Watching TV last night a show came on with a woman wearing a Petty concert shirt.

Made me think of the times I saw him in concert and today he's gone, seems unreal.

His shows were consistently good.

We saw him at his last concert at the Garden. Our friends made fun of my girlfriend and I for buying shirts there, but now I'm really glad we paid the crazy prices for them.

The 24 hour doom cycle is too much. He is still alive but everyone has him dead and buried. CBS retracted the story. He may be in tough shape but he isn't worm food just yet.

If he was down long enough that they found no brain activity, then it's a matter of him being on full mechanical life support. We're likely just waiting for family to show up before the announcement at this point.

I read somewhere he has a DNR so it's only a matter of time until family has it enforced.

Bummer. Been reprising a lot of his stuff lately.

apparently he's still clinging life even though the news outlets have said he's already dead

Non ya, ma
Keith Richards.........still here.
every time we loose a musician I think about this guy. If they ever invent a time machine I want to go back to the party where he snorted his father's ashes, must of been one hell of a party. He has outlived all life expectations.

Netflix has (or had) an awesome documentary on his career. He has some classic songs. Highly recommend watching it. It is long. Somewhere like 4 hours, but worth it.
