UPDATE (5:15pm ET): Despite several outlets reporting that Petty has passed away, TMZ claims that he is still clinging for life though he is off of life support. The LAPD has also apologized for “initial information” that was “inadvertently provided to some media sources.” …

Just heard on the radio.... can't confirm his status. It was a serious heart attack. Internet reports at this moment say that he is still "clinging to life."

I wasn't a huge fan, but I certainly respect his body of work. Anybody who worked his craft for so long is bound to become a Master and he was. The ones like Petty, Cash, Haggard, and (God help me) the Stones eventually learn to give us their music and not their souls. He gave us a lot.

I considered going to see him last time he came through town because I've never seen him and it just seems a guy of my generation should have the Tom Petty concert box ticked. He was playing in a large arena and I'm pretty much done with those big shows. I wasn't a big enough fan to fight the crowds those events generate.

I liked him best as Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr..
