  1. Hi all, I'm new here and located this forum to see how many others were as grieved about Tom Petty's sudden death as I was. 14 weeks.....For years now, every morning when I get ready for work, clean house, plant flowers, etc., I listen to all my music. Music has always meant a lot to me ever since I was 5 and got my 1st little transistor radio. I remember laying it on the ground where I was swinging and just singing my heart out to the Beatles' "P.S. I Love You." I am 59 now and still listen to all my music I have accumulated over the years. I've loved Tom Petty's music since I first heard "Refugee" around 1979. I saw him in concert only once, in 1995. Since his death, I have been unable to listen to any other music except Tom Petty's. I have bought numerous dvd's of his videos/concerts and cd's and by now, I know of SO many more great songs I'd never heard before. I've read Zanes' Biography of him and my journey to know this great man still continues. I have cried so much over his sudden death and this has NEVER happened to me before. I have never mourned any celebrity ever like this. I remember crying in my car in 1977 coming home from work when Elvis died but that was it. I feel a sadness I have never felt before over someone I never knew. Now I feel like I do know him and the more I learned and saw about him, the more I loved. Sorry this is so long. I just wanted to know if anyone else out there is still listening to only his music and still mournes him 3.5 months later? I love everything about him. Never realized til he passed just how much. That beautiful silky yellow hair, sky blue eyes, unique voice, his humbleness, honesty, songwriting, etc. etc..............................is hard to get over. I'm kicking myself because I never saw him in concert again. If he had lived, I would be flying somewhere the next time he played. But there will never be a next time & I still find that so very sad. He was a diamond and there will never be another like him. His father had a diamond from the start and treated him like a rock. I'm so happy he was able to find true happiness and love for the last 20 years with Dana.
