"I'm thinking it may be the last trip around the country," says Petty. "It's very likely we'll keep playing, but will we take on 50 shows in one tour? I don't think so. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was thinking this might be the last big one. We're all on the backside of our sixties. I have a granddaughter now I'd like to see as much as I can. I don't want to spend my life on the road. This tour will take me away for four months. With a little kid, that's a lot of time."
“Tom Petty is not dead.
At 3:58 p.m. ET Monday, CBS News reported that they spoke to the Los Angeles Police Department about the 66-year-old’s condition, which Death and Taxes and several outlets then picked up, but moments ago, CBS deleted their tweet and removed any mention of their LAPD source from their news story — a story which is still live on their site and has “dead” in the headline without any correction or retraction.
Their story leads off with TMZ’s reporting from earlier this afternoon about Petty’s being hospitalized after being found unconscious and not breathing at his Malibu home.
CBS’s deletion of their tweet came after The Hollywood Reporter’s Ryan Parker spoke to a police source who said that they “have not commented” on the death of Petty.”
I'll be the boy in the corduroy pants
You be the girl at the high school dance
Run with me wherever I go
And just play dumb, whatever you know
George Harrison, Tom Petty and Ukuleles...
