101X Artists Remember Tom Petty, And A TP & The HBs Playlist
Tom Petty was never at the center of what 101X does, but he was at the center of my musical upbringing--also that of some of the station's favorite artists. Some notes from Twitter, from Young The Giant, Kings Of Leon's Nathan Followill, and Cage the Elephant:
Thank you @tompetty for showing us how elegant/simple songwriting can be when it's done right. Rest In Peace— Young the Giant (@youngthegiant) October 2, 2017
Just got off of the stage at Red Rocks and thought of Tom Petty the whole show. Rest In Peace— nathan followill (@doctorfollowill) October 3, 2017
And Jack White's Third Man records touched on Tom Petty's death and the tragedy in Las Vegas, with this:
So saddened to hear of @tompetty passing. He's was such sweet person to us and a once in a lifetime artist.— Cage The Elephant (@CageTheElephant) October 2, 2017
Also, check out some of my personal Petty faves below--dating all the way back to the pictured 1976 self-titled debut--along with some of his biggest hits, as you remember a rock legend.
We've lost music lovers & music makers today. We don’t know how to cope, so we continue to work, with broken hearts, in the name of music.— Third Man Records (@thirdmanrecords) October 2, 2017
