    This one hurts deep. Tom Pettys songs were an ode to American love stories. They were about following your heart and taking a chance on the girl u love. They had such an underlying message of hope. Tom petty was what I listened to in the car , on the way to some of the best times of my life. When my daughter was born if she had trouble sleeping I would rock her to sleep to the song wildflowers.  Cant belive this day.

    ^ Is that possible if he is off life support? Maybe he's sub-consciously hanging on so people can say goodbye. 
    it is, as long as your heart keeps beating. likely it will stop when his body gets poisoned from his other organs shutting down. people can live for days after being taken off life support, depending on how strong their heart is.

    Damn this sucks.  Over the past couple of years I have really jumped into his vast catalogue of studio and live albums.  He's now one of my favorites and has been number 1 on my bucketlist to see for awhile.  I missed him on this past tour because I had tickets for another show that was local on the same night.  I always figured I had more time to see him.

    I was wrong.

    The great thing about music though is that it lives on forever.  His music will live on forever.

    I saw Tom and the Heartbreakers on the same stage with Pearl Jam in Milwaukee during the 2006 tour. Also saw TP & the HB perform songs with Jackson Browne and Steve Winwood over the years.

    He was a great collaborator, and a great American impressionist... He will be missed.

    Tom and Ed seemed to be really close.  I think Danny Clinch recently shared an anecdote about being at Ed's house when he opened a letter from Tom.

    Heavy heavy heart...Just kept praying "not Tom-not yet "
    got a car...got some gas...oh let's get out of here-get out of here fast...
    I hope you get this message but your not home...I will be there in just a minute or so...
    I want to go but I want to go with you.

    Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. -MT

    I've had enough, said enough, felt enough. I'm fine, still in it.

    Very very sad to hear this news. I had wanted to go see Tom on this recent tour, but wasn't able to go. I remember thinking I would see him next time he comes around.  May he rest in peace, and may his music live on forever!

    Man this one hit me harder than I thought it would.  Rest In peace, Tom.  Really wish I could have gone to a show this last tour, but thankful to see him live a long time ago.

    On another note, has anyone seen or have 400 Days, the documentary on Wildflowers that I believe is only in the super deluxe live anthology box set?  Just wondering how it is, have always wanted to see it, but didn't get the huge deluxe set.   Hopefully they'll release it individually someday.  Wildflowers has always been one of my favorite albums of his, and I've been playing it nonstop the last couple days.
    No time to be void or save up on life, you gotta spend it all.

    I can't help but think about how he had to postpone the second Greek Theater Berkeley show in August because of laryngitis. Later, he reported that it wasn't just laryngitis, it was bronchitis. I remember thinking that bronchitis is nothing to mess with and that he should take as much time as he needed to get better. But he was back on stage just five days later. I don't want to speculate, but I can't help but think that it could have been a contributing factor.

    I have that boxset and I watched the doc.  I quite liked it because it's also my favourite Petty album.

    The thing that excited me though, is that news that came out a year or two ago.   That Wildflowers was originally recorded as a double album, but got released as a single album.  A few songs got retooled and made it onto the she's the one soundtrack, but there's basically a whole album from my favourite era of tom petty and no ones heard it.

    News articles kept indicating it was going to get released and be called "all the rest".  In fact digitally release a single from it a while ago, but no release date has ever appeared :(
