Tom Petty died of cardiac arrest yesterday - a few weeks shy of his 67th birthday (October 20). Petty was way too young to go. I've written about Tom Petty numerous times on this blog - "Live Anthology," "Mojo," and "Running Down a Dream" to name just a few. I was a huge fan of his music with the Heartbreakers, with the Traveling Wilburys, and his solo stuff. It's hard to overstate how much his sound was a part of my 70's and 80's world (as can be said of millions of similar souls of my age).
Here is his obituary from the NY Times.
Will be listening to a lot of his music today, and in the coming week. We will miss Tom Petty!
