You can see why they're trying to start nuclear war so bad, now.  They're trying to kill him and Ozzy, but we kinda have a glimpse into the future to see who wins that battle:

'Here's my mate!' cries George, elbowing the man next to him, turning away from John, David and Farrokh all having a vigorous discussion about weapons laws. Roy waves over a garçon and orders another round for the table. 'I hope Pete didn't give you any trouble.'

He's a rock star. He came back on stage to do another encore.

Now he's on the tour bus, heading to a brand new gig somewhere. Godspeed, Tom!

Tom_Slick: FarkingSmurf: What a shiatshow with so many major news agencies falling all over themselves to be the one to kill him off, facts be damned.

The early announcement was based on LAPD reports which was later retracted


Interesting. I wonder if the LAPD can be fined for a HIPPA violation.

No.  Remember, it's already October, and we've had a few major deaths.   By this time in 2016, we were off the charts, and the fall didn't let up.

With the exception of Trump-driven insanity, we're WAY better off this year in celebrity/artist deaths than last year.  It's not even close.

He was never a great musician, but he wrote a lot of fun songs, and the world was a little better for having him in it.

TFATom Petty, a songwriter who melded California rock with a deep, stubborn Southern heritage, died on Monday after suffering cardiac arrest. He was 66 and had lived in Los Angeles.

So stubborn it took TWO greenlights for him to let go.
