Tom Petty

Tommy Petty is gone.

He was sort of a guilty pleasure. From my perspective, his music wasn't the best, but he wrote some great lyrics.

He wrote some classics.

Don't forget, at one point two of the greatest, perhaps the two greatest American lyricists were in the same band at the same time. George Harrison said the second of these was a collaboration between Dylan and Petty.

I don't believe
The good times are over
I don't believe
The thrill is all gone
Real love
Is a man's salvation
The weak give up
The strong carry on

- Tom Petty, "Straight Into Darkness"

Tom Petty was able to blend the classic sounds of the 60s into the cheesy pop scene of the 70s without taking anything away from either one. Huge loss...

Petty died of an accidental OD, as he took opioids for hip fracture pain. The OD led to his heart attack.
