    Poor Tom pulled a real Mother Teresa by dying today. He won't get nearly the news coverage he deserves.

    "I Won't Back Down" is one of those songs I listen to on repeat when I want to get in a particular mindset before an interview or meeting. Thanks for the music, Tom Petty. RIP

    Usually when one of the icons dies, the first thing I want to do is listen to some of their music. Not this one though. I probably have close to all of his catalog on LP and CD but I can't right now. Too soon.

    Yep. Looks like they were reporting his death yesterday a good 7-8 hours before he actually died. Statement from his manager:

    (CNN) Rocker Tom Petty died Monday after being rushed to a Los Angeles hospital, according to Tony Dimitriades, longtime manager of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Dimitriades confirmed Petty's death on behalf of the performer's family.

    He was 66.

    "He suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died peacefully at 8:40pm PT surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends," Dimitriades said in a statement.

    I don't know how to do this.
    Oh my gosh, that is horrible. I'm so very sorry.

    I think they kept him on life support until everyone could gather and say their goodbyes.

    So sad. RIP.

    Saw Telsa last night. During the intro of Love Song they played Breakdown. I bawled my eyes out. So much suck going on.

    I'll go look for the video on Youtube.
    Found it:

    And it was Dana Carvey as Bob Dylan.

    Damn it! I really wanted to see him live. Also, I always had this dream of me, Tom Petty, and Snoop Dog having an awesome birthday party together (we're all the same date and shared green hobby)

    This video already hurt bad enough with Prince gone.

    This performance is available for sale on iTunes. I bought it after Prince died.
