  • R.I.P. Tom Petty

    I was really hoping this was a Twitter hoax with all of the shenanigans going on today. This one stings. Saw him in May at Red Rocks. True rock n roll legend.

          A legendary musician - this one really really hurts.

          Rest in peace, Tom.

            Me too. He was my favorite musician of all time. This has been a really hard day.

              Evidently, he's still clinging to life as of 3:30 PST. The CBS report of his death was disputed by the LAPD...but they can confirm he was taken off life support, and remains in extremely grave condition.

                  Weird how this happened.

                  I'm leaving this thread open and see if I can find anything tomorrow.

                    His music vid for "Into the great wide open" is still one of my all time favorites.

                    See how many of the actors you recognize, Tom had star power very early in his career. Great loss

                        One of my favorites. So many fantastic songs. I remember when I was in my early 20's I would play the "Wildflowers" cd over and over ... loved that cd. Sad to see a legend pass on.

                          From what I on it, they found he had no brain activity so they pulled him off life support. They were expecting him to pass then so word was given prematurely about his death. But instead he kept breathing on his own for a period of time till he finally passed away and official word came. That's just from what I read.

                            I think that’s what happened. The official time of death is listed as 10/2 8:40 PM PDT.

                            Even in death…`ol Tom wouldn’t back down.
