Tom Petty Rushed to Hospital in full cardiac arrest

EMTs rushed to his Malibu home and were able to get a pulse. He was rushed to the UCLA Santa Monica Hospital and our sources say he was put on life support.

Petty's condition is unknown but was critical from the moment he was found.

TMZ just tweeted an update about there being no brain activity and a decision being made to pull life support.

Ugh. Just... ugh.

One of my favorite songwriters ever. So glad I got to see him twice in the last two years (once with Mudcrutch, once with the Heartbreakers). Fuck.

I remember hearing his big hits all the time on the radio as a kid, notably "Mary Jane's Last Dance" and "You Don't Know How it Feels". Then I got more into his music as a teenager. Never got to see him live, though, sadly-that had always been one of my big wishes.

This news hurts. I can't believe it-way, way too young. Rest in peace, Tom.

One of the great heartland musicians. This man was truly a talent, had amazing longevity as an artist and grew out of the early hard rocker shoebox he could easily have been confined to. It's amazing how good his good songs were.

He was An American Guy. Too young & this sucks.

Well it was nearly summer, we sat on your roof
Yeah we smoked cigarettes and we stared at the moon
And I showed you stars you never could see
Babe, it couldn't have been that easy to forget about me

An absolute legend. I was lucky enough to seem him this past summer for the first time and it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen. So many classic songs, and he made it look effortless.
