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

    :shock:

    Geez! He and The Heartbreakers are one of the few bonafide rock and roll bands left. :(

    That's right. He's what being in a good little band is all about. Always has been.

    To lose him is to lose a direction. Sad, sad stuff.

    Definitely, but more than even a direction, he and The Heartbreakers are the stuff of American icons and legends. A GREAT American rock and roll band.

    When things were going over the top in rock n' roll, he was like a lighthouse, providing illumination to what it was all about.

    -And he's needed more than ever now. Damn, damn shame.

    It reminds me of when Michael Jackson died. He was dead before paramedics even arrived, but they waited a long time to come out and say it. You just knew it though. Same thing here, it was probably over before they even got to him. I am going to weep ...

    Terrible news. Big fan; listened to his first album many times while getting drunk at Jersey Shore. He carried the torch when ROCK was listless. Damn! Love this, twin Firebirds.
