I'm getting so old... A favorite of mine, for sure. But his music lives on!

I would have to be honest... he was not one of my favorite performers.

When my son heard he died, he couldn't place his face; so I started playing him some Tom Petty songs. And there was one hit; after another; after another..... I might argue one of the top American performers in history.

He produced a treasure chest of really great music.

He was also a fireball; fighting back against the record producers and their greed.

I especially like him as "Lucky" on King of The Hill.

He will be missed.
