When I first saw that Tom Petty passed, I was really hoping it was an internet hoax. I still am in shock. I had to keep checking the news sources and at first the stories conflicted. To observe the actual moment when Wikipedia updated from saying “Tom Petty IS an American musician…” to Tom Petty WAS an American musician…” well no pun intended it breaks my heart.
To wake up to hearing about the deadliest shooting spree in US history and then the death of a Rock and Roll Legend, I just can’t wait for this day to be over. Below I have included one of my favorite Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers videos “You Got Lucky.”
I can’t even describe how much of a loss this is and I am still hoping for the greatest internet hoax of all-time but I guess this is goodbye for now.
