Decent of the LAPD to clear it up. Incompetent of them to do it, but decent of them to clear it up. Maybe CBS threatened to bring up the Chris Brown/Rihanna scandal again...

Very sad to hear that Tom Petty has passed. One of the last true rock n' rollers. I personally rate their last album, "Hypnotic Eye" as some of his best work. From a selfish perspective, I would've loved to hear more music from the man. Rest in peace Tom, you were taken too early.

Jon and Tom did a lot of charities together in the mid to late 90s both contributing to multiple Special Olympics shows...

Having listened to Tom most of yesterday, this was my early highlight. It's not a deep cut by any means but I hadn't heard this one prior to his death and I think it's great.

This is a good list

Tom Petty is that singer nobody under 30 knows by name but whose songs you've heard more than once, be it on a classic rock radio station, or in another singer/band sound and style. Very understated artist but very influential nonetheless

As a 19 y.o. none of my friends really knew of him except through me. I listened to him a lot through my senior years at school, and I too have been listening to him non-stop since yesterday... This is one of my favourites from his 2014 album: https://youtu.be/v9kL1Nm57bw

And now 3 of the Wilburys have passed too... they were the ultimate supergroup.

About a time that once existed

If you stretch your imagination
I'll tell you all a tale
About a time when everything
Wasn't up for sale

There was this cat named Johnny
Who loved to play and sing
When money wasn't king

We'd all get so excited
When John would give a show
We'd raise the cash between us
And down the road we'd go
To hear him play that music
It spoke right to my soul
Every verse a diamond
And every chorus gold

The sound was my salvation
It was only everything
Before money became king

Well I ain't sure how it happened
And I don't know exactly when
But everything got bigger
And the rules began to bend
And the tv taught the people
How to get their hair to shine
And how sweet life can be
If you keep a tight behind

And they raised the cost of living
And how could we have known
They'd double the price of tickets
To go see Johnny's show?

So we hocked all our possessions
And we sold a little dope
And went off to rock 'n' roll

We arrived there early
In time to see rehearsal
And John came out and lip-synched
His new lite-beer commercial
And as the crowd arrived
As far as I could see
The faces were all different
There was no one there like me

They sat in golden circles
And waiters served them wine
And talked through all the music
And to John paid little mind
And way up in the nosebleeds
We watched upon the screen
They hung between the billboards
So cheaper seats could see

Johnny, rock that golden circle
And all those VIP's
And that music that had freed us
Became a tired routine
And I saw his face in close-up
Trying to give it all he had
And sometimes his eyes betrayed him
You could see that he was sad

And I tried to rock on with him
But i slowly became bored
Could that man on stage with everything
Somehow need some more?

There was no use in pretending
No magic left to hear
All the music gave me
Was a craving for lite-beer
As I walked out of the arena
My ears began to ring
And money became king
man...what a ****ing great lyric!! Even the name of the guy is John

I didn't know Tom Petty, until I listen "won't back down" covered by Bon Jovi before Have a nice day for the first time. Awesome those two songs together.
