  • Tom Petty and band in concert at Target Center

He was found in critical condition at his home in Malibu, California, United States of America on Sunday night after suffering full cardiac arrest. "He died peacefully at 8:40pm PT surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends".

In addition to the Heartbreakers, Petty has played on solo albums and with Mudcrutch and the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys (together with Bob Dylan, ELO's Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and George Harrison of the Beatles).

Here's a playlist of Tom Petty's best songs. In 2008 the band performed the halftime show of Super Bowl XLII - and as recently as 2014, Petty and the Heartbreakers album "Hypnotic Eye" debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.

Tom Petty was a musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and record producer. "So you can use his music so easily, it's nearly like cheating to use Tom Petty music with visuals [.] it's just infectious and I've not been able to wean myself from that". But while many have weighed in on social media, a few artists who were actually playing shows on the night he died got to make more musical tributes.

Players who have never had the chance to play with each other will finally get to share a court, playing for the same side. Personally, I would have liked the league to go one step further - take the 24 best players, regardless of conference.


Mick Jagger took to Twitter to honor his fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member.

Tom Petty started his remarkable career in early his years, but he started being famous in the mid-1970 after he initiated his band: the Heartbreakers. "We are one. I love you dad your songs are dreams manifested".

"I want to thank the hospital for [their] privacy, compassion, medical care", wrote AnnaKim Violette, 35, on Instagram, alongside a selfie. "To the world he was Tom or TP; to us he was and forever will be "Tommy" and one of a kind". It's going to be healing to know I will never go a day without hearing his music. Petty's unique voice, rebellious spirit and warm heart made him a true rock and roll hero whose influence on the music world as a songwriter, performer and philanthropist can not be underestimated.
