Dylan of course performed with Petty as part of the supergroup Traveling Wilburys. He along with many others were stunned at the news of Petty’s death on October 2.

“It’s shocking, crushing news,” Dylan told Rolling Stone in a statement. “I thought the world of Tom. He was a great performer, full of the light, a friend, and I’ll never forget him.”
