Local musician remembers rocker Tom Petty

The world woke up to the sad news that veteran singer Tom Petty, who had suffered a cardiac arrest, had died at the UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, on Monday night. Forgive me if this seems like an impossibly tall order.

Dimitriades said Petty died at 8:40 p.m. His songs are in the atmosphere. In 2002, he and his band reached a unique place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

His most recent album, 2014's Hypnotic Eye, was the first Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers to top the charts in the U.S.

"The amount of pain you feel will one day be the amount of joy you experience", she wrote.

She rounded out her social media tributes with some photos of Petty in his heyday, memorializing her father as "a bad ass motherfucker" and "magical human" who permanently altered the course of American music. He was great performer, full of the light, a friend, and Ill never forget him.

"That's my favorite Tom Petty song", he explained. Found unconscious in his home after suffering cardiac arrest, he was rushed to the hospital, where medics were unable to revive him; taken off life support, he was initially reported to have passed by a variety of outlets, but that news proved premature.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers struck major success worldwide.

"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". I knew him from 1978 when the Heartbreakers were starting to break.

"Goodnight baby, sleep tight my love / May God watch over you from above / Tomorrow I'm working what would I do / I'd be lost and lonely if not for you / So close your eyes / We're alright for now".

Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams took to Twitter to share an image of Petty with the caption: "You couldn't have left more dreams here for us".

For more than 50 years gold says Petty inspired artists like himself, beating to the tune of his own drum. "I just was a big fan". He says that Petty was surrounded by his family, friends, and bandmates.
