UPDATE: I took down the call. I apologize for the insensitivity. I meant no harm. I truly thought it may shed some light on situations like this and that it might help. IF someone wants to hear the call it’s all over the web but you will not find it on our site anymore. If you know me you know I don’t have an evil bone in my body. I always try to find things related to music or feel good stories. That does not exclude me from being stupid and human. I did not post this for clicks (I could care less), sensationalism or disrespect. Again I am sorry for my offending anyone and I hope you can forgive me. Truly Fingers

 

Original post: While on the air yesterday feeling the weight of the events in Las Vegas news came that Tom Petty was found unconscious in full cardiac arrest and was at hospital on life support. Shortly after it was reported he was removed from life support. Then it was reported that he passed. Then it was reported he was indeed removed from life support but was somehow clinging to life. Needless to say by the 3rd hour of my show I was a bit overwhelmed. As I played music to honor the man and his great body of work the reported changes drove me nuts. Between TMZ, CBS and LAPD and evey outlet wanting to be first, facts got botched. I didn’t want to be first just correct. Sadly at the end of the day Tom indeed passed on to the great gig in the sky. After my shift I came upon the 911 call from his wife. It made me realize there is more to it than Petty passing as our rock idol. He was a husband and a father and now his family has to mourn and heal. This call by his wife gives insight to her struggle and may help others be more prepared for CPR situations. I pray for the family and friends to have strength and some solace that he was so loved by his fans and that his music will live forever. RIP Tom Petty gone to soon at 66.  – Fingers
