RIP Tom Petty


#1

#2

That’s really sad news. His super bowl show a few years ago was great. So many anthems


#3

oh no, RIP. what a legend


#4

He soundtracks many a car journey as a kid. This is very sad news.


#5

what a horrible day.

i love a fair share of tom petty music and havent really talked about him much on DiS I dont think. Free Fallin is one of the first songs I can remember shouting at the top of my lungs with the whole family. so many belters.

I still maintain Wildflowers is a masterpiece.

Time to Move On seems appropriate:

Crawling Back to You is his most beautiful song


#6

Grown to really love some of his stuff in the last couple of years. How sad :frowning:


#7

Full Moon Fever was a regular album on in my house while I was growing up. This is sad news.


#8

Saw him at hyde park this year with Stevie Nicks and he still had it. RIP


#9

This is such rubbish news. Absolutely love ripping through American Girl with my band. RIP Tom.


#10

that song is such a fucking tune


#11

Traveling wilburys wrote some fucking great songs. Sad news :frowning:


#12

Only two of them left now :frowning:


#13

Christ :weary:


#14

I had a ticket for Goldfrapp at Somerset House already booked. I was thinking of leaving it for Tom Petty. I didn’t. I’ll regret it for ages.


#15

Apparently reports of his death were premature? Though he is critically ill:


#16

Extremely sad. Major Petty fan, first concert I ever saw was Tom and the Heartbreakers at the New Haven Coliseum on the Dogs With Wings Tour. Jayhawks opened, great show. “Wildflowers” Top 5 albums of the 90’s imo. Great artist, great performer will be sorely missed.


#17

Had the chance to go to that and passed :slightly_frowning_face:


#18

Me too. Like a twat.


#19

perfect half time americana


#20

He was just great, wasn’t he? A true bard has been lost.
