My wife told me this last night, but I'm ashamed to say I'd never heard of him. He must have been quite popular judging from the number of news articles I saw subsequently. RIP

Yes. He was a musician, most notably from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. As a child I had nightmares of him. He was always in dark rooms that I would get pulled into. Weird, I know.

Man, he was all over the place during my high school and college years, with the Heartbreakers, as a solo artist, and with the Traveling Wilburys. I don't blame you for having nightmares about him, as he was even a little creepy-looking before he started cultivating that image in his videos!

I was very saddened by this news, rarely do I really get upset when a celebrity dies. But I loved Tom Petty and his music and I still miss David Bowie massively and also "the day the music died" for me was when Jimi Hendrix died.

I love this!
