RIP Tom Petty

Taken off life support after being found unresponsive in his home. October isn’t shaping up to be a good month.

That sucks. I'm a huge fan. Famous, but always seemed like a regular guy.

Just saw this!

RIP Mr Petty- loved your music.

Did you know he shot one of his videos (You Don't Know How It Feels") without a break or retake? Wanted to emulate Boris Karloff...

RIP...enjoyed your music.

I just watched a documentary about him last week, gave me a better appreciation of his music even though I've always enjoyed it.

So many memorable tracks that it would be hard to name a favorite. RIP Tom, I hope you hook up with Warren Zevon for a monster jam session up there.
