Tom Petty has posted a note on his website to victims of Hurricane Sandy. He writes, "Very sorry and sad for all those in the east that are suffering from Sandy. Our hearts go out to everyone there and all our friends, relatives and of course our fans. It will take time and faith to heal these wounds, so let's do what we can to help. Lots of Love, Tom Petty."
