Tom Petty RIP
« on: October 03, 2017, 12:51 PM »
 I wasn't a Tom Petty fanatic, but liked his music enough not to turn it off when it came on the radio, but his loss is nonetheless sad.

 And, I hate to say it  - again, it was cardiac arrest that got him. Guys - all of us, take care of yourselves.

Huge fan, very saddened by his loss. I wonder what Mike Campbell and the rest of the band will do now that they’ve lost Tom.
I caught on to the Heartbreakers by their 2nd Album and have been a fan ever since.
I’ve seen them in concert a few times as well.
I had to play the song Southern Accent a few times yesterday when I heard he was close to death.
I think the lyrics speak volumes about his love of the South and his Florida ‘drawl’ being part and parcel of him no matter where he was traveling and playing music.
My thoughts and prayers for his family and the band......
And yes Tom, health advise well taken with regards to Cardiac monitoring.... [scared]
Not as many Sanders as PA Floor guy.....

Today's Fresh Air (Terry Gross on NPR) re-played her 2006 interview with Tom Petty. You can hear it online anytime.

One of my top ten favorites- was very sorry to hear.  Was a fan since I heard Breakdown for the first time and think he was one of the best musician/songwriters we will ever see.  Thoughts and prayers to his family and the Heartbreakers.

Regards,
Gerald

I love Tom Pretty... For a handful of his mainstream songs, but mostly for his involvement in the Traveling Wilburys and a few of the songs in his more recent band 'Mudcrutch'..'Lover of the Bayou' is a frickin awesome song!
there's nothing like the right tool for the job

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
Well it's all right, doing the best you can
Well it's all right, as long as you lend a hand

Maybe somewhere down the road aways (end of the line)
You'll think of me, wonder where I am these days (end of the line)
Maybe somewhere…

....we hope harmonizing with Roy and George... RIP all good Wilbury brothers.

Too bad to lose another.  I liked a lot of his music. Almost went to see him this summer.  I had previously seen him in 1987 .

"Wildflowers" is pretty high on my list of favorite albums. I missed him when he came through town a few months ago. I told myself that I'd make sure to finally see him live the next time he was in the area. It's another lesson to never wait for "next time" to do something you want to do.

 Forgot about that one. Petty sounds just like George Harrison, Dhani looks just his dad and the musicianship is awesome by all on one of George's masterpieces. Sadly, George, Tom and Prince are all gone, each one from all too common killers, cancer, cardiac arrest and drugs, each dying well before their time, all are missed.

 I am not getting political, but wanted to add that besides the 3 musicians listed above having died too early as well as from an all too  common killer, I'll mention John Lennon getting shot from a disturbed lunatic. Way too familiar.

I watched this again this morning and just couldn’t help but smile seeing 6 guitarists on stage at the same time.  [cool]
