Damn. Bennington opened today with "Learning to Fly" in memory of a listener who died over the weekend. Fuck Ron Bennington.

Poor Tom. He's gonna be so overshadowed like Farrah Fawcett when Michael Jackson died the same day.

Loved his cover of Beck's "Asshole".

Ok that came out wrong, I think. Great fuckin song though.

So what are the odds they find coke in his system? I'm going to strong to quite strong (seems to be a fairly common way for these aging rockers to go out). Or possibly riding the ol Horse with no name again?

Probably haven't caught up yet, but just heard a "special report" on Sirius/XM and they're not yet saying he's dead.

I'm guessing they found him too late...found unconscious, able to resuscitate him and get a pulse, but there may be little to no brain activity (as was reported at one point). Probably won't survive long, my guess. And even if he does, he probably won't be belting out "Free Fallin" ever again.

And if I'm wrong and in a day, he's performing at a Pray For Vegas benefit, then good for him.

I wonder if this really is Petty's daughter...if so, she just went off on dogshit Rolling Stone...


I'm told that's a dig at Trump, which makes sense since Tom Petty was a lefty.
