Rock legend Tom Petty's ten best songs


The move came after tests confirmed the lead singer had no brain function on Monday morning, hours after he suffered a devastating cardiac arrest. Petty died yesterday evening in Santa Monica surrounded by family, friends and bandmates.

Prior to his Instagram tribute, John posted to Twitter about Petty's death, writing, "I loved Tom Petty and I covered his songs because I wanted know what it felt like to fly". He was great performer, full of the light, a friend, and Ill never forget him.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers had recently completed a 40th anniversary tour.

"I'm thinking it may be the last trip around the country", Petty said to Rolling Stone of the anniversary tour past year.

Unlike much entertainment journals, TMZ - which initially reported that the rock star was hospitalized - says Petty is still alive.

In a show called "Rock Israel", MTV chronicled part of Petty's trip to the Holy Land, which the rocker described as a whirlwind. So, I reached back to something I'd read about him, in one of very few stories out about this new guy, this skinny blond rocker from Florida via Los Angeles. In addition to producing, Petty performs on two of the album's tracks, while Heartbreakers members Benmont Tench, Steve Ferrone and Mike Campbell also appear on the album. In a short tribute shared with Rolling Stone, Judge remembers Petty as "the nicest, most humble and unassuming rock star you could ever hope to meet".

Then Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers went on to become one of the most famous rock-and-roll bands in the world, with the help of the band's bass player. "To have your hero believe in you is - everybody should be so lucky to have an experience like that, and I had it".

"That's a lot of albums.a lot of music.a lot of tours.I think he touched a lot of people with his music".

Petty's stardom and his charisma aged like wine; it got brilliant, as he acknowledged in 2014 that old age wasn't going to slow him down.
