First saw Tom at the closing of Winterland, 12/78, San Francisco.

Sirius has a Beatles channel too. All the way to Cabo.

Guess I'll break out ''Running Down a Dream'', his DVD doc.

JZ had this song on one of his vids.

Took this pic last Monday at the Hollywood Bowl. Last date of his 40 year anniversary tour. My favorite artist all time.

I saw him 2-3 summers ago at MSG. I hadnt seen him since 1980.

Pretty darn good song writer.

Some question as to whether he is deceased. Looks like the LAPD announcement was either premature or shouldnt have been released by them.

Well, sh*t. "Breakdown" was one of my favorite songs in the 80s. Esquire ran an interview with him awhile back. My favorite line was this: "Do something you really like, and hopefully it pays the rent. As far as I'm concerned, that's success."

1:35 PM PT — Sources tell us at 10:30 Monday morning a chaplain was called to Tom’s hospital room. We’re told the family has a do not resuscitate order on Tom. The singer is not expected to live throughout the day, but he’s still clinging to life. A report that the LAPD confirmed the singer’s death is inaccurate — the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. handled the emergency.

This from MSN.

www.independent.co.uk/

According to an initial LAPD source via CBS News and Variety, he was taken off life support soon after.

Yet later tweets from CBS and the LAPD claim that the department has “no information about the passing of singer Tom Petty” and any information has been “inadvertently provided”, with both apologising.

He reformed his original band Mudcrutch recently and cut a couple of records with them. Here's a video.

A friend told me he had been smoking since he was 17 and just recently got below a pack a day. That's 50 years of smoking more than a pack a day.

A very hard habit to kick, indeed. This is how many end up stopping.

There might have been other smoking involved too, eh? ;)

There was a time between Damn the Torpedos to Full Moon Fever to Wildflowers that he was probably my favorite rock artist. I grew tired of much of the syn-tech 80s sound that gave way to rap/hip-hop in the 90s. There was very little else on LA broadcast radio, especially when KSCA became Spanish around 1995. Thirty to forty years of "classic rock" had finally gotten old, too. The Smooth Jazz emergence was initially attractive but, ultimately, not interesting enough to listen to, except at dinner parties.

Without the emergence of sat radio and channels like The Loft, The Spectrum, Bluesville, the 40s channel (love the Swing Era!), Classic Jazz and occasionally Willie's Roadhouse, The Coffee House or Symphony Hall, I dont know what I'd listen to these days. Contemporary country is too predictable. Contemporary Christian is too hopeful. Contemporary pop is plain unlistenable.

Even the Grateful Dead channel has too many bad, live performances from the late 80s and early 90s, when Jerry was spiraling down. When the Dead were ON, they were the best jam band ever. When they weren't, they weren't worth listening to...........

And, yes, the Tom Petty Channel, got me through. I would listen to that, too. Much more variety than just Tom playing Tom's music. Early rock roots. Obscure stuff from around the planet. Very unpredictable.

No doubt about it. Tom Petty was really, well, instrumental in bridging the gap from the death of commercial rock radio to the variety of sat radio, for me.

This prolonged purgatory of waiting for the official word of his passing, reminds me of a line from one of my favorite songs of his,

"What they hey, baby. There ain't no easy way out........."
