Tom Petty was taken to the hospital last night after he was found unconscious in his Malibu home, according to TMZ.

Found unconscious + cardiac arrest + life support?

He's most likely already gone When I worked E/R and a patient was brought in in full cardiac arrest, we prepped the morgue.

Re: Tom Petty in critical condition after cardiac arrest

That sucks.


A sidenote: Watched The Postman a few nights ago where Tom played the "Bridge City Mayor", otherwise nameless...

Postman: I know you. You're... famous.

Bridge City Mayor: I was once... sorta.


Can't get the Tom Petty/Stevie Nicks tune out of my head, I won't name it because it would be kind of tasteless right now, my mind operates strangely.

Definitely gonna miss Tom...

So sad. So many great songs and such a great musical legacy. Heaven's band is certainly getting more and more stacked way too quickly these days...
