Tom Petty just kept on making good songs right thru the disco era.
He got my respect for that.
He will be missed.

Saw him live about 3 years ago.  My 2 favorite songs are "Gotta Thing About You" and "The Waiting".  66 is too young to die regardless.

Became a Shooting Star when I got my 1st guitar.
Back in '66, I was 13 and that was my fix.
Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

Danny .. I saw a food show on Austin last night.  "Big Bob".  Cheese, chili meat and guac.  It did look good.

I had a stuffed avacado green chili/beef and the extras yesterday.
   Is the Big Bob in memory of Bob Collings?

I think it's obvious that I combined Bob Taylor and Bill Collings in my mixed up thoughts.

    Matt's El Rancho has quite a reputation around here.

I certainly wonder what will now happen to the Heartbreakers, specifically Mike Campbell who has always been a hero of mine

Somehow I suspect they have saved enough to get by. Or, at least I hope they saved some.

Campbell has done many side projects over the years... he'll be fine... but no doubt he'll miss Tom and the band's unique chemistry.
