Was it finally confirmed? Because we kept getting updates on his condition ranging to deceased to critical.

I'm a bit of a roc doc junkie....anything really, obscure, never made it fringe types, punk, cock rock, Wrecking Crew/Muscle Shoals stuff, folk, grunge, etc....one of the best, most entertaining ones I have seen was on TP. It's on Netflix....runs almost 4 hours and isn't long enough. I am not a fan, but I think for anyone who is this is probably a must see... directed by Peter Bogdanovich for any film buffs who'd care

One of my favorite times seeing him was seeing him close out ACL in like 2006 or 2007 and the skies opened up and it started pouring and people started leaving but Tom just kept right on playing, so I'm standing there soaked cell phone ruined just in awe of the performance. The worse the weather was the better he was playing. It was surreal.

I took my dad to a Tom Petty tour in the mid to early 2000s. Great show. Then took my dad to Stevie Nicks show few years later and Tom Petty sang some songs with her. Cool stuff. Great time with my dad. :cool:
