I love Tom Petty.  It's such a shame the way he went too.  It was so messed up.  I have been musing over many seeing as this was the week of the anniversary of John's murder.  So I dug out my Travelling Wilburys which has been blasting from my car.  Hard to realise that George, Roy and now Tom are gone.

I know, The Travelling Willburys. Who is left? Jeff Lynn and Bob Dylan? Am I correct? (I am too lazy to look it up). So sad, and so young.

We lost Gord Downy today, a Canadian singer (famous here) in a band called The Tragically Hip. They never made it big in the States, though. He was 53. Died of brain cancer. So sad.

Yes Jeff and Bob are left, but lets not forget Jim Keltner the drummer, who is associated with many big names and used in the Beatles post split tiffs, especially by George and Ringo towards Paul.  I've been a big Jeff Lynn fan since I can remember.  I saw ELO live at Wembley many moons ago and have all of their albums.  They certainly were a visual feast as well.  Jeff is such a talented musician with a terrific sense of humour.  Who else would release an album that at the end of the last track on side one would tell you to 'please turn me over' lol.

We at least have had a better year than last in terms of sudden deaths.  I feel last year was truly exceptional with Bowie, Prince and George Michael, who shocked me the most.  Last year I feared turning on the news in case there was yet another announcement.

I always think of Jeff Lynn performing "Give Me Love" at the "Concert for George" Harrison, how well he did it, with so much feeling for George, remembering him.  And Randy Newman singing "I love my E.L.O." The Traveling Wilburies were a cool band, sounded real good. As you'd expect with all their combined talents, of course. I was also upset by the passing of Leon Russell, Leonard Cohen and The Eagles guy. I'm probably going to attend "The Music of Michael Jackson" presented at the local university's main theater Oct. 27, it'll probably get me up "twerking" (laughs). It's by a crackerjack touring company show. Michael had right many songs I like. Tom Petty has some tuff songs. Maybe he's got a lot in his personal archives that could be released, like the estate of Prince is doing with much of his unreleased music.
