"Singer-songwriter Tom Petty, famed for his songs about love and Los Angeles, has died. Tony Dimitriades, Mr. Petty’s longtime manager, confirmed the death. 

Petty was taken off of life support at a Los Angeles-area hospital on 2 October 2017 after being hospitalized following a heart attack. The gossip site TMZ stated that life support was pulled for Petty because of a lack of brain activity."

Another musical genius gone too young. His music has been a part of the soundtrack of my life for 4 decades. R.I.P. Tom Petty.

RIP Tom, you made life funner!

saw him for the southern accents tour, just before 'don't come around here no more' he had everyone lick the upper right corner of their ticket [crazy]
the voice, the songwriting, those fabulous ricks, super enjoyable character, glad he was here, much respect!

RIP Tom.  Not a huge fan, but respected his talent.

Always did love singalongs with Tom, even on his not so cool songs, still, a most unique character in a most unique circumstance, surrounded by genius.
FreeFallin' into the great wide open...he sang about all this stuff and more.A little of this and whole lotta lore...
Into the light you go...
