Found unconscious. Sorry no link, I'm on my phone.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

Sad. Saw him in 90 or 91, can't remeber. Awesome show. RIP. One less rockstar.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Same age as I, we had mutual friends in Gainesville, FL where he was from, and one of my oldest friends was his manager for years...and yet we never met.

So many KILLER songs...gonna skip the mainstream stuff, here's just a very few of my "other" favorites of TP's.







and finally......loved it when I first heard the album, was a DJ at the time.

KILLER live version:



Lot's of great memories associated with TP's music, our mutual friends, and the many times his music intertwined with situations in my life.

You will be missed Tom Petty.

66 is way too young. I really hope he pulls through this.

Tom has now joined George and Roy, they are probably jamming away already, like the good old days. Such musical talent as will never be seen again!



In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!
