Tom Petty was stricken by a major heart attack at his Malibu home in the early hours of Monday (10/2) and was rushed to the UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica where tests indicated that his brain showed no activity and the decision was made not to continue life support measures.  Numerous usually relaible sources incorrectly interprpreted that as meaning Petty had passed away, but he did not die until Monday evening.  Official word came from his long time manager, Tony Dimitriades, who said that Tom "...died peacefully at 8:40pm (Pacific Time)) surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends".
