With all the horrible terrible things in the news from Las Vagas I think the passing of legend Tom Petty may go unnoticed, so here's a video

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=s5BJXwNeKsQ


Local Classic Rock station, reports he was taken off life support, and showed no brain activity.  

End of the Line.   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cwqhdRs4jyA

On my way home today, they said on the radio (WCCO - CBS affiliate) that he had passed. They had since walked that back, but supposedly he has been taken off support with no detectable brain activity... not likely to live through the day.

The local classic rock station has been playing non-stop Petty since about 4pm this afternoon.

No 66 is too soon.

God bless him not the way to go, shame no one was with him to call 911.

Anyone of age or condition should have a wrist monitor linked to an ambulance service,
one that is predetermined to be close to the persons home. Instant care can be had within
enough time to avoid a oxygen starved brain. Any abnormal heart rate can have a 1st responder
calling to check up on the persons condition and determine the next step. Wrist monitor linked to
WiFi to warn family via cell phone alert with gps location.

Secondly a defibrillator device should be in the house in case family or friend can help.

Case in point a man had a seizure in bed suffocated in his pillow while the spouse slept unknowingly
without waking up till the next morning. Had the person been wearing a wrist monitor with a audible
alarm the loss of life would / could have been avoided.

for those who live passionately, it is always early to leave ...

My respect and my accompaniment for who was part of a beautiful music that we listened to and shared with friends .... yes also in this latitude.

It didn't go unnoticed here. I think my favorite project he was involved in was "The Traveling Wilburys," especially the first album with Roy Orbison. He and Bob Dylan and George Harrison all said they were embarrassed to sing in front of Roy who's voice was so beautiful compared to theirs

Besides the Wilburys I have a lot of his other albums too... or CDs, but I still call them albums. Yesterday was bad enough before I learned of Tom Petty's death. He looked good lately too, not the Heroin Sheek that had defined his earlier appearance.

When I got my ankles tangled in my steel stooge lines flying the Beginner pattern, I added the "Wilbury Twist" to that video. I got a temporary copyright infraction, but it soon was cleared. The Hokey Pokey followed it for the rest of the flight. "The Twist" always made me laugh.

It's only worth watching with a big screen or you can't see me trying to kick the lines loose.

Rest In Peace, Tom

At my age ....and I know many here on CEF can relate

We have lost a LOT of popular and very talented folks in the last many years--- and as time marches forward we will loose a lot more, and faster

I personally never developed any Hero worship for any celebrity ----but there were many performers I like/love their work

What we lose when a talented music artist dies young, is all the potential future great songs and sounds.....

Fortunately, if we loved his or her craft, we can have a permanent collection of the Talent

I was not a great fan of Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers....BUT I did think the 2008 Super Bowl Half time show was one of the more memorable Half time shows... that I mostly now do NOT like


RIP TP
