I still get sad thinking about Tom Petty’s death a year ago today. Cardiac arrest from an accidental overdose of prescription pain killers. So senseless. He was easily one of my favorite rock and rollers of the last 35 years. My collection has always had a lot of Tom Petty albums, and I can’t think of a bad album or song that he ever recorded. I always thought of him as your basic, old school rocker. But boy did he have a knack for putting out great songs. I miss new music from Tom petty, and so today a salute to the American Boy that passed away a year ago today.
