Tom Petty Music Sales Surge 6216 Percent

Commentary: Yesterday sucked and today hurts Watch the final two songs Tom Petty ever played live

Petty's musical exploration of the seamier recesses of the American dream sadly ended Monday with his death at age 66, capping a career that soared - even if, as he put it in "Learning to Fly": "I ain't got wings". In 2014, after releasing a new album with his band, the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty talked with NPR's Melissa Block. Or maybe - and pity your soul - you first heard 1976's "American Girl" more recently, once boomer politicians made a habit of pumping it on the campaign trail.

Confusion about Petty's death started early Monday when CBS News posted an obituary of the singer, citing a source from the Los Angeles Police Department, but the singer was still alive, ABC News reported. He was a writer and craftsman who added scores of songs to rock's lexicon.

Cash was on the backside of a late-career resurgence when he recorded Petty's "I Won't Back Down" for his American III: Solitary Man album in 2000.

"I wanna thank you for 40 years of a really great time", Petty told the crowd before beginning the song. I mean, if I think about it very long, it frightens me. I.

Representatives for the singer did not return calls for comment or confirmation on Petty's condition.

Tom Petty died just a week after the final concert on his 40th anniversary tour with the Heartbreakers.

His music is not only proper, spirit-lifting rock, it is comforting and honest too, and the meaning behind much of it - "I Won't Back Down" springs to mind - seems as important now as ever.

Petty and his band were inducted into the Rock "n" Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 and got to perform four of their hits at the halftime of the Super Bowl in 2008.

Later on, he developed close relationships with the likes of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and George Harrison, who looked upon Petty as their equal even though he initially was awed by their presence. "With a little kid, that's a lot of time". He asked if I was interested, and I always say yes. "Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are America's band".

"We are conducting an inquiry into the death", a Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner office spokesman said on Tuesday, per The Wrap.
