R.I.P.  A fine musician indeed.

Toronto approx 2008:

Only saw him the once... supporting Lofgren... '78 iirc... I already had the first LP, all the 12's that came from it (still have them), and had the UK copy of the official boot on tape (friend had it; 5 tracks to the US 4 track, which I have too) which I played to death... Dog On The Run, not on that first LP but on the Leg, is still one of my all time fave songs... played it the night I saw them... also played a then unreleased song called I Need To Know...
I just never got round to seeing him again after they took off...
rip Tom... :sad:
Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

Local video about how Tom fulfilled a dying woman's wish to meet him a few months ago. She's still hanging on, now he's gone.

I posted this on FB yesterday, someone just uploaded it on 10/3. Worth 20 minutes of your time.

Garry Shandling and Tom Petty both died suddenly of heart attacks at 66 despite no history of heart problems.

Nice clip. I could'nt help but noticing his smoking habit. If 4 cigarettes during 20 minutes was his usual smoking rate, that may be some kind of explanation to what happened to him.

R.I.P. Mr Petty. Even as a teenager that was into hard rock/heavy metal, I loved Tom Petty. There was just something special about it to me. This is a big loss IMO.

(1) It was, and (2) I'm sure it was.

The chain smoking couldn't have helped, that's for sure.
