TOM PETTY

It was already a horrifying Monday.  Most of us in the States woke up to news that a gunman shot more than 500 people at a country music concert, killing (at last check) 59.  Then came the other sucker punch.

I personally knew several people who packed into the Hollywood Bowl to see Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers play barely a week ago.  Now, in the blink of an eye since then, a world without Tom Petty is a reality.  That is something I never, ever thought was conceivable.

I can't really add much to the enormous chorus of tributes and memories about how much Tom's music meant to us.  As far as I'm concerned, not much will ever beat Tom's poetry meshed with Jeff Lynne's record craft.

#RIPTom Petty.  And thank you.
