    Mike and Benmont is you read this, my heart goes out to you guys.  As broken hearted as I am as a fan I can't imagine what you are feeling. Thank you for taking the time to share your words with fans. I love you guys and always will.  ❤️  Thank goodness for the music!  It will always be with us!

    YOUR CONDOLENCES HAVE BEEN A LIFE SAVER FOR ME. THIS HAS BEEN SO SURPRISING AND DEVASTATING FOR ME AND THE BAND AS I KNOW IT HAS BEEN FOR YOU. IT WILL TAKE A LONG TIME BEFORE I GET OVER THIS. I WILL CARRY ON FOR MYSELF AND ALL OF YOU WHO LOVE THE MUSIC. I FEEL YOUR LOVE AND AM FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT ALL THESE YEARS. REMEMBER, WITHOUT YOU, ALL OF OUR DEVOTED FANS, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS. TOM WILL ALWAYS BE HERE ON MY RIGHT SHOULDER URGING ME ON TO KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE AND INSPIRING ME WITH HIS SPIRIT. HE IS A ONE OF A KIND AND I WILL BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR THE YEARS WE RODE TOGETHER AND THE SONGS WE WROTE TOGETHER. BLESS YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

    HEY Y’ALL.
    I’M SURE I DON’T NEED, NOR DO I REALLY KNOW HOW, TO TELL YOU HOW AWFUL THESE PAST WEEKS HAVE BEEN. I KNOW YOU ALL FEEL IT TOO.
    WHAT I DO WANT TO TELL YOU IS HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE YOUR KINDNESS & SUPPORT. I’VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR FROM & SPEAK WITH MANY OF YOU, BOTH IN PERSON IN LOS ANGELES & NEW YORK, AND THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA. YOU HAVE BEEN A GREAT SOURCE OF COMFORT.
    THIS BAND, AND THE EXTENDED FAMILY TOM GATHERED AROUND HIM, IS A STRONG & LOVING GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND WE’RE ALL VERY TIGHT, AND ALL LEANING ON EACH OTHER. LOVE WILL CERTAINLY SEE US ALL THROUGH THIS.
    FOR ME, I JUST WANT TO DO WHAT I’VE DONE SINCE I WAS EIGHTEEN OR NINETEEN YEARS OLD: TAKE WHAT I’VE LEARNED OVER THESE YEARS, FROM TOM, ABOUT PERSISTENCE, PURSUIT OF & INSISTENCE ON ARTISTIC EXCELLENCE, AND A CERTAIN KIND OF PERSONAL INTEGRITY, AND CONTINUE TO APPLY IT GOING FORWARD, IN WHATEVER “FORWARD” MIGHT BE. MAYBE EACH OF US, OF YOU, CAN DO THE SAME.
    AND, OF COURSE, NEVER FORGET TO TURN UP TO TEN AND LET THAT SUCKER BLAST.
    PEACE & LOVE TO YOU AND YOURS, 
    ‐ BENMONT

    That's why I registered too, so I can have others to talk to about him.  Tom was only three years older than me.  I grew up with him. He wasn't supposed to die this young, and it just reminds me of my own mortality.
    I can't get the song Straight Into Darkness out of my mind - day and night it's playing over and over.

    You aren't alone, Lorra. I will never claim to have ever been "the biggest" TP or Heartbreaker fan, but I have always been a fan nonetheless. You never realize just how much somebody means to you, or has impacted or influenced your life sometimes until, sadly, they are no longer here. There's a core selection of songs that I always listen to- some on a daily basis; I have had Free Fallin on my Spotify playlist for ages and whenever it plays at work, I blast it and everybody chimes in and sings along. We do the same with Don't Stop Believin'  - anyway, after hearing the news, I began listening to some other songs, many I haven't heard for years. Those songs brought me back to my childhood and why I fell in love with TPATH in the first place. I even discovered a few new favorites.

    Anyhow, I also registered just to have some place to come to talk to others. In a former life, I was a graphic designer, so I may post some tribute work when the time is right. It's the least I can do, for all that he gave to us over the years. Thinking of Dana, Adria, AnnaKim, and the rest of Tom's family and friends- my thoughts and prayers go out to them during this difficult time. And to everyone else, take care... and of course, Tom, you beautiful, gentle soul- may you rest easy, now. Thank you so much for everything 

    People keep sharing quotes that they are reminded of- I love the one from Almost Famous. That's such a great movie  As a lifelong Michael Jackson fan (another great musician gone way too soon and far too suddenly), I am reminded of this quote which he said and I think fits perfectly: "When you want to be close to me, listen to the music. The love is stored there and will never die."

    I registered here just so I could gush about this man and vent my grief where it will be understood.  His music got me through the toughest months of my life.  I'm really finding it hard to shake his death off.  I would not be considered a die-hard fan.  Never even saw him in concert.  But there is something about him and his music. And Mike's guitar just gets to me.
     
    Anyway, here I am.  We've lost another great who won't be replaced any time soon.
