    You can't make a half sandwich. If it's not half of a whole sandwich, it's just a small sandwich.

    A bad day gets even worse. RIP, Mr. Petty. Thanks for the wonderful music legacy given throughout your career.

    From December 2016:

    The rust had built up after a three-year hiatus from touring (their longest break in 25 years), but the band will make up for lost time on April 20th when they kick off their 40th anniversary tour at Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Center, staying on the road steadily through late August playing a mixture of arenas, festivals and the occasional stadium.

    "I'm thinking it may be the last trip around the country," says Petty. "It's very likely we'll keep playing, but will we take on 50 shows in one tour? I don't think so. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was thinking this might be the last big one. We're all on the backside of our sixties. I have a granddaughter now I'd like to see as much as I can. I don't want to spend my life on the road. This tour will take me away for four months. With a little kid, that's a lot of time."

    My 6 yo really wanted to see him in concert and I skipped going this year thinking that we could go another year. I haven't told him the news yet.

    Sucks. It suits the rainy, cold Monday here in the INW.

    "Damn the Torpedoes" was a pivotal album in my early days.

    "Southern Accents" was a helluva record too. Loved his work with the Traveling Wilburys too.

    Profile of Tittle that was published by ESPN in 2014:

    Includes the iconic photo of Tittle on his knees, blood trickling from his head, a black and white portrait of a beaten quarterback.
