In Memoriam: Tom Petty

On October 2nd, the music world lost a legend.  Tom Petty was a Rock and Roll hero.  Petty was a renaissance man.  He was not only an incredible guitar player and singer, he was also a songwriter, producer, and actor.  Throughout his career, he stood for many things like artistic control and freedom.  Petty had a number of top-charting hits, solo and with his main project, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, including “Free Fallin'”, “Won’t Back Down”, “American Girl”, and “Last Dance For Mary Jane”.  Tom Petty was a driving force in Rock and Roll, and it feels like a little piece of it has left with his passing.  But we won’t back down.

Rest in peace, Tom Petty.
