On behalf of the Tom Petty family we are devastated to announce the untimely death of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty.
He suffered 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 8:40pm PST surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends.

He had just finished a massive tour to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his band Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Petty was a superb lyricist and a kick ass live performer. No wonder he was asked to join George Harrison's Traveling Wilburys, an unlikely supergroup, which also included Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne.
