    Well, 3/5 of the Travelling Willbury's are now gone(Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Tom Petty) leaving Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynn as the only surviving members.

    It must be true, the BBC morning report said he's gone.

    So did CNN and other news sources. I think it was a pull the plug situation and he wasn't dead when the story first broke, and he died shortly after. It's not like soap operas, where they pull the plug and the guy dies instantly. Sometimes it takes a little time for the body to totally shut down after attempts have been made to keep it going.

    Hey, I sincerely apologize for this thread and the original erroneous reporting. In my defense, EVERY major news site reported it.

    Petty was not my favorite artist, but in the top 50 at the very least. His 3 1/2 hour concert that I witnessed at a small theater in Chicago about 10 years ago was one of the best I've ever seen. And inexpensive.

    RIP, Tom.

    Amen. It's always hard to say that when someone passes, but we need to be honest. From first hand experience, it has to be dealt with before we can move on ourselves.
