He saved the 80s.

...A great epitaph, and possibly even true.

Yes he did, Andre".

The Stones and The Who were sucking, Dylan went X-tian, Zep wisely quit, and this strong rocker out of the South (Gainesville, FL), in an age where "new wave" and "heavy metal" tried to compete on biff, and then schmaltz idiotic Eagle stuff that still skunks to this day all over the goddam place, Tom Petty was all we had in the 80s.  He saved the 80s.

Tom Petty was magnificent.  Everything to the heart.  No one like Tom Petty.

it's simple... in the web page you get when you do the "Lick to enlarge" routine you will find Nico's excellent website filtered for "Tom Petty"; what you get is the index in three pages for activities of the Stones with Tom Petty, you will find a few for Norman Petty

I checked each link.  Confusing at best.  The only indication I have of Petty ever doing anything Stones related is your header photo, and that event is not even listed as far as I can tell.

We're all just rowing the boat of mondo hondo now.  Mondo.  Hondo.

I think Petty's greatest song was "Mary Jane's Last Dance."

A sweet, fantastic song.

Tom Petty's Cause of Death: Accidental Overdose

Singer had been taking several pain medications, including Fentanyl patches, to treat fractured hip and other issues

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/tom-pettys-cause-of-death-accidental-ove...

After months of speculation, a medical examiner has ruled that Tom Petty died of an accidental overdose, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner. The Hall of Fame musician had taken several pain medications, including Fentanyl, oxycodone and generic Xanax. Other medications included generic Restoril (a sleep aid) and generic Celexa (which treats depression).

The coroner's office listed Petty's official cause of death as "multisystem organ failure due to resuscitated cardiopulmonary arrest due to mixed drug toxicity," noting the singer suffered from coronary artery atherosclerosis and emphysema.


Petty had been prescribed the drugs to treat emphysema, knee issues and a fractured hip, his family said in a statement accompanying the results. Petty's coronary artery disease had been a persistent problem throughout his final tour.

"Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and, as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury," Petty's wife Dana and daughter Adria wrote in the statement. "On the day he died he was informed his hip had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his over use of medication."


Although it was reported that Petty had suffered a cardiac arrest when he died last fall, the cause of death on his death certificate read "deferred." This decision often occurs in cases where officials don't want to make a ruling until after an autopsy.

Petty was found unconscious and not breathing at his Malibu home on October 2nd. He was rushed to a hospital where he was placed on life support. Although he had a pulse, doctors found no brain activity when he arrived and the decision was made to pull life support. He died hours later.

The singer had recently completed a 40th anniversary tour with his band, the Heartbreakers. It was intended to be his "last trip around the country," though he told Rolling Stone he wasn't going to stop playing. "I need something to do, or I tend to be a nuisance around the house," he said.

Petty said he'd experimented with cocaine over the years ("[It] was never a good look," he told Men's Journal) and drinking ("I didn't like the taste or the buzz," he said). But it was in the late Nineties, when he was in his late 40s and two decades after he'd become a superstar, that he developed an addiction to heroin after a bitter divorce from his first wife. "Tried to go cold turkey, and that wouldn't work," he said in author Warren Zanes' book Petty: The Biography. "It's an ugly fucking thing." He sought out treatment for his addiction and remarried in 2001.


"Using heroin went against my grain," Petty said in the book. "I didn't want to be enslaved to anything. So I was always trying to figure out how to do less, and then that wouldn't work. Tried to go cold turkey, and that wouldn't work. It's an ugly fucking thing."

Since his death, several artists have paid tribute to Petty onstage. Country artist Jason Aldean dedicated some of his time as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live to sing "I Won't Back Down." Bob Dylan performed Petty's "Learning to Fly" at a concert in Broomfield, Colorado. And Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris and others sang "Refugee" at a benefit show in Seattle. Petty's Greatest Hits album subsequently made it to the Number Two spot on the Billboard chart after his death.

He was laid to rest on October 16th at a private service in Pacific Palisades, California.

Petty's family said they hope the musician's death leads to a broader understanding of the opioid crisis. "As a family, we recognize this report may spark a further discussion on the opioid crisis and we feel that it is a healthy and necessary discussion and we hope in some way this report can save lives," they wrote. "Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications."


Full Statement from Dana and Adria Petty

Our family sat together this morning with the medical examiner – coroner’s office and we were informed of their final analysis that Tom Petty passed away due to an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications.

Unfortunately Tom’s body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems and most significantly a fractured hip.

Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and, as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury.

On the day he died he was informed his hip had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his over use of medication.

We knew before the report was shared with us that he was prescribed various pain medications for a multitude of issues including fentanyl patches and we feel confident that this was, as the coroner found, an unfortunate accident.

As a family we recognize this report may spark a further discussion on the opioid crisis and we feel that it is a healthy and necessary discussion and we hope in some way this report can save lives. Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications.

On a positive note we now know for certain he went painlessly and beautifully exhausted after doing what he loved the most, for one last time, performing live with his unmatchable rock band for his loyal fans on the biggest tour of his 40 plus year career. He was extremely proud of that achievement in the days before he passed.

We continue to mourn with you and marvel at Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers incredible positive impact on music and the world. And we thank you all for your love and support over the last months.

Thank you also for respecting the memory of a man who was truly great during his time on this planet both publicly and privately.

We would be grateful if you could respect the privacy of the entire Heartbreaker family during this difficult time.

Dana Petty and Adria Petty

Fentanyl also played a role in the death of Prince and Lil Peep.

It appears Tom Petty was touring with a fractured and/or broken hip...which I understand is extremely painful, and partially explains  why he was consuming these RX's.

Very very sad...Thank you for the music Mr. Petty...RIP.

Maybe you're jamming with Roy Orbison and George Harrison  as I write this.

I was at a liquor store tonight and Free Fallin' started playing on the radio. The line "Gonna leave this world for awhile" sounds especially poignant now.

I wasn't the only one enjoying the song. There was a young woman, probably just past the legal age, singing along in a low voice. I remember that song from when I was ypung:; I guess she will too.
