Tom Petty, Rock Iconoclast Who Led the Heartbreakers, Dead at 66

"It's shocking, crushing news," Petty's friend and Traveling Wilburys bandmate Bob Dylan tells Rolling Stone in a statement. "I thought the world of Tom. He was a great performer, full of the light, a friend, and I'll never forget him."

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers recently completed a summer tour last Monday with three nights at the Hollywood Bowl.

Despite his lifetime on rock's A-list, Petty didn't actually notch his first No. 1 album until 2014's Hypnotic Eye. Speaking to Billboard around the time of that release, Petty said, "The only good thing about getting older is you get smart enough to avoid unnecessary problems. You know what's worth spending time on and what's not. If I had known that at 20, life would have been so much easier, but you have to experience all these things so you figure out how to find your way through the woods."

Tom Petty, a songwriter who melded California rock with a deep, stubborn Southern heritage, died on Monday after suffering cardiac arrest.

Mr. Petty's songs were staples of FM rock radio through decades, and with hits like "Refugee," "Don't Come Around Here No More," "Free Fallin'" and "Into the Great Wide Open," Mr. Petty sold millions of albums and headlined arenas and festivals well into 2017. He played the Super Bowl halftime show in 2008 and entered the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. But his songs stayed down-to-earth, with sturdy guitar riffs carrying lyrics that spoke for underdogs and ornery outcasts.

"Career-long interest in defending artists' rights"

Petty was outspoken in his protection of the rights of artists, taking issue with record companies on a number of occasions about what he believed to be unjust practices. Earlier this year he was named MusiCares person of the year for his "career-long interest in defending artists' rights" as well as for his charitable work with homeless people in Los Angeles.

Er sang über Themen, die weh tun

Tom Petty war ein intelligenter, hochsensibler Songwriter, der sich in die Mainstream-Hitparaden spielte. Seine besten Lieder gehören heute zum amerikanischen Kanon.

Das gebrochene Herz

Dass man bei Petty so rasch ins Aufzählen seiner Kollegen kommt, hat mehrere Gründe: seine eigene Bescheidenheit, sein Talent zur Kooperation und zur Grosszügigkeit, dann aber auch die direkten Einflüsse auf sein Gitarrenspiel und seinen Gesang. Letzterer war in seiner nasalen Insistenz ebenso stark von John Lennon wie von Bob Dylan geprägt, und auf der Gitarre orientierte er sich am schimmernden Klang von George Harrison und dem Byrds-Sänger Roger McGuinn; er war also ein Songwriter unter Einfluss, ein Vertreter des sogenannten Classic Rock.
