Looks like we've lost another one.

Tom Petty, apparently dead from a heart attack.

Latest report says he's still clinging to life.

Lots of conflicting information on this.

Must be bad for his family.

Hang in there, Tom.

Oh bugger.

Hope the more optimistic reports are the correct ones.

It doesn't look good.

It appears that he had a major heart attack, was put on life support, and then they decided to pull the plug.

He's clinging to life, but they aren't going to revive if he gets worse.

Sad :sad Only 66.

A DNR? No, not looking good.

66 is too young. Iggy is still throwing himself shirtless around the stage in that ballpark.

I recently watched a 3 hour documentary about Tom, on Netflix (or Stan?).

I'm not a huge fan, but he's made some great music.

And yeah, Iggy is still going strong at 70.

Not really a fan either. Like his voice though.

Can't say i've listened to much of his music. Most of what i know is through Travelling Willburies (sp?).
