Tom Petty I’ll miss ya!

in petty •  last year

I gotta stop buying albums. I bought ‘Black Star’ and Bowie dies. I buy ‘Hypnotic Eye’ and Petty dies. WTF?

Seriously, I probably listened to ‘All You Can Carry’ from Hynotic Eye a hundred times this year. Type that into YouTube and give it a listen.

I remember seeing him as an opening act for Be Bop Deluxe back in the 70s. You all know BBD, right? Actually they were awesome and so was Tom Petty.

I’ll leave you with a snippet of lyrics from another great music dude, Todd Snider. From the song “Vinyl Records”

I got Forbert, Fromholtz, Stevie Ray
T-Birds, Yardbirds, Sam and Dave
And as some of y'all mighta guessed already
I got piles and piles and piles of Tom Petty

RIP Tom, I’ll miss ya!

For all the concerts I've gone to, especially when I was younger, sadly I never saw Petty live.

Rolling Stone has a great obit:

If i'll ever make an album, don't buy it bro, i'll give it to you for free :)))

LOL! Good one, I believe it to be a coincidence :) Stop over for a Petty little cover. I'm still kind of in shock! ~Rock On~
