    RIP Tom - Sorry to hear this - too young, one of the truly great American Rockers and Song Writers.

    Oh man. Just bought his greatest hits album on itunes a couple of weeks ago. Mike Campbell was the guy that inspired me to buy my first Tele.

    the mediamass site listed above is a sick hoax site itself. That is what they do, announce true deaths as hoaxes

    Latest update on TMZ is that he had no brain activity and decision was made to pull life support. Truly a sad loss for entertainment.

    mediamass is doing their usual sick thing, listing actual musician deaths as hoaxes

    Huffpost and TMZ reporting there was no "brain activity" and he was taken off support. Hate to say it but it sounds like curtains.


    CBS now reports Tom Petty is dead.


    . . .and now retracted as of 15:55 PST.

    All the major news outlets seem to be picking up the story of his death.

    Haven't seen official notice, but reports that he is brain dead and pulled from life support (on TMZ). Very sad and a big loss.
