So sad to hear that rock star Tom Petty has passed away. Pictured above is the original t-shirt that I purchased at one of the band’s concerts back in 1983. Apologies that the t-shirt is in such bad condition. This was the Long After Dark Tour. The bumper sticker that I had with that slogan on it is long missing.

The concert was awesome. At one point, a fight broke-out and the band stopped playing. Petty announced that they would not play while a fight was underway. The band actually exited the stage, but soon returned once peace & order had been restored. My favorite song (which had a cool video as well) is probably their 1985 hit Don’t Come Around Here No More. Petty’s duet with Stevie Nicks in 1981, Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around is also a favorite. The photo above is of the back of the tour t-shirt. Sending many condolences to the family and friends of the late great Tom Petty.
