petty and his band:

Petty and the Heartbreakers were musicians I respected more than I enjoyed; that was probably largely a function of my (then young) age and tastes. Then I saw the band live. Man, they were solid. Really really solid. Sigh.

Caught the Bowl show on the 21st. So much love and talent evident that night. Hard to comprehend he's gone. Thanks for the great gifts you gave us Tom.
