Tough loss, this one.

I still have "Damn the Torpedoes" and "You're Gonna Get It" on vinyl. Started listening to Petty in 1980, but never got to see him live.

yeah, this was my first exposure to him.

i was hooked right away.

For me, one of the things I look for in a band or musician is how good they are live. I hate that I never got to see him perform, but this is one of those rare instances where the live version is way better than the album version.  I love bands like that.

Well, it was kinda fugged up that there were multiple stories out there about him being on life support, already dead, etc. I was driving home from the gym at about 7:30PM and Jim Ladd was doing his show on Sirius XM (was the subject and inspiration for "The Last DJ") and giving "best wishes" to Tom and his family, although other news sources had already said he was dead. Ladd was saying he was still hospitalized and had no report that Petty was gone.
