OBIT: Tom Petty
« on: October 02, 2017, 03:01:18 PM »
TMZ is reporting that Tom Petty suffered full cardiac arrest, and with no signs of brain activity after being rushed to UCLA hospital, a decision was made to pull life support.

RIP Tom. Thanks for writing so many songs that made up the soundtrack to my life.

Thatís a stunner. Leaves only two members of the Traveling Wilburys still around (Jeff Lynne and Bob Dylan).

He might not be dead yet.  Seen on Yahoo News that he is NEAR death, disputing CBS News Report.  Nevertheless, it doesn't look good.    :-(

This reminds me of the premature obituary published almost four years ago for country music singer Ray Price. People jumping the gun before an official confirmation.

That said, he's "Free" ... always think of that song ("Free Fallin'") when someone is free of their pains and illnesses in life and thus no longer suffering. RIP to a legend.

We lost a legend yesterday.  My favorite song of his is "Free Fallin".  RIP Tom Petty.

Petty was taken way too soon.  I will always remember his splendid Super Bowl halftime performance, and his contributions to the music world were excellent (with my favorite track being Won't Back Down.)

Rest in peace, Tom.  :(

My favorite as well. I also like "Don't Come Around Here No More", among others.
