A class act.

RIP!

I saw him 10 years ago at Redrocks w/ Black Crows opening 3rd row center. Great show! My satellite radio is mostly on ch 31 (Tom Petty Radio).

Yes RIP Tom Petty. Lots of memories to TP songs as a kid.
I can place myself in times past to a lot of his songs.
Had opportunity to see him last month here in Seattle. Passed on it, too busy. Didn't know it would be the last time...

While sad, much more of a class act than the artists taking their own lives.
