Tom Petty May or May Not Have Died

Quote:
UPDATE #2: CBS is reporting that Petty has died.

UPDATE: TMZ reports that when Petty arrived at the hospital he had no brain activity and a decision was made to pull his life support.

Tom Petty was rushed to the hospital on Sunday night (Oct. 1) after being found unconscious in his home, in a state of full cardiac arrest, according to reports.

TMZ cites law enforcement sources that say Petty is currently on life support at the UCLA Santa Monica Hospital, where he was taken by EMTs after they were able to get a pulse from the unresponsive singer/songwriter. The site says his condition is currently unknown but was "critical from the moment he was found," and that sources in Petty's camp "are clearly upset but not talking."

Best known for his work as leader of the Gainesville, Florida-based outfit Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Petty has been one of the most consistently successful rock stars of the last four decades, with 12 albums hitting the top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart since the No. 2-peaking Damn the Torpedoes first made him a superstar in the late '70s -- most recently 2014's Hypnotic Eye, improbably his first No. 1 on the chart. His Greatest Hits set, including such classic rock standards as "American Girl," "Refugee," "Free Fallin'" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance," has been certified 12x platinum by the RIAA.

Petty had just finished a 40th anniversary tour with The Heartbreakers, with its last date coming at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Sept. 22. Billboard has reached out to Petty's camp for comment on the reports, but had not heard back as of press time.

Re: Tom Petty May or May Not Have Died

His initial death-report was premature, but it seems he has in fact died. RIP, great song dude. He was a part of my teenage years. I weep for both of us, as selfish as that sounds.

Re: Tom Petty May or May Not Have Died

I just saw Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers around June 18th of this year at an event called Mountain Jam in the Catskills near where Woodstock 'Happened'. This saddens me.
