A fucking legend. Sirius Radio has a Tom Petty station. And it's about fucking time because they also have a Grateful Dead and Pearl Jam station. These bands are mediocre and not near legendary status.

RIP.

Buried Treasure. It's not his music though, it's his music picks. Like it though, never knew how schooled he was in the blues.

Sad day.  Rock legend.  Always used cool vintage gear too.

Charlie T. has gone to join Lefty and Nelson.  This sucks.  A superb guitarist and entertainer shot down by the years.  Only two left.

I listen to his station on SiriusXm along with The Beatles Channel, Classic Vinyl and several others.  Good stuff all 'round.

Interesting guy, really stood up for himself despite risking everything a few times to show that, not like most celeb who only talk a good game but can't back it up..

check this out about him....


"As a songwriter, he focused often on daily struggles and the will to overcome them, most memorably on "Refugee," "Even the Losers" and "I Won't Back Down."

"It's sort of the classic theme of a lot of the work I've done," he told The Associated Press in 1989. "I think faith is very important just to get through life. I think it's really important that you believe in yourself, first of all. It's a very hard to thing to come by. But when you get it, it's invaluable."

Petty didn't just sing about not backing down, he lived it. In 1979, he was enraged when his record label was sold and his contract transferred. Stating that he would not be "bought and sold like a piece of meat," he self-financed what became "Damn the Torpedoes" and declared bankruptcy rather than allowing his label, MCA, to release it. He eventually reached a new deal with MCA, for better terms. In the early 1980s, he was again at war with MCA, this time over the label's plans to charge extra money, a dollar higher than the standard $8.98, for his album "Hard Promises." He again prevailed."

Tom Petty's daughter summed it up pretty well.  Rolling Stone magazine is run by a bunch of poseurs.

Damn, I just saw this late last night.

  First it was Greg Allman, now Tom Petty. They were both great artists but Petty's music spoke to the entire generation of us early 80s kids.

You people who don't appreciate Tom's music just don't know how it feels.
