CONFIRMED: Tom Petty Taken off Respirator, Clinging to Life


It has just been confirmed that true rock legend Tom Petty has been pulled off life support after having a heart attack.  He had been found not breathing and unconscious at his house in Malibu, and was then taken to UCLA Santa Monica Hospital on Sunday.  Doctors had determined that he had no brain activity. The hospital had taken him off of life support. Family gave a DNR order, (do not resuscitate), and as of 20 minutes ago was clinging to life. Reports have been flying around for the last few hours, some sites reported that petty had passed away, but LAPD said later on that they we’re not investigating and had no information. As of 2 hours ago, they could not confirm Petty’s death. I will update as soon as I have more information.


There was no mistaking Petty’s voice not in any album he ever sang on. He performed with the Heartbreakers, the Traveling Wilburys and back in the day, mudcrutch. He had some amazing songs out of his album full moon fever back in 1989, such hits as I Won’t Back Down, Free Fallin and many others…
Holding onto hope….

Ms. B
