RIP Rock Legend Tom Petty

By Touché

As if this day couldn’t have gotten any worse, the universe hands us its beer. Rock legend Tom Petty passed away today after being found in full cardic arrest earlier this morning. He was immediately rushed to the hospital, but when doctors could detect no brain function, his family decided to withdraw life support. This musical genius has given us lasting songs that will be loved and cherished forevermore. It truly is a sad day for music history. Tom Petty will go down as one of the music greats.

Tom Petty spoke of this moment in his song, “I wanna free fall, out into nothin’, gonna leave this world for awhile. I’m free, free fallin’.” You will be missed while you leave this world for awhile.

Mr. Tom Petty, you are now free to play music with all the rock gods that went before you, until your heart is content. Freedom is now truly yours.

“I’m learning to fly – But I ain’t got wings – Coming down – Is the hardest thing.” He has wings now and is learning how to fly with them.

He never did back down. We thank you for that. Your music invoked so much change for the better. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world.

Celebs are responding to this detrimental news via Twitter.

This day is too much to take in all at once.

Rock N Roll will forever be indebted to Tom Petty.

The world is truly thankful for Tom Petty.

Our sentiment exactly, “Noooo.”

Today is just a heartbreaking day all around.

“So let’s get to the point – let’s roll another joint -Let’s head on down the road – There’s somewhere I gotta go – And you don’t know how it feels – No, you don’t know how it feels to be me.”

We will never know what it feels like to be you. We hope we have been able to show our appreciation for your gift that you so generously shares with us. You will be forever remembered as a rock legend. Today marks the end of an era.

“But not me baby, I’ve got you to save me, Oh yer so bad, best thing I ever had, In a world gone mad, yer so bad”

This is a mad world, especially now that Tom Petty is gone. Rest in peace Tom Petty, rest in peace.

Sarcasm, satire, and snark just seem to spew from my being. I may not be everyone's cup of tea, but who can refuse coffee? ?
