    So sad and stunned to hear about this on Monday. Only 66! Always loved Tom Petty - he was just one of a kind - cool, authentic, American rock 'n' roll.

    I'll have to check out the doc on Netflix.

    I do believe Tom was suffering from pain in his hip especially as he followed his bandmates offstage. Reportedly he had somehow fractured it and was under a doctor's care presumably for treatment/pain management.
    USA TODAY is reporting that the coroner's office is conducting an investigation because he hadn't seen a doctor in over 6 months and that they also have to wait on the toxicology report before ruling on cause of death. No foul play is suspected.

    Could be a smoking related illness since he smoked for almost 50 years but with his history, by his own admission, of Heroin usage it could be drugs.

    Only in L.A.!

    Sherman Oaks Galleria is honoring Tom Petty with a Vampire Walk around the mall on Oct. 19th. at 7:00 p.m. Attendees, you guessed it, are encouraged to sing Free Falling as they walk.

    Stay Tuned!

    So cool!

    Finally got up enough courage to watch all the tribute videos online including his American Girl finale at the Bowl!

    The man was a tune-smith that had a way with words and my favorite Petty line comes from the song About to Give Out.

    "Yeah, I hit town hard last night (Daytona)......We woke up in the bushes beat to hell and nude!" Road tripping and rockin' the roll and maybe "getting wasted along the way!" Bring back the seventies!

    That's really awesome! I was watching a bit of the game and they showed a certain tupelo tree on campus that was said to be Petty's favorite. Not that he went to school there, but he worked as a groundskeeper for a time.

    I saw it on the national news the other day and thought it was very cool. So nice of them to do that.

    I am sure there will be many tributes to Tom Petty in the coming weeks and months. Tom has a huge fanbase and many friends in the songwriting, recording and entertainment industry who credit him as a major influence in their career/success. Tom was the real thing. What you saw was what you got. He always strived to put on the best show and to produce the best records. He also wasn't afraid to stand up to the industry. He put his fans first.
