Tom Petty's daughter pays tribute to late rocker with emotional Instagram posts

Music fans around the world are mourning the death of rock legend Tom Petty, born and raised in Gainesville. Forgive me if this seems like an impossibly tall order. His songs are in the atmosphere. But a childhood handshake with Elvis Presley in the "50s piqued his interest in rock n" roll, and at the age of 17, inspired by the Beatles and the Byrds, Petty dropped out of high school to play rock with his band, Mudcrutch.
