Rest in peace,
Tom Petty

Thank you for the amazing music you've given us for over 40 years. It truly has been the soundtrack of our lives. For over a year now, Somewhat Petty has been playing Tom's music. It never gets old... it makes us feel like we did when we first heard it. We find ourselves in the stories and get lost in the melodies. The people we play for love it just as much as we do. Most of the songs we play, they sing right along with us... it's amazing, really it is! As much as there is a void in our lives now, I can't even imagine the hole left in the hearts of his family, bandmates, and friends. Our thoughts and prayers and love go out to them. Tom, you will be missed forever. We love you.
