Between this and the events in Las Vegas, this has been a horrible day so far.

Re: Tom Petty In Critical Condition After Cardiac Arrest

Never cried this much over a celebrity before. 66 is mighty young, thought I had another ten Petty shows left to go to. Tom's got me through a lot of my toughest times.

Re: Tom Petty In Critical Condition After Cardiac Arrest

He has no brain activity and they pulled life support.... I'm not a doctor but I think the family is just waiting for him to pass at this point..........

Sad Re: Tom Petty In Critical Condition After Cardiac Arrest

I cannot stop crying because I just heard he did died. 2:15am. Horrible, Horrible, Horrible. I want to wake up and find it was just a bad dream. Why? Why? Why?

Re: Tom Petty In Critical Condition After Cardiac Arrest

When the Traveling Wilburys formed Tom Petty was the youngest member and being a big fan of music and music history probably looked up to the others as his heroes but in the end he was very much their equal. R.I.P.

Re: Tom Petty In Critical Condition After Cardiac Arrest

I'm completely bummed. There aren't too many musicians left who make me look forward to buying their next albums, and Tom was definitely one of the few. My wife and I got to see him in April for the first time, so I'll always have that. I always appreciated that he left his politics offstage, and that he always seemed to really ENJOY playing. There's a recent biography that I heard about on the radio, so I'll have to pick that one up. Apparently he had a very rough childhood, but managed to pursue his dream and wind up making music that will last long after he's gone. The guy had multiple great albums in every decade I've been alive, and his death leaves a void for me.

Well stated. Sadly, much like Bowie and other artists, I never got around to seeing him. Although I wasn't a huge fan, I certainly appreciated his talent and other's appreciation of him.

Re: Tom Petty In Critical Condition After Cardiac Arrest

I am still stunned at this terrible news. Tom's music followed me through life and I will always miss him. Hard to listen to his music now but I have Damn The Torpedoes album cranked as I write this. I appreciate this forum and had to get here to share my grief. Rest In Peace Tom. Music won't be the same anymore.
