RIP

And just when we thought the day couldn’t get any crappier.

Another great one gone.


#4

Damn. Damn. Damn.


#5

An enormous loss. Wow, that REALLY sucks.


#6

A heart can only take so much


#7

Bummer. He was a great musician and song writer and cartoon voice actor.


#8

AARRRRRRRGGHHHHGHGHGHH!” I write (because BB is grammar-checking me).


#9

I’m just done with today. Possibly with this week, too.


#10

We are all diminished by his loss. Rest in peace.


#11

I had the pleasure of seeing him perform in June. It was an amazing concert. This is a bad, bad Monday.

Can’t even process…

In December, Petty told Rolling Stone that he thought this would be the group’s last tour together. He said, “It’s very likely we’ll keep playing, but will we take on 50 shows in one tour? I don’t think so. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was thinking this might be the last big one. We’re all on the backside of our sixties. I have a granddaughter now I’d like to see as much as I can. I don’t want to spend my life on the road. This tour will take me away for four months. With a little kid, that’s a lot of time.”


#13

Aw, man. My lame band played a couple Tom Petty covers, badly, back when I was a teen. He’ll be missed.


#14

Damn.

RIP


#15

Damn.

Thanks for sharing your music with us.


#16

And of course!


#17

Say it ain’t so.
I’m gonna crumple this week up and throw it in the crap drawer.

Man I need to look up that guy on Netflix who had a stand up special. Older guy with Netflix.

Anyway - as part of his bit on Trump and his supporters, he said something like, “Yeah, well I know he voted for him, but come on man, there has to be some common ground. Hey, I bet he likes Petty.”

“Well yeah, of course he likes Petty.”
