Tom Petty

Tom Petty, a Mainstay of Rock With the Heartbreakers, Dies at 66

Tom Petty, a singer, songwriter and guitarist who melded California rock with a deep, stubborn Southern heritage to produce a long string of durable hits, died on Monday in Los Angeles. He was 66.

Tony Dimitriades, Mr. Petty’s longtime manager, said in a statement that Mr. Petty suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu, Calif., early Monday morning and was taken to the U.C.L.A. Medical Center, where he could not be revived. He was pronounced dead at 8:40 p.m. with family members, friends and bandmates present at the hospital, Mr. Dimitriades said.

Recording with the Heartbreakers, the band he formed in the mid-1970s, and on his own, Mr. Petty wrote pithy, hardheaded songs that gave a contemporary clarity to 1960s roots. His voice was grainy and unpretty, with a Florida drawl that he proudly displayed.

His songs were staples of rock radio for decades, and with hits like “Refugee,” “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” “Free Fallin’ ” and “Into the Great Wide Open,” Mr. Petty sold millions of albums and headlined arenas and festivals well into 2017. He played the Super Bowl halftime show in 2008 and entered the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

But his songs stayed down-to-earth, with sturdy guitar riffs carrying lyrics that spoke for underdogs and ornery outcasts. In his 1989 hit, “I Won’t Back Down,” he sang, “You can stand me up at the gates of hell / But I won’t back down.”

Elie Wiesel

Elie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor and Nobel Laureate, Dies at 87

Author gained acclaim for ‘Night,’ his account of life in Nazi concentration camps

Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel has died. He was 87 years old.
Elie Wiesel, the Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner who educated millions about the atrocities of the Nazi concentration camps, has died. He was 87 years old.

His death was announced in a statement by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said Mr. Wiesel “personified the triumph of the human spirit over the most unimaginable evil“ to become “a powerful force for light, truth and dignity.”

Tributes to the peace advocate and activist—who famously warned that “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference…and the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference”—poured in from around the world Saturday.

“With Elie Wiesel, it is not just a great writer, a philanthropist and a scholar who is leaving us,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said in a statement, “it is above all an indefatigable fighter against hatred, intolerance and violence.”

Mr. Wiesel “touched the hearts of so many and helped us to believe in forgiveness, in life, and in the eternal bond of the Jewish people,” Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said in a statement.

An author of dozens of works of fiction and nonfiction, Mr. Wiesel also published “Night,” a harrowing and acclaimed memoir of his family’s 1944 capture and detainment in the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps. Continue reading
