We lost Tom Petty one year ago today (Oct. 2, 2017).
We remember Tom Petty on the one year anniversary of his passing. Tom Petty was found unconscious at his home and in full cardiac arrest on the morning of Oct. 2, 2017 and was pronounced dead at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, California. Time of death was 8:40pm. Tom Petty had much much success throughout his career selling over 80 million records worldwide. He was inducted with the Heartbreakers into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. I got to see Tom Petty many times over the years including shows at the Beacon Theater in NYC, Madison Square Garden, and at Mountain Jam 2017 (Hunter Mountain, NY). Always a great rock show. He is so missed by many including me. A new Tom Petty box set called 'An American Treasure' was just released last week.
