No details yet but Tom Petty is in critical condition after suffering a cardiac arrest.  This is a fucking horrible day for music fans any way you slice it.

Jesus Christ, reports are that he's already dead.  Wikipedia already put up a death date.  Trying to get a confirmed report.

TMZ updated their initial story with this:

UPDATE:  We're told after Petty got to the hospital he had no brain activity and a decision was made to pull life support.

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers had just completed their 40th Anniversary tour exactly one week ago today, last Monday, at the Hollywood Bowl. 

He was 3 weeks shy of his 67th birthday.

Same here.

I know his old stuff gets the most love, but I love it all.  The production for Mary Jane's Last Dance is INFUCKINGCREDIBLE.

Cool fact - apparently his guitar teacher when he was little, was Don Felder of the Eagles.

No official word that he's gone yet. The waiting is the hardest part.

Everyone is reporting that he's officially dead now (and yes, I do see what you did there).

This is sad news. It sounds as if he might have had a shot if not for being alone when it happened and not being found until it was too late.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers were a great live act. I'm glad to have seen them several years ago after having to be convinced to go to the concert.

Sad day. Loved all of his stuff. Can't believe he was only 66.

Apparently Tom Petty is NOT dead, not yet anyway. But journalism sure is. Not a strong day for CBS.
