Been a fan of Tom Petty since his Album Damn the Torpedoes. Refugee, Don't Do Me Like That, Here Comes My Girl many days listening to that album in risk of being in trouble by my older sister who's album it was. :ugeek:

Any way, Always Sad when one of the greats passes away. Will be missed. Rest In Peace.

Side Note:
Those were the days..., in a time when believe it or not Disco was still dominating, The Steelers were also dominating :D ..., Tom Petty shared the radio with bands like ABBA, John Lennon/Ono, Paul McCartney & Wings, AC/DC, Boston, Rolling Stones, Steve Miller, Foghat, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Kiss, The Police, Deep Purple, Foreigner, Queen, The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, Eagles, The Knack, The Kinks, ELO, Blondie, Cheap Trick, Journey, Toto, David Bowie, The Cars and many, many others were all on the FM dial. VanHalen had just started on the scene in 1978 and was the new kid on the block. Back in the day when most cars still had AM radio's only. Was in the 70's more and more cars began coming with both AM & FM because the sound quality was lightyears better with FM. 8 track tapes were still in production. FM had started taking over the radio waves and was still a new version of radio to me. Anyway, if you didn't have any vinyl album/8 track tape collection(s) you had no choice but to listen to the FM dial. So later on in the 1980's I would take a cheap cassette tape recorder and record songs off the radio. Now that I've aged myself... :lol:

Even if most of the fans only know the chorus, this is still really cool:

Hey Spike

This is a true shame and loss -- Mr Petty along with Bob Dylan is America

Gord Downie from the Tragically Hip lost his battle with cancer yesterday. Been a rough two or three weeks for great lyricists, and the music world in general.
