thismomentinblackhistory: God damn it. I had him on my list of people I must absolutely go see -- no excuses -- since 2016. God I am a lazy piece of shiat.


He put on a hell of a show. Saw him 5 different times, and it was great.

:(

Dimensio: I would have gone with "He won't be comin' 'round here no more." but this works better, I think.


The only song of his I remember.   *shakes tiny fist*

This makes Jeff Lynne the last remaining Traveling Wilbury... so sad.

Carousel Beast: The submission should simply have been "Heartbreaker" or "Heartbroken"


I thought his band were the heartbreakers. You don't think Country Joe was a fish, do ya?

Definitely the right time for the KeithRichardslookwhoIoutlivedtoday.jpg but I'm not posting it in honor of one of my favorite musicians.

So happy I got to see you live.

I was never a huge fan but recall thinking that 'Full Moon Fever' was a pretty darn good album.

I saw him in 1996.  Lightening hit the stage and blew all the power.  He came out after a bit and starting doing acoustic.  It was brilliant.

RIP Tom.

It will be difficult to accomodate his request to be buried in the river.  Wading is the hardest part.
 
2017-10-02 03:58:03 PM  
Worse, we are now receiving reports that a longtime friend of Mr. Petty stood him up at the gates of Hell.

I never figured Richard Petty would outlive Tom Petty. Must be something to those BC Powders.

Don't put Bob Dylan in the ground just yet.

Well, just last week he finished up a major 40th anniversary tour with 3 sold out shows in L.A.

we all gotta go, sounds like he went out on a high note.

Me too.  I'm kicking myself for not going to see him the two times I had the chance.

After Prince and Chris Cornell, I promised myself I'd never pass up an opportunity to see an artist I like again. Even if they disappoint me.  I'm looking at you U2.
 
2017-10-02 03:59:12 PM  
I'm so bummed, he was arguably America's greatest rock and roll songwriter.  I just saw him last week, sorry to say i saw his final concert.

rgGolf4: brandent: I know I am going straight to hell and am a very bad person but I had a worse reaction to this than the Vegas thing.

Me too...

Just saw him in June, probably my fourth time.  Always a great show.  Only one Petty, I'm sure there will be more shootings.


I saw him only once (and I'm a Gainesville native) but my wife never got to see him.  Sad times tonight. :(
 
2017-10-02 03:59:42 PM  
I won't pretend to be the biggest Tom Petty fan (I only have his anthology), but three of his songs are all-time faves that always go into rotation when I am drunk.

This absolutely sucks.
