    Wha??? Now CBS and TMZ are both back-peddling, saying his death has not been confirmed.

    Take it to the limit, one more time.

    They're saying the same thing on local Los Angeles TV news too. This is so tragic! Reminds me of Carrie Fisher's passing. The waiting, truly is, the hardest part.

    Very sad news. Latest reports I see say 'still clinging to life but not expected to survive the night.

    Here's a personal favourite recent song of TP's.

    And my favourite TP song of all time.

    Just saw him in May when Joe was opening for him - it's truly a shock. I hope he can somehow miraculously pull through but at this point all the reports seem to be saying it's just a matter of time.

    To me, at least, it really seems out of the blue... he seemed so full of life in May!

    I just saw that too about how they reported it early but he's not expected to survive, and it's even more sadder. Feel so bad for his family.

    “On behalf of the Tom Petty family,” said Tony Dimitriades, longtime manager of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, “we are devastated to announce the untimely death of of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty. He suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died peacefully at 8:40 p.m. PT surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends.”

    Petty had just completed an extensive tour to mark the Heartbreakers’ 40th anniversary. It concluded Sept. 25 with a three-night homecoming stand that sold out at the Hollywood Bowl.

    Your spirit unbound,
    You left without a sound.

    Ride that Rickenbacker across the
    Milky Way,
    And, blaze right through Heaven's entryway!

    No waiting now...
