Tom Petty.

Post by Angry Andy on Mon Oct 02, 2017 8:58 pm

Cardiac arrest a short time ago. No brain activity.
So sad. So talented. So young. No hope of recovery.

That's a shame. I'm not fond of soft rock, but I did like "Make it better".

REPORTS of Tom Petty’s death have been greatly exaggerated.


For several hours this morning, music lovers around the world believed the rock icon was dead.

Courtney Love, Talib Kweli, Kid Rock, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Stanley and Lin-Manuel Miranda were among scores of fans posting remembrances on Twitter, where Petty was the top worldwide trending topic. But the 66-year-old entertainer is still alive, and news outlets that announced his death retracted their stories.

He's still kickin

One of my favorite artists.

TOM Petty has died aged 66.


The legendary Free Fallin’ rocker suffered cardiac arrest earlier this morning according to a statement released by Petty’s longtime manager.

“On behalf of the Tom Petty family, we are devastated to announce the untimely death of of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty,” Tony Dimitriades, longtime manager of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, wrote in a statement on behalf of the family.

“He suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died peacefully at 8:40 p.m. PT surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends.”

Petty’s daughter, AnnaKim Violette, paid tribute to her father on Instagram, writing:

“One week ago today I was watching my dad play. We showed up rushed to our seats. I got stoned had a beer. The lights went dark. (I) sat watching realising I grew up on these songs, everyone grew up on these songs. This is real American Art made from the roots of real people who deeply love life.

“My father loves music more than anything and always put music first. It’s going to be healing to know I will never go a day without hearing his music. I love his class honesty and how strange and funny he is.

“Tom Petty is an American Icon because his heart has always put human rights first. We are one. I love you dad. Your songs are dreams manifested.”

Smile

The police initially 'jumped the gun' announcing his death earlier, while he was still on life support in the hospital (though already with no brain activity at that time..).

A few hours later, he was officially declared dead by his family and the hospital..

Did Petty write songs for Buddy Holly, or Roy Orbison?

He was only nine when Buddy Holly died, so I wouldn't think so.

Well, I won't back down
No, I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

No, I'll stand my ground
Won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground
And I won't back down
(I won't back down)

Hey, baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground
And I won't back down
(I won't back down)

Hey, baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
Hey, I won't back down
(I won't back down)
Hey, baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
No, I won't back down
