Yesterday got sadder. I was already mourning the Las Vegas Massacre when I heard that legendary rocker, Tom Petty had a heart attack and was on life support then was taken off life support due to no brain activity. He was only age 66. I had a crush on him as a teen. He not only sang his own music. He did this duet with Stevie Nicks. It is one of those songs that I love that takes me back to my College days in the 1980s.

Very sad to hear this news. I wonder why so many musicians die young?

@LeaPea2417 I think that's the biggest fear I have because you get into the mind of world and then it's very hard not to become a part of it.

I felt the same. It was... no... not now... please... and it was like... why? He wasn't that old.

I agree, age 66 is not old. As a kid, I thought it sounded old, but as I am now in my 50s, that age is not old at all.

@LeaPea2417 In 1940 okay... you were 'old' at 40. Now, people live to 80 without surprise.
