Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young are feeling the loss of one of their own.
The iconic singer-songwriters both took to social media on Tuesday to mourn and honor fellow rock legend Tom Petty, who died on Monday at age 66 after suffering cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu, California.
"Down here on E Street, we’re devastated and heartbroken over the death of Tom Petty. Our hearts go out to his family and bandmates," Springsteen wrote on Instagram. "I’ve always felt a deep kinship with his music. A great songwriter and performer, whenever we saw each other, it was like running into a long lost brother. Our world will be a sadder place without him."
