Watch the final two songs Tom Petty ever played live
06 October 2017, 12:45 | Myrtle Vega
Commentary: Yesterday sucked and today hurts
Even a lyrically basic song like "The Apartment Song" ("Oh yeah, I'm alright, I just feel a little lonely tonight / I'm okay, most of the time / I just feel a little lonely tonight") left me entranced with its heartland, nearly country-rock sound and paradoxically tongue-in-cheek but relatable words.
Petty and his band were inducted into the Rock "n" Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 and got to perform four of their hits at the halftime of the Super Bowl in 2008. "My doctor said 'I don't think you've been sick-I'm looking in my records-in over 17 years, since I've seen you sick with anything, '" Petty recalled. After taking a bow with the band, he took the time to sign a few autographs and disappeared into the wings for the last time. Amazingly, this album earned the group their first ever number one spot in the Billboard 200. They sang about ordinary struggles in an extraordinary way.
"It's sort of the classic theme of a lot of the work I've done", he told The Associated Press in 1989.
In one post, she wrote: "One week ago today I was watching my dad play". If you're a singer, you've got to be responsible, it's a physical thing, you have to be in shape. A statement from the performer's manager said Petty died of cardiac arrest. In the early 1980s, he was again at war with MCA, this time over the label's plans to charge extra money, a dollar higher than the standard $8.98, for his album "Hard Promises". Thanks to YouTube, fans can relive the iconic rocker's last performance.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Swift took time to reflect on Tom Petty as an artist and songwriter. From "Breakdown" to "Listen to Her Heart" to "Free Fallin" to "You Don't Know How it Feels, " Petty and his band, the Heartbreakers, produced a soundtrack of our lives for a couple of generations of music enthusiasts. Then the story changed and CBS walked back their reporting as LAPD said that they, in fact, did not have any news about Petty, nor did they have an investigative role. Awed by the chiming guitars of the Byrds, the melodic genius of the Beatles and the snarling lyrics of Dylan, he was amazed to find that other kids were feeling the same way. Simple as that sounds, it's a tremendous rush to this day to me to just make something happen. "They last longer than me, and they don't go away". "Great!' That was my whole life".
Petty dropped out of high school when he was 17 and joined Mudcrutch, a band with which he moved to Los Angeles in 1970.
Critics were pleased with their 1980 album which spawned hits like Refugee and Don't Do Me Like That. Among the many stars paying homage to the beloved and influential rocker are Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young. Millions of records sold around the world, along with a stockpile of awards, hoards of fans, and a almost endless supply of hit songs, the world is truly going to miss Tom Petty.
