Really sad news. This world just keeps getting suckier and suckier.

RIP Tom, you gave us some great music.

I always enjoyed his work. Rock on, Tom, rock on.

Not a big fan of rock, but liked the songs I did hear.

Not a big fan, but way too young….

Rest easy Tom.

Not a single bad album to his name, and a truly great live performer. This is such bad news.

A truly wonderful songwriter, with simple rugged approach to rock and roll. Got to see him in August with my sons. This is a terrible loss.

Yeah, this really sucks, big, big fan of his, saw him multiple times in concert.

Always a humble person, really appreciated the crowd support and reactions at his concerts.

Hit after hit, too many to list.

66 is way too young, RIP Tom.

Okay not yet dead but just mostly dead.

Appears that he is on Life Support at the moment.

Some really great hits and I liked his part in The Postman. RIP!

In "The Postman",playing the "mayor" of "Bridge City" on the site of a hydroelectric dam,and Kevin Costner says he thinks he recognized him,saying he was "famous',and Petty replies ,"Well,maybe I was once…." Rest easy,bro,and thanks.
