Tom Petty

Several reliable news outlets said that Tom Petty had been taken off of life support after being found in cardiac arrest. Other outlets are now walking that report back, saying that the singer is clinging to life. If the latter reports are true, I pray for his survival.

On Wednesday, a friend and I were talking about Petty, agreeing that his was the best Super Bowl show ever. Just last week, an LP he produced for Chris Hilman was released.

Petty took the music of my generation and reinvented it, creating music that was both new and familiar at the same time. He is one of the greats.
