1:35 PM PT — Sources tell us at 10:30 Monday morning a chaplain was called to Tom’s hospital room. We’re told the family has a do not resuscitate order on Tom. The singer is not expected to live throughout the day, but he’s still clinging to life. A report that the LAPD confirmed the singer’s death is inaccurate — the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. handled the emergency.

A few news outlets have reported both but either way it seems ,sadly, like it’s just a matter of time if it already hasn’t happened.

Maybe the so called news outlets should quit trying to be the first to report something and actually get it right!

Tom Petty has died … his longtime manager Tony Dimitriades confirms.
We broke the story — EMTs responded to a call at Tom’s home Sunday night for a person who was unconscious, not breathing and in full cardiac arrest — he was taken to UCLA Santa Monica Hospital, where he was immediately put on life support.
Dimitriades says Petty died at 8:40 PM PT at UCLA surrounded by friends, family and his bandmates.
After learning Tom had no brain activity, his family chose to take him off life support.
Tom hit it big in 1978 with his band, the Heartbreakers … which scored hits with “Don’t Do Me Like That” and “Here Comes My Girl” to name just a few.

Wow, the guy made a lot of good rock and roll music over the last 40 years! I remember Don’t Do Me Like That and Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around from way way WAY back. Favorite song is probably Forgotten Man, but we won’t forget you, Tom!
RIP

I have to admit I wasn’t the biggest Petty fan but some of his stuff was cool and you can’t deny his mark on the music industry. I totally respect the guy, his band and fans. It is a sad day. Rest In Peace, Tom Petty, Rest In Peace.

I enjoyed the little spoof he did with The Traveling Wilburys, now only two of the five are left.
