RIP Tom Petty

Yesterday I heard the terrible news that Tom Petty had passed away at age 66.  He certainly made a tremendous contribution to rock music since the late 1970s.  Back in 1986, I saw him back up Bob Dylan at Madison Square Garden.

Tom Petty and Bob Dylan's paths crossed again in the late 1980s when they played together as the Traveling Wilburys.  One of my favorites was End of the Line as seen above.  It is sad that 3 of the 5 members of that supergroup have passed away.  Jeff Lynne and Bob Dylan are the only survivors.

RIP Tom.
