    Not a big fan of most things coming out of Hogtown, but TP was a good one. Here is his ode to Gainseville.

    There are conflicting reports about his death. He was put on life support and at first it was stated he was pulled off life support.

    Tmz says he is still on life support and lapd can't confirm his death.

    Didn't know that. The guys on IG were talking about him dying. Went to You Tube, and there were several news reports of his death.

    He supposedly is still on life support and the family has do not resuscitate. :sad: I hope he can pull through so way but I doubt it.
    He is one of the best things to come out of Florida.

    He was finally offered a record deal and they said we want you but lose your band, this happens fro some artists. Tom pretty much told them Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers or f**k off.

    He later fought the dishonest record companies just like Prince did. He and the Heartbreakers are one of the best and most original American bands.

    Great song, creepy video and it deals witrh death.

    It's always been amazing to me that Tom Petty got into the best super band in the history of super bands. I mean this lineup is a Who's Who of rock music.

    Well Tom and his band were well respected in England where the fans can be pretty tough and discerning I think to some extent, England really broke the band on their first tour in the UK. A bit like Cheap Trick broke it big with Live At Budokan or breaking it in Japan. Also like Depeche Mode getting over the hump to superstardom with goth college kids in the USA. They were kind of slagged off by many in the UK.

    Tom only played again in the UK about 5 years ago or so to critical acclaim and big crowds.

    I think all Wilburys idiolized Roy and for good reason.

    Roy was the real deal. That makes three of the Wilburys dead now, right? Only Lucky and Otis left. They need to. . . .

    The Beatles supposedly idiolized Roy. RIngo is either high or overwhelmed. LOL.

    What is so amazing is The Beatles, who became the biggest band in the world, idolized two guys who created music is two of the most depressing and backwater areas in Texas. Buddy Holly in Lubbock and Roy in Wink, Texas near the oil fields. Buddy was no looker and neither was poor Roy with terrible eyesight. They sure made up for it with great music.

    The Beatles also came from another somewhat backwater in Liverpool as did ToM petty breaking out of Gainesville, Florida.

    The one good thing about Texas is it was flat as hell and most music was on AM radio. A radio station is Texas could reach a lot of people. I think Roy at the time was loved even more in the UK than the US a bit like Eddie Cochran who died in a car wreck in England.

    Those other blokes are Gerry and the Pacemakers.

    This is a love song...

    Actually...it's not a love song.

    It's a song about drugs.
