If you know me, you know how much I love Tom Petty. Monday was already a roller coaster ride with the mass shootings in Las Vegas. And then I came home this afternoon to learn that Tom Petty was found unresponsive after a heart attack. Then the news said he was dead. Then reports said he was alive. And now it’s official.
Tom Petty was my teenage crush. I had posters on my wall. I stayed up late at night to watch the Heartbreakers perform on shows like The Midnight Special and Friday’s.
I also wanted to dress like Tom Petty. Such unique, effortless style. Pictured up top is an embroidered sweatshirt I’ve been working on since the summer.
I was fortunate enough to see Tom Petty perform three times, most recently in July. Mr Andrew bought me tickets for my birthday. Last night, he made me a playlist of my favourite Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tunes and we sang along and slow danced.
