Tom Petty is dead at age 66. This isn’t my favorite Tom Petty song — “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” is, but that video strikes me as too macabre for this moment, so I’m posting this one instead:
Tom Petty was a fellow Floridian. He shared some interesting thoughts on the Confederate flag in a 2015 Rolling Stone interview here. He seemed like a pretty good guy. Rock on, Tom.
ETA: CBS News has since retracted their story that Tom Petty died. New reports say he’s hospitalized and not expected to survive. Sorry for passing along bogus info.
