Today we celebrate the 67th Birthday of Tom Petty the only way we know how. With his music. Maybe it's a good thing that his birthday is here only thirteen days after his death because it's giving me something to celebrate. Tom Petty's death is being felt deeply because his music is a deeply woven thread in the tapestry of American music. We know the words because they're our own. Tom Petty lived a low profile for a rock star and it's only now that we are realizing just how long and solid the arch of his music is in this relatively short span of time. Happy Birthday Tom and thanks for the music.
