Musician/singer. Had a band, 'Tom Petty and The Heart Breakers". Also provided the voice of the boyfriend "Lucky", of the character "Lou-Anne" on the 'King Of The Hill' cartoon. His singing voice was similar to Bob Dylan.

Yes sir, especially the great state of Florida. I still enjoy the story about how he received guitar lessons from Don Felder. Some amazing musicians came from Gainesville around that time

And here's a song that isn't well known, and could be played a little more these days.. At the time, it also held the record for the song that was written, recorded and released in the shortest amount of time (under 24 hrs IIRC)

Tom Petty age 66 NOT DEAD (yet)
Heart attack and CBS broke the story that he died... it went national.
About 4 pm CBS retracted the story, taken off life support with do not resuscitate order, condition grave and recovery
is not expected.
