Tom Petty - Dead at 66 - Very SadsteemCreated with Sketch.

in music •  last year

I just saw that Tom Petty died at 8:40 p.m. PT in Los Angeles, last night, October 2, 2017. This was a shock for me. This is a guy that I came of age listening to, and he had an amazing string of hits. He was also a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and was very highly respected by other musicians as an incredible songwriter and performer.

I just watched the Tom Petty Documentary (Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers: Runnin' Down a Dream) on Netflix about a week ago. With his music always being played on the classic rock station that I listen to daily, it'll be hard to imagine he's gone. Whether his music was what you listen to or not, his contribution to the music industry can never go unnoticed.

Here's one of Tom Petty's biggest hits, and my favorite Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers songs, 'I Won't Back Down.'

RIP Tom Petty - Oct 20, 1950 - Oct 03, 2017 (age 66)
