The following was posted on the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers official Facebook page by his manager:

Such a huge fan of his, as I'd imagine many of you are. Such an awful day today.

Just saw it myself.

Damn I hate it.

Every time I hear a Tom Petty tune, it takes me back to my childhood and trips with my ( now deceased ) father.

Oh how I wish I wasn't such a penny pincher!!!!

I had a chance to see him this last April and I didn't go because I didn't want to spend money on myself.


Just like Leonard Nimoy, I could've met him at a convention and I didn't go.

When will I learn it's only money!!!!

In the film 'George Harrison: Living in the Material World,' there's a part where Tom Petty is telling a story of when Roy Orbison died. George phoned Tom and asked him, "Aren't you glad it wasn't you?" (about which Tom seemed to express some surprise as to why he would say such a thing)

(George knows y'know!)

I am never going to forget this guy.

His music rocks and his wisdom on King of the Hill will never be forgotten.

I remember the Traveling Wilburys on vinyl, that's turning back the clock.

I just saw a piece on the news about Tom petty and the woman said that he addressed issues such as Refugees in his song.

Has she ever listened to that song, it had nothing to do with real refugees, it had to do with people leaving home because of a bad relationship either with their parents or mate. I grew up with that song, I listened to it many hundreds of times. I had the record and eight track. Why are they trying to make his song into a political weapon?

I thought the intended content of the song was pretty good for the days. Nothing really to do with real refugees.

I guess part of the song does say "You believe what you want to believe" I guess MSM took that as a go ahead to interpret it anyway they want to.

Just a Rant, I hate when someone makes something seem like something it isn't.
