    Unconfirmed reports that he is gone. Man, that's sad.

      TOM PETTY FOUND UNCONSCIOUS IN FULL CARDIAC ARREST

      http://www.tmz.com/2017/10/02/tom-pe...ardiac-arrest/

      Tom Petty was rushed to the hospital Sunday night after he was found unconscious, not breathing and in full cardiac arrest ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
      EMTs rushed to his Malibu home and were able to get a pulse. He was rushed to the UCLA Santa Monica Hospital and our sources say he was put on life support.
      Petty's condition is unknown but was critical from the moment he was found.
      Petty, who became famous with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1978 with "Breakdown," is 66.
      We've been in touch with numerous people from Petty's camp and they are clearly upset but not talking.
      Petty just wrapped a huge tour, ending at the Hollywood Bowl late last Monday.

      update: We're told after Petty got to the hospital he had no brain activity and a decision was made to pull life support.

              I'm an ass. I'll refrain from my tasteless joke.

                So he isn’t gone?

                CORRECTION:A previous version of this article cited incorrect information distributed by the LAPD to CBS confirming Tom Petty’s death. Petty remains hospitalized at this time.

                  He's not quite dead yet.

                  Pete (thinks he might pull through)

                    He's brain dead.

                        I was thinking if there has been a more accomplished rock star to come out of Florida?

                          Tom Petty is the one guy I point at and say, "There's one guy who didn't get where he is because of his looks."

                          Pete (will miss the guy)

                            Its funny because my mom would say the same thing. She said for a small, skinny, not so good looking guy with not a lot of range he made the best of what god gave him.

                                He never took himself too seriously either. Always had a good guitar riff too.
