Tom Petty: Rock And Roll Legend Passes On At 66
As if waking up to news of an asshole shooting up hundreds of people wasn’t enough of a sign that I should have just went back to bed for the day, TMZ has reported that Tom Petty has been removed from life support after being discovered unconscious and under cardiac arrest with no brain activity .
Dimitriades says Petty died at 8:40 PM PT at UCLA surrounded by friends, family and his bandmates.
He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, and has remained a huge touring draw. He just wrapped up his 40th anniversary tour last week at the Hollywood Bowl.
He passed on at age 66.
