Rest in Peace Tom Petty

Tom Petty, Rock Iconoclast Who Led the Heartbreakers, Dead at 66

Quote:
Tom Petty, the dynamic and iconoclastic frontman who led the band the Heartbreakers, died Monday. He was found unconscious, not breathing and in full cardiac arrest at his Malibu home Sunday night, according to TMZ, and rushed to the hospital and placed on life support. EMTs were able to find a pulse when they found him, but TMZ reported that the hospital found no brain activity when he arrived. A decision was made to pull life support. CBS confirmed Petty's death. He was 66.

For a guy that didn't back down, hopefully he learned to fly.

I did like his statement as to why he wouldn't quit playing with the group.

Way to young to die. I almost couldn't believe it when I read the thread title. His music is absolutely amazing and was like a soundtrack to my late teens early twenties. RIP man.

Jeez, depressing week.

I've loved Petty ever since I was a little kid, Dad liked to play his greatest hits on road trips. My uncle was a HUGE fan, I'm sure he's very bummed right about now.

I wonder if he relapsed. Last I heard, he'd gotten clean.

Reports say cardiac arrest, so possibly?
Or the damage could just have already been done.

I know Rolling Stone did an article on him- I think it was last year- about his having cleaned/sobered up and he looked much better than he had before. Sad if it didn't stick.
