I was never a huge Tom Petty fan or anything, but I enjoyed almost all of his music. He and his various bandmates provided a steady stream of quality pop/rock songs. It is a bummer.
According to his daughter that was prematurely reported.
He will die, maybe has by now...but this highlights the hurt that today's rush to be the first to post a story can cause. The press has always hungered for a scoop, to be sure, but with instant Tweets and other social media postings, erroneous information all too often spreads like wildfire.
Really liked him! 66 years old. Total bummer.
Still no update on Hugh Hefner's status
So.. way back my friends and I built a half pipe for skateboarding in the hills in California. That was actually the ramp in the original video for "Free Falling". He had an amazing song list though one will always be my favorite. You will be missed Tom and someday I'll be right there with you running down a dream:
R.I.P., Tom Petty.
