A sad loss indeed and so young

I always thought he was very underrated in Britain in terms of recognition and never achieved the success his music deserved

I'm guessing he may be one of those artists who is appreciated more after his death than during his lifetime and if so I suppose in that respect he's not alone

Me also. I've been a fan of his for a long time. As 'ruddlescat' has said, he deserved much more success than he got over here.

I am very sad at hearing this news today, I have been a big fan of Tom Petty's music for many years. R.I.P.

Tom made it big in England first, so paving his way to success in the US. I didn't know this, until I read the tributes.
