Goodbye, Tom Petty
(October 20, 1950 – October 2, 2017)
Iconic classic rocker Tom Petty has passed away. He suffered a cardiac incident and was rushed to the hospital Sunday night. After LAPD inadvertently released incomplete information to media sources Monday afternoon, it has now been confirmed that Petty passed at UCLA-Santa Monica Medical Center.
I loved Tom Petty and I covered his songs because I wanted know what it felt like to fly.

Tom Petty memory: I'm 14. "Refugee" blaring on stereo. Mom yells up stairs. "Do you really like that music?"
Yes, mom, I do.#RIPTomPetty

Tom Petty gone? That’s just so wrong. What a bad day this has been, in so many ways.
