I think that’s the thing–who DIDN’T like Tom Petty? Nobody who smoked that much weed could be all bad.
Are we sure he is dead?
My news reports say “No,” fortunately, but he is definitely unwell.
Here is what Rolling Stone is saying nowish:
so, conflicting reports about whether they pulled him off life support or not.
Yeah, the news is confused, and none of it good.
A few hours ago they reported that he had been taken off life support after it was determined there was no brain activity. I’m guessing the Tweets from LAPD saying the information was “inadvertent” means they weren’t supposed to release confirmation yet, but it leaked.
I guess it depends on how you define “dead”. From what I can gather, he has not been declared dead but he is not expected to survive into the night. No brain function. Sad news.
I always liked Mary Jane’s Last Dance. I hope Kim Basinger steals Tom’s body from the morgue and treats it to a nice dinner date.
For fuck’s sake can we get this day over with, WTF!
CURRENT STATUS: Standing at the Gates of Hell, not backing down.
Good travels, Tom.
I don’t know how to feel
This hasn’t been my day
Seems like I’ve lost a wheel
You took my breath away
Tom Petty, Unplugged
I liked what Tom Petty I’ve heard, but I have a hardcore fan cousin who has got to be seriously bumming about this now.
I’m taking year. This entire year. Nazis and everything.
Sometimes “classic” rock artists newer material never gets much play, but this song hooked me when it came out. Thanks for the tunes Mr. P.
Man, I’d forgotten about the “You Got Lucky” video – I remember thinking that was the most awesome video ever. I’m pretty sure that, at 13, I was right. I’m also pretty sure that, at 47, I’m still right.
Thanks Tom for all you gave us, solo and with other great musicians.
