    I heard Tom Petty died today after suffering a cardiac arrest. I find the news
    sad and unexpected. I liked a lot of his music, including his involvement with
    the Traveling Wilburys. RIP Tom Petty.

    News reports here said he was fighting for life after a heart attack, but I haven't heard his death announced yet, though from what I've heard, that's likely any time.

    News sites (at least in the US) may have reported his death prematurely. I first saw some stories saying he had died, and after that I had seen some reports that he was still clinging to life.

    I remember the Tom Petty video 'You Got Lucky' back in the '80's when MTV played music videos. I thought the video was so cool back then with the video games, futuristic car and the small radio (boom box). The video/music was definitely part of the synth/sci-fi/end-of-the-world type genre leading right into 'Back to the Future', 'damnation alley' and 'The Road Warrior' movies of the time. His music was always unique and his songs definitely stand the test of time...

    I haven't seen the video for that, but I've heard that song on the radio plenty of times.
