Tom Petty died today. Went into cardiac arrest. No brain activity, so they took him of life support. 66 years old.

The above is probably still true, though news outlets are now blaming CBS News and the LAPD for a premature announcement, and have retracted their stories and eulogies.

After initial reports, they stood him up at the gates of hell, but apparently he didn't back down.

Possibly the delay was from waiting for that last dance with Mary Jane.
