Rocker Tom Petty’s persona dead at 66

Be the 1st to vote.

I wish they timed this death better – if it’s not as we are told. Vegas owns the media right now, so this amazing rocker deserved a few days of his own.

Tom Petty, an old-fashioned rock superstar and everyman who drew upon the Byrds, the Beatles and other bands he worshipped as a boy and produced new classics such as Free Fallin,’ Refugee and American Girl, has died. He was 66.

I am a musicologist too – listening to endless hours in the 70s to now.

I didn’t realise (until I looked now) the amazing depth of Petty’s library. I hope it gets the kick it deserves.

Too many coincidences to note on this one, but fitting that the lead Heartbreaker dies of a heart attack.

or not, amazing music. RIP Tommy Petty, persona.

    Leaving the world stage in 2020, suddenly aged 56 or 53, allegedly on July 27 with no disclosed cause…announced on twitter, of course: Denise Johnson, a black singer from Manchester who performed with Primal Scream
    www.expressandstar.com/news/uk…
    August 19 2020

    In a eulogy, cousin Sandra Hardial said Johnson had sung with a number of bands and become a “pioneer of the Manchester music scene” in the late 1980s and 1990s….. another cousin, Lloyd Hardial, described Johnson’s childhood growing up in Manchester, adding: “A prouder Mancunian I have never met.”

    MANCHESTER singer Denise Johnson was found dead holding on to her inhaler as a family friend shared the news on Twitter

    which is very strange because Sandra Hardial is said to have died at WACO in 1993, according to her brother, who is also quoted in the above funeral piece. The source for her death is from the same brother..

    Today, he still wonders how it could have gone so wrong. His sister, who was 27 when she died, had been a deeply religious person, a college graduate with a good job with the Manchester City Council. What was it about Koresh that caused her to give up everything for the cult leader on the Texas plains?

    This is the first sim who has returned to life in my extensive research.

    PS a “posthumous” solo album was finished and ready to be released after the singer’s untimely “death”

    A go-fraudme was set up for the above lavish funeral, collecting over £31K.

      Hey Felix,
      did you ever look into the passing of Bruce Dickinson’s wife Patrice “Paddy” Bowden?

      I think she was about to recive around £90million in the divorce just before it happened.

        Looks pretty fake – investigative officers in Hazmat suits is standard psy-op procedure in front of invited press photogrpahers.

        From the same day her husband takes over her company

        No reported cause of death or inquest, as would be expected.

        The Sun newspaper [also favoured for planted intel stories] obviously has seen the will

        Paddy died last May, with all of her £1.7million left in a will to Bruce.

        Why you would do that is unthinkable if they had separated in 2018…these people are surrounded by advisers.

    Been listening to a lot of Tom Petty recently….

    Very tidy indeed, Tom Dalpra.

    But the cause of death released in early 2018 was not the favourite “heart attack” but accidental drug overdose, allegedly

    Petty’s wife Dana and daughter Adria wrote in the statement. “On the day he died, he was informed his hip had graduated to a full-on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his overuse of medication.”

    suuuuure
    The customary “family statement” is archived
    web.archive.org/web/2018012002…

    Privacy asked for at this difficult time…. and this was the statement which the tame media duly copied.

    And what better way to seal the narrative but to make a film Autopsy – the final hours of Tom Petty with testimony by his eminent medical examiner…..
    www.reelz.com/show/autopsy/
    Here’s a clip

    Perhaps he did have hip problems – his early 2017 Grammy speech had a touch of the Richard IIIs about it, until he suddenly darted off the stage nimby.

    Sometimes celebs just want to retire out of the limelight, perhaps they do have some underlying condition. Others want to carry on forever, as with Mick & Keef. I think Charlie Watts really has been ill though.

      Many were told it might be a good time to leave the world stage before covid since concert touring will be dead for years. I believe Neal Peert of Rush was one such individual.

        Perhaps there’s Other Land that we don’t get to know about?
        High profilers could get paid to get out once they’re ‘star’ has begun to fade?
        And some join others who have already left?
        Just thought, don’t get all angry at me!

            I didn’t mention an ‘island’.
            Other Lands. Perhaps our maps have been misleading?
            There’s folk on Fakeologist that believe in a Flat Earth are there not? Do they think what we’ve been given is all there is?
            How many of us have travelled the ‘world’ and mapped it for ourselves?
            Don’t you think calling out “island” is like someone calling out “Flat Earther!” if you disagree with the mainstream given facts?

            Like I said…just a thought to think about.

              They could easily be living next door to you and me ….but they really would need split personalities and careful handling
              Retired celebs have astronomical financial portolfios, property holdings, pensions and incoming royalties to be managed or disbursed. It makes more sense if they are in some undisturbed paradise, surrounded by onsite handlers with truckloads of shell companies at their disposal. It’s quite an industry in itself.

    I like a bit of Tom Petty, myself.
    I just made a comment on another post, but thought I might just mention it here as well.

    There’s an obvious connection between the Manchester, England Arianna Grande Attack and the Route 91 concert shooting in Vegas in that they are two major attacks that happened at concerts just 4 months apart.
    What are the odds then that on the day each of these attacks were reported to a shocked public they were accompanied by reports of the death of a major popular icon ?

    In the case of the Manchester attack we had the announcement of the death of well-loved James Bond actor Roger Moore, I said at the time, the announcement, at least, seemed deliberately timed.
    The announcement yesterday of musical icon Petty’s death – 66 – is an interesting parallel and again I can’t help but think it was there to help enhance the ‘blackness’ of the ‘black day’.

    People do drop dead at all ages. It does happen. Maybe Petty did croak and ‘they’ just kept him on ice to time the announcement for this Country Music festival extravaganza. Maybe !

    I did read Petty had said recently it might be his last tour with the Heartbreakers. This made me wonder a bit. He was only 66. Why would he not be keeping going ?
    I don’t know if he’s alive or dead, but certainly there’s something VERY tidy about the timing.
