This is a hard and shocking death…But, I’m glad we finally have solid verification on Tom’s status.
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers put out a lot of music I loved…but, they also kind of faded into the background…so, I didn’t even know about the 2014 album they put out…I knew about the two Mudcrutch ones, though…I have them on a wish list.
How do you summarize a death like this?…He died to young…He was still putting out good albums…
This world is poorer, for the loss of Tom Petty.
In my opinion, the following represents Tom at his absolute best.

He suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died peacefully at 8:40 p.m. PT surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends.”
