Friday, February 2, 2018

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica) adjourned a recent State Assembly floor session in memory of the late rock and roll singer, Tom Petty. “In 1976, Petty and the Heartbreakers burst onto the stage with his hit single “Breakdown,” Assemblymember Bloom said, “When the song burst onto the stage, Tom Petty never stopped writing and recording and performing to millions of loyal fans until his untimely death on October 2nd. If it isn’t obvious, I am one of those fans.” Watch all of Assemblymember Bloom’s tribute to Petty and his band in this Assembly Access video.
