Fans of Tom Petty throughout the entertainment world have been paying tribute to the late musician on social media over the past day.

Live Nation released a statement honoring the rocker, saying, “We are deeply saddened to learn of Tom Petty’s passing. He was a titan of rock and roll, an extraordinary songwriter and performer and an American legend. It was an honor to work with him over the years and particularly on his recent 40th anniversary tour. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and all fans of this gifted artist.”

Petty had his own radio show on SiriusXM for years and the satcaster’s President/Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein said in a statement, “We are deeply saddened at the passing of Tom Petty. SiriusXM has had a long and rewarding creative relationship with Tom, working with him on the creation of his own channel starting in 2015 and before that on his beloved radio show Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure, starting in 2005. Tom was intensely involved in curating and presenting Tom Petty Radio, using his passion and humor to shape one of our most unique music channels. He will be greatly missed but will forever live on through his incredible, timeless music.”

Spent the day in the back bus lounge smoking joints and writing out the lyrics and chords to every song on ‘Full Moon Fever’. I’ve listened to that album more than any other album in existence. It was my first compact disc (given to me by my Dad) and I played it endlessly. Tom Petty had more than an impact on me, he is the foundation of all my songwriting. I can’t help but think my connection to his music was some kind of gift from fate, telling me what direction to go in life, from that first CD to then my first electric guitar being a ‘Traveling Wilburys Gretsch Mik Tw200 Model’ (also a gift from my Dad), to then eventually moving to Gainesville, to my love for Rickenbacker Guitars. Back when I was still living in Gainesville I bought a ’64 Fender Jaguar off Stan Lynch, drummer of the heartbreakers, and I always like to think that maybe Petty had picked it up and strummed a couple chords on it, always liked the idea of having my fingers dance on the same fret board as my hero. I am forever indebted to and thankful for the music Petty made. Tom Petty Forever! #tompetty
