Does to me as well -- Huntington Beach, California -- Marina High School, '66 thru '68.

Where it was at -- for a young teenager -- music, surfin', hanging out at the beach & near the HB pier, girls, Lions Dragstrip & the new Orange County Raceway weekends, hitchhiking & bumming rides everywhere in southern Cal. The days folks. :Priceless memories & music was a big part of it.

Best Sir,

Bob

Default Thank you, Mr. Petty, and God bless

Petty was absolutely brillliant as a total musician and poet. In particular, he embodied in the art form a superbly incisive understanding of the human condition. To be able to creatively express such complexity the way he was able, with such raw & organic emotion and intelligence, for such important and meaningful themes, is a true gift. Some may refer to this as genius. Regardless, I join you all in saying I am thankful for his time here, for his contributions. His music touched me personally, and he is deeply missed by many. His melodies and lyrics helped me through some difficult, and very dark, times in my life. In particular for me, "I won't back down" is a humbling and inspiring anthem for resilience. That tune alone has been worth more than its weight in gold for me. Bless you, Mr. Petty. God be with you.
My best,
Shrinky


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…

Very very sad indeed. May his musical / poetic / artistic legacy carry on forever. In our household, at least one album by TP gets played back here every day and wish my kids (aged 19, 17 and 11) do maintain that tradition.

I'll say this about Tom petty. He was still making relevant music even at an older age. I remember getting my friends drum kit and putting refugee on the turntable and playing the kit over and over and over.. My mom was a freaking saint.

Somehow I feel like he isn't getting his due but the beauty of Tom petty is he wouldn't give a 'F'.

Honestly ? This blows

ya know
"Somehow I feel like he isn't getting his due but the beauty of Tom petty is he wouldn't give a 'F'."

I feel exactly the same, but I wont go there since it is not politically correct the reasons. But Tom would not give a rats as you say

He was such a major artist and writer worked even with Johnny Cash, so many pop groups he was DEEP!

Surely missed but left us a lot right.

Check out his rock n roll hall of fame performance with prince. Prince blew the top off - best guitar solo I've ever seen. Tom did great - everyone just sort of had to stand back and let prince do his thing.

Can't wait to get home and replay this on the SME -- 3 LP set I bought years ago. I visited the TW website this evening and it asked if I wanted a Wilbury name - came out as: "Welcome aboard the Wilbury train, Theodore Wilbury!"

Funny.





Petty was a hall of famer & rightly deserved.

Best Sirs,

Bob

No doubt. Prince could shred with the best of them and was a great performer. I met him in a bar in 1982 after one of his shows. Nice guy as well.
