I’ve been away for awhile due to mostly disgust and apathy at how we live and treat each other. That’s a good enough reason to me. But I’ve missed out on a lot of important things. Tom Petty dies of cardiac arrest on October 2nd,

Thomas Earl “Tom” Petty (born October 20, 1950) was an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He was the frontman of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and a member of Mudcrutch. He was also a member of the supergroup.You know the one. It had Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, and George Harrison. How bout those songs and harmonies? the Traveling Wilburys under the pseudonym of Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr. He has recorded a number of hit singles, many of which remain heavily played on adult contemporary and classic rock radio. Likewise, his music, most notably his hits, have become increasingly popular among younger generations as he continues to host sold out shows in his recent tour dates. Yo me he was mo frills rock and roll and he really showed respect for his fans.

Here is my favorite song, American Girl, although now I always associate it with Silence Of The Lambs. Thanks skinman! R.I.P.
