That report was erroneous. He's still alive. He might not make it, but as for now....

I remember Tom talking on a documentary about commenting to another Willbury (Harrison maybe?) when Roy Orbison died "I'm glad it's not me". "Yeah, me too" said the other. It seemed a little strange.

I'm too old for this shit. Everybody's dying.

Never a huge TP fan, but I didn't object to him either. I have a bin in my mind for musicians who's work I don't buy, but I don't change the channel when they come on the radio either. He's always been in there. I did like a lot of his songs though, despite being over-programmed.

I always thought Petty was the best (and my favorite) of the so-called heartland rockers or blue collar rockers which to me would include Springsteen, Bob Seger, Cougar/Mellencamp, etc.

Waaaaay back in 1986 I was waiting at Wellington airport to collect a work colleague when "fuck me dead" there's Bob Dylan and his entourage coming through the arrivals lounge, I made a beeline for Bob to get an autograph when I was intercepted by a massive mountain of a man who made it quite clear that Mr. Dylan wasn't signing any autographs......I resisted the urge to ask Bob if he wanted to buy some mandies and got out of the way, then a voice behind me said, hey man I'll sign your book, it was Tom Petty, I was a little shocked and mumbled something, when Tom was done he handed my dairy to this stunning woman beside him to sign, and that is how I got Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty's autographs.....My wife, the queen of autographs, was green with envy for years afterwards..... :mrgreen:

^ Not a very good caricature, but the cartoonist knows what a Rickenbacker looks like!

I don't own any albums by Springsteen, Cougar or Seger.
I own every Tom Petty album.


Do you lump Petty in with those three? I've heard this Heartland thing a few times and it seems way off the mark. It's just that Tom Petty is psychedelic rock from Los Angeles via Florida. In the early years it was more like pop rock or whatever. His lyrics are on a whole different level, too.

Here's something I'm sure no one's ever heard: Why is Keith Richards still around and Tom Petty is gone? :wink: Nothing against you Keef, it's just so odd.

Here's my Tom Petty story: Many years ago when Tom and Bob toured, a friend and I went to see them at The Paso Robles Fair (I'll bet Plook has been there.) and we sat in the bleachers next to where the artists went backstage. Here comes Mister Dylan, silent and not acknowledging anyone...most of the people kind of kidding him to get him to at least wave, to no avail. Tom walks by, we say hey and wave, he looks at many of us there, waves back and smiles wide! At the time, I swore he was looking at my friend and I, but I know he was looking at many of us. So nice to even just wave, didn't take any time. A great rocker and a stand-up guy.
