Tom Petty dead at 66

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbIhnnIs6XA

This day just keeps getting sh*ttier. I'm beyond stunned to learn of his passing. I've been a life long fan of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for pretty much my entire life. I love the guy. A true rockstar and musician with a catalog of songs to swim in. I remember the first time I ever heard of Tom Petty....but I didn't know until 3 years later that it was him. I was in Elementary School...a kid brought a tape deck to school and he played this one song which was about the coolest thing I had ever heard before. I didn't know who it was or even what the name of the song was. I heard it just that one time....but it always stayed in my head. But the first time I discovered this guy Tom was when the video for You Got Lucky aired on MTV and that song just...thrilled me every time. I was hooked. And then I started looking at his back catalog and came across Damn the Torpedoes and that's when I finally found out who and what the name of that song was from 3 years earlier: Refugee.

RIP Mr. Petty. You have given me a lifetime of incredible music and songs that still mark the time for me. You will be missed....but never forgotten. Gonna crank up some Petty tunes today in your honor.

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers - Into The Great Wide Open

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqmFxgEGKH0


Whenever I see the video or hear the song Into The Great Wide Open, I always flash back to when I was hanging out in LA. I even played this song while I was on Sunset, especially when driving by Tower Records just to re-create the shot in the video.
