Tom Petty feared dead

Checking Gateway Pundit for verification, but this will have to do for now:

He put on a solid show and wrote many great tunes. Brought that jangly 12 string Rickenbacker sound back to vogue in the late '70s. If true he will be missed.

I knew a few folks that saw him on this last 40th anniversary tour and they said he sounded at best OK but really looked like sheet. Not sure if it was drugs but something was up; he should have left some $s on the table and not done such an exhaustive tour.

Damn! He's such a good one. I believe he just finished his 40th anniversary tour last week. I guess he pushed it too far. Very sad. Another sad note but not as severe, apparently Bob Seger had to cancel his concert in Columbus Saturday because of a pinched nerve. I hate seeing these guys getting so old. I wish I'd seen Tom Petty earlier this year in The 'Nati. At least I've seen Bob Seger here in Cincinnati and in Indianapolis over the past few years. Seger's show last month was every bit as good as any I've seen from him.

Sounds like news outlets re-confirmed late last night that he had, in fact (finally) died.

The entire situation yesterday was very weird. The figured out that TP had not been breathing for hours when found and there was no brain activity when he checked out at the hospital yet they would not say he had passed? When someone cannot breath usually that means they are dead.

I remember seeing TP&tHBs on Don Kirshner's late night before his early contract dispute, and couldn't understand why they didn't take off as I recalled the performance. Then I found after a little checking that the lack of exposure was self-inflicted.

The early songs were perhaps a bit weaker lyrically, but the music reinvigorated rock in my mind.

I hadn't followed Petty in many years, but now that I've been reading bio info it seems that his overall health was self-inflicted as well, and likely contributed to his untimely death.

Really liked his duo with Steve Nicks, and I thought "You Got Lucky" (along with accompanying MTV video) was a fresh and melodic composition that stood out from the other early 80's tunes.

However, it was this cover of "Don't Bring Me Down" that was my favorite by TP. Q-FM 96 in Columbus played this frequently for a couple of years over 30 years ago, then it pretty much disappeared:

Just saw TP's passing on the local news for the first time. Seems they were hesitant to say one way or the other whether it was true considering the uncertainty immediately after. Coming on the heels of the Vegas tragedy, this was another kick in the gut. RIP to all.

In viewing the picture of the Traveling Wilburys it appears the boys are passing away in the same order as their picture, moving from right to left with Roy Orbison the first to go, followed by George Harrison and now Tom Petty the latest.

If the pattern continues then Jeff Lynne should be a bit nervous and Bob Dylan ends up as the last man standing.

RIP : Roy aka Lefty Wilbury
RIP : George aka Nelson (later Spike) Wilbury
RIP : Tom aka Charlie T. ( later Muddy Jr) Wilbury
