Rock legend Tom Petty dead at age 66
Rock legend Tom Petty has died, the musician's family announced in a statement on Monday night. He was 66.
"On behalf of the Tom Petty family we are devastated to announce the untimely death of of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty," the statement read.
"He suffered a cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu in the early hours of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died peacefully at 8:40 pm PT surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends."
CBS News  and Variety  reported that Petty died on Monday, but both later walked it back, and pointed to TMZ's reporting.
TMZ reported  Monday afternoon that while Petty was not expected to live much longer he was still, "clinging to life."
The LAPD had refused to confirm Petty's death to Business Insider in a phone call, citing department policy.
TMZ  reported  that Petty had "no brain activity" on Monday, and that "a decision was made to pull life support." 
The 66-year-old singer, famous for his music with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, wrapped a long tour at the end of September. 
Petty's band gained commercial and critical success throughout the late 1970s, starting with their debut self-titled album, which spawned the hit singles "American Girl" and "Breakdown."
His highest-charting single, "Free Fallin'," was released in 1989 and peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard singles chart.
Petty was nominated for 18 Grammy awards. He won two Grammys as a solo artist and one for his contribution to the supergroup album "The Traveling Wilbury's Vol. 1."

Heartbreakers frontman Tom Petty – a life in pictures
Last week the rock star Tom Petty, who has died after suffering a cardiac arrest aged 66, and his band, the Heartbreakers, completed a trio of acclaimed shows at the Hollywood Bowl on their 40th anniversary tour, which had also brought them to Hyde Park in London in July. Those recent concerts found the group roving across their entire career, featuring tracks from their 1976 debut album such as American Girl and Breakdown and pieces from their latest album, Hypnotic Eye, which was their first to become a US No 1. They ranged through landmarks such as Refugee , Don’t Come Around Here No More and chart favourites such as Mary Jane’s Last Dance and Learning to Fly. They also found room for Petty’s solo hits from his 1989 album Full Moon Fever, such as I Won’t Back Down , Free Fallin’ and Runnin’ Down a Dream .
Petty had accepted that time was catching up with him and could not foresee further giant tours in future. “We’re all on the backside of our 60s,” he told Rolling Stone. “I have a granddaughter who I would like to see as much of as I can. I don’t want to spend my life on the road.”
