it really was. He was an odd man but incredibly talented and his songs were universal.
Sad, sad, sad.
And that video- he and George dead, Roy Orbison already dead when they made it. Well. We have the music. For that I am grateful.
Our Florida boy.

Yes. And yes.
Really sad he's gone. I Won't Back Down used to be my daughter's anthem every morning before school. We'd turn it up loud.
There are so many times I've thought of his song "The Waiting Is The Hardest Part," and it's so true. He wrote gentle anthems, didn't he?
I was doing OK until Petty sang, "...happy to be alive", then I lost it. :(
Thank you, Ms Moon.......... oh so sad he is gone..... But......... his music and his truth will live in our hearts forever and I will hum and sing and smile, thinking of the joy he has brought me and will continue to bringSusan M
Me too, Susan. Me too.
