    Yeah, seems to be official. I love these people who can't wait to be the first person to update Wikipedia after someone dies. Wiki page already has birth and death dates, and refers to him in the past tense.

    Totally bummed out. I was just looking at concert tickets a few weeks ago. Honestly I wasn't a big Petty fan growing up but recently I started listening more because of a video I saw with Mike Campbell on his Broadcaster. Bought his greatest hits album on iTunes and it realized they had a lot of great songs. Just when I came around to seeing how great he was and now...gone.

    I googled it and found it on Fox, Yahoo and a business news site after hearing it on my car radio. I try to verify everything before commenting on stuff like this but hey, its the internet so you never know till it really takes hold.

    Rest in peace, Tom. :( Thanks for the music.

    I transferred this from a VHS tape. Please set your flash player to 480P.

    As it should.

    I watched Wiki list him as passed, then not passed, and then dead again, over the last little bit.

    Damn - a very talented dude to say the least. A great band leader and his buried treasure show on Tom Petty radio was fantastic.

    (Don't smoke people !)

    Thanks Tom ! Your music made me happy.

    RIP Tom, thanks for saving my life with your music. You undoubtedly left a permanent mark on this world for so many of us and should be proud of what you cultivated. You will be dearly missed!
