The news that Tom Petty had passed away Monday, Oct 2., due to cardiac arrest was a true “heartbreaker” to the nation. He was a rock legend that inspired so many modern artists. John Mayor tweeted upon hearing the sad news, “I loved Tom Petty and I covered his songs because I wanted to know what it felt like to fly.” Petty’s music will live on for generations to come. Inevitably, he will always make his fans feel like they can fly whenever a Petty song comes on the radio or they hum his tune. May he rest in paradise and memories of his music live on forever.
