    His manager has now officially announced Tom Petty's death as having happened earlier this evening, per CNN.

    May he rest in peace. He sure brought a lot of joy into my life.

    My favorite singer of all time. So so so sad.

    This has been a horrible year.

    I guess it was selfish to wish for him to stay around longer. So many songs that I had forgotten....

    I Need to Know.



    Rest in Peace Tom Petty

    this one is tough. So sad that he worked so hard for so long, just finished his probable last tour, brought so much joy to so many, and just didn't get enough time to relax and enjoy his success.

    As we are reminded here time after time, life isn't fair.

    NPR has been running a wonderful story today with excerpts of his commentary from various shows and lots of his songs. He said several things that were unexpected and insightful and wow, he knew who he was and stuck to what was important to him.

    Sad for all of those (so many of US here) who live on, missing him.

    Tom Petty was a brilliant songwriter, an emotional, and an ethereally attractive man. His face stands out as one of the greats of all time.

    His sound was BIG. -Full bodied and orchestral. What I love most in Petty is that he was unafraid in his music. His was his own sound.

    God bless him

    I like that folks I disagree with elsewhere on WS are able to come together for tributes like this one. We all know good music when we hear it/feel it. =)

    And TP liked to bring people together, he said so himself.
