Tom Petty Officially Announced Dead

I see some of y'all talking about it in the Celebrity Death thread, but this man deserves his own, respectful thread.
"Tom Petty rode to the pinnacle of pop music stardom with his beloved and long-running rock band the Heartbreakers, born out of the ashes of a group that flopped when he brought them from Gainesville, Fla., to California in the mid-1970s. He emerged as one of the most vocal and tireless champions of artistic integrity and musical purity in the record business.

Reportedly found unconscious at his Malibu home on Sunday night, Petty was rushed to UCLA’s Santa Monica hospital in full cardiac arrest and died Monday at 66. For hours, multiple media outlets reported his death only to retract those reports; his death was confirmed Monday night by his family’s spokeswoman. A cause has not been announced.

“On behalf of the Tom Petty family,” said Tony Dimitriades, longtime manager of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, “we are devastated to announce the untimely death of of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty. He suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died peacefully at 8:40 p.m. PT surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends.”

    *Well I know what's right/
    I got just one life/
    In a world that keeps on pushin' me around/
    But I'll stand my ground......

    Heeeyyyyyy baaaaby, there ain't no easy way out/
    You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I wont back down!



    One of his songs that I will randomly sing @ the drop of a dime.

    RIP to a Legend!!

    Cause you ain't post the video is how!

    Growing up all I listened to was black soul and R&B music my mother used to listen to and all I listened to for myself was go-go(my DC 🤬 ) and so called gangsta rap 99% of the time.

    Oh my mother did like some Phil Collins so I heard some of his 🤬 .

    My wife is a music buff. I swear if they ever brought back the game show "Name that tune" I would MAKE her ass go on there and win us some money. That's how much different music she knows. She has expanded my music tastes somewhat but she never played any Tom Petty.

    Gabs you talking to a 🤬 who has still til this day never listened to a whole Kanye West album all the way through.

    That was Steve Miller but R.I.P. Tom Petty. Mary Jane's Last Dance and Won't Back Down were favorites of mine growing up.
