But TMZ‘s source says the singer isn’t expected to make it through the day, adding he is still alive and clinging on.
We’ll continue to update you with new details.
After it was revealed Tom Petty has been hospitalized due to a full cardiac arrest, and later pulled off life support, the rocker sadly passed away.
On Monday, his fans took to Twitter to share their love for the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers frontman, who was just 66.
Bob Dylan told Rolling Stone of his friend:
“It’s shocking, crushing news. I thought the world of Tom. He was great performer, full of the light, a friend, and I’ll never forget him.”
I feel like today, the music truly died. Can’t go see/hear music and be safe and one of the greats just passed. ├░┼╕ΓÇÖΓÇ¥
