There was initial confusion when Tom Petty had a cardiac arrest and was reported to have died. For a while, some sites said there was a mistake and he was still alive. Now, it seems universally reported that he has indeed passed. 

Tom Petty wrote great honest rock songs with memorable melodies. Here are a few videos to enjoy.

What is strange to me, as a songwriter, is how people like Tom Petty seem to crack the song writing code, writing several new iconic tunes in their lifetimes that will reverberate through the ages. 

Rest In Peace, Tom.
