    We're losing a lot of the older legendary generation.
    Kind of disheartening for us older folks.

    LAPD is now saying they can't confirm his death and the LA coroner has no reports of his death.

    Tom Petty was a window to the future for me,  after The Allman Bros and Lynyrd Skynyrd untimely demise it was like 'what now'? TP was like, yea that will work.

    "Cooking isn't about struggling; It's about pleasure. It's like sǝx, with a wider variety of sauces."

    I hate myself, and I don't regret any of it.

    At any given time the urge to sing "In The Jungle" is just a whim away... A whim away... A whim away...

    There was a lot of misinformation out there but it is official now.

    Free Fallin' and Out In The Cold. Only non-studio version of Out In The Cold I could find. Great songs.

    I saw them three times on that tour and you are correct. Tom played bass guitar on that song at times and he said at least once "Its time to get out the heavy artillery" as he switched guitars. He was having a blast.

    Here's a great oldie for you, Dirt.

    Yeah, I know its a Byrds cover but Tom did it better IMO

    That is another great song, I agree, better than the original.
    TP was a touring machine in the years, he would play a community college campus or anywhere he could get a gig.
    The audience participation he could elicit was incredible, not sure if this carried over into the later years, last I saw him was '79 in Seattle.

    I saw him in the early 2000s big venue gig. Four encores. He played over an hour and half.

    The last time I saw him in Minneapolis he played just over two hours.

    That's cool, in 79 I was surprised everybody knew the song. RIP TP

    I've been revisiting some old Tom Petty albums that I haven't listened to for a while. This is from the She's The One soundtrack. Tom was asked to submit a song for the soundtrack and he delivered an entire album. The studio used all of it.

    Here is the Super Bowl halftime show I watched.
