Because this day just couldn’t possibly SUCK any more (sorry for that slip of anger), rock icon, Tom Petty has died. His music was a big part of childhood and teen years, and followed me into adulthood. All I can say is he will be truly missed.

Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. There’s not some trick involved with it. It’s pure and it’s real. It moves and it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things.
