It's not been a good end to the weekend. Damn the Torpedoes and Full Moon Fever are in my top 300, and I'll be listening to them now.

Fuck, this is awful. Too many of our beloved musicians are lost prematurely. Rest in peace.

Heard that he's not officially dead yet according to TMZ but it's not looking good.

CBS said he's kaput.

TMZ says that he's not.

1:35 PM PT -- Sources tell us at 10:30 Monday morning a chaplain was called to Tom's hospital room. We're told the family has a do not resuscitate order on Tom. The singer is not expected to live throughout the day, but he's still clinging to life. A report that the LAPD confirmed the singer's death is inaccurate -- the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. handled the emergency.

Holy shit. Then...maybe? Hopefully? Oh man, I hope he pulls through.

Sources say he probably won't make it through the day, so sadly it looks like while we were a bit preemptive, he's on the way out.

Yeah, this one is pretty hard. Tom Petty, alot like Billy Joel or Elton John, were just always on the radio when I was growing up. Everyone knows the hits.

So he was reported dead, then not dead?

Dead, only mostly dead, now probably dead.

Confirmed within the last few minutes (it's 11:30 pm Chicago time as I write this) - Tom Petty has passed away.

It would have been better if some media outlets hadn't prematurely put him in the ground hours ago. Everyone has to have THE SCOOP!!!, I guess. It was apparently obvious from the moment Petty was found that he wasn't going to make it, but the botched reporting really leaves a bad taste.

Really sad news (in the midst of a day that was already really, really shitty). R.I.P., T.P.

Like with Prince, a puzzling death turns out to be part of the opioid crisis.
