What an bad 24 hours for rock "n" roll.

Veteran rocker Tom Petty, best known for hits such as "Free Fallin'" and "American Girl", died on Monday after he was found unconscious and in cardiac arrest, his manager said.

Bruce Springsteen has paid tribute to his "long lost brother" Tom Petty. "He peacefully died 8:40 p.m. PST surrounded by family, bandmates and friends".

Petty and The Heartbreakers embarked on a 40th anniversary tour of the United States this year and last played three dates in late September at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

In this context, the death of a beloved rock and roller might seem like a small thing. Knowing he's gone is enough to buckle your knees. Or maybe hearing the news about Tom Petty was what finally made your stoic defenses crumble and got the tears flowing.

"Tom Petty is an American Icon because his heart has always put human rights first".


His most iconic singles are lean and unpretentious, and airtight in their perfection.

Even a lyrically basic song like "The Apartment Song" ("Oh yeah, I'm alright, I just feel a little lonely tonight / I'm okay, most of the time / I just feel a little lonely tonight") left me entranced with its heartland, nearly country-rock sound and paradoxically tongue-in-cheek but relatable words. Indeed, Petty wrote short, concise songs that AM/FM radio picked up in the late '70s and '80s, providing millions of Americans a soundtrack for the road.

"I'm not extremely political". I just look at it like, you know, between the speakers when you come in, there's a blank canvas.

We had a mutual friend who recommended me for the directing job. I Love his band, his approach, his music, his [demeanor, ] his wonderful songs [and his] exquisite recordings. I've never seen such anger.

"Down here on E Street, we're devastated and heartbroken over the death of Tom Petty". Produced by documentarian Paul Ingles, Tom Petty - Live and Kicking It: An Appreciation is a music-intensive hour of live performances.

"We're really just whirl-winding through here, so it would be hard to say I have any impression of the people", he said during a private interview, probably backstage between shows.
