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.

Why would you answer a shiite question like that?

Maybe because I really don;t know who he is or have ever heard anything he might have sang or played, whichever he does. I looked him upon google and still don;t know who or what he was.

I did not know who he was. Admittedly, I am not an avid fan of country music. I was exposed to country music because dad liked it but I had no idea who he was. In fact, like dun, my first thought was of the race car driver and I am less a fan of race car drivers than I am of country music.

However, the Crocodile Man was one of my all time favorite celebrities.

Rock music. He was quite adamant about that in an interview once.

"We ain't no punk band, we ain't folk rock, jazz rock, or any of that be nice. Just rock, and we don't put no other name on it than that. We'd be stupid if we did," he told Rolling Stone in the '70s of his style,

If he was country I would have probably known who he was. Only rock I listened to other then country rock was CCR.

Tom Petty age 66 NOT DEAD (yet)
Heart attack ...


Sorta/kinda.
His heart DID stop, but there was a reason for it.
Coroner's report was released today.
Overdosed on opioids.

Tom Petty, the chart-topping singer and songwriter, died in October from an accidental drug overdose as a result of mixing medications that included opioids, the medical examiner-coroner for the county of Los Angeles announced on Friday, ending the mystery surrounding his sudden death last year.

The coroner, Jonathan Lucas, said that Mr. Petty’s system showed traces of the drugs fentanyl, oxycodone, temazepam, alprazolam, citalopram, acetyl fentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl.

Just another tragic ending for a talented dope head. They have it all and just can't find it.

Pretty much what I thought when I read it.
I guess fame, $$$$$$$$$$$, million dollar mansions and all the women throwing themselves at 'em just isn't enough.

Well so much for the feel good story by one treatment facility about how with their help and his sheer determination
he overcame heroin addiction and they knew Tom Petty had died sober from the influence of drugs.
