An unbelievably talented and prolific songwriter and performer. I recently watched the Netflix special on him and he really seemed like a great guy. I had always had an impression of him being a little arrogant and mean spirited, but that show showed the opposite.

Maybe one of the most underrated musicians of all time. If you ask people who their favorite musician or band is, it's almost never Tom Petty, but if you are like me he has maybe the 3rd most songs on my iPhone.

We use to have a saying at work that if a man doesnt like Tom Petty he cant be trusted

RIP to a Legend who was taken too soon as the good ones usually are.
