Tom Petty died Monday at age 66 after suffering a cardiac arrest in his Malibu home
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are the quintessential American individualists. Petty'sTraveling Wilburys bandmate Jeff Lynne tweeted "Tom Petty was the coolest guy I ever knew". Years later, I wonder if he died - on Monday in California at age 66 - pushing that boulder uphill. In fact, she posted photos and videos from her father's final performances a couple of weeks ago. He approached his songwriting with a director's eye for a compelling narrative, explaining to Billboard previous year, "A good song should give you a lot of images, you should be able to make your own little movie in your head to a good song". Some of those are Free fallin', I Won't Back Down or American Girl.
In this context, the death of a beloved rock and roller might seem like a small thing. I Love his band, his approach, his music, his [demeanor, ] his wonderful songs [and his] exquisite recordings. "He was great performer, full of the light, a friend, and I'll never forget him". The release of his next album, Hard Promises, was delayed by a month by another dispute. "I think faith is very important just to get through life".
Petty was both a musician and obsessive fan, one who met his childhood heroes and lived out the fantasies of countless young rock lovers.
Along with his band the Heartbreakers, Petty helped weave the fabric of American rock-and-roll for decades. Lewis had interviewed Petty before and the rocker sounds relaxed, easily breaking into laughter, yet eager to discuss the future.
Later on, he developed close relationships with the likes of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and George Harrison, who looked upon Petty as their equal even though he initially was awed by their presence.
Several other big-name stars from the world of music have paid tribute to Tom - who was also known for his group Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - including fellow music legend Billy Idol, 61.
A moment now to remember one of rock music's most-beloved musicians.
The utterly surreal music video for "Don't Come Around Here No More", in which Petty plays Alice In Wonderland's Mad Hatter, is a ideal example of his sense of humour.
