Tom Petty... Can't Post

Tom Petty passed away last night from a heart attack at the age of 66. Such a great collaborator and music-man. Rest in peace...

My cousin and his wife [In reply to] Can't Post

chose "I Won't Back Down" as their theme when she was diagnosed with cancer. It sustained them through a long battle, but unfortunately we lost her a few weeks ago. Thinking of my cousin today, their four boys, and the Petty family and friends.

Tom Petty will be missed by many. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure that I would have agreed with Mr. Petty's politics, but I respected him as a musician and an artist. His "I Won't Back Down" has become a personal anthem for many persons.

Tom Petty's final accomplishment: he survived the first reports of his death by most of a day. Not the worst way to go out after a life well-lived.

ohhhh... oh no... [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a strong song, and I'm glad it inspired them. I'm so sorry she didn't make it. :(
