RIP Tom Petty (ETA. Or Not)

UPDATE: Tom Petty remains in critical condition. The Los Angeles Police apparently made a mistake. I hope it's a mistake that Petty recovers to enjoy. That doesn't seem likely at this moment, but fingers crossed! If Petty does recover, that would definitely be the most rock and roll thing ever.

Rock and roller Tom Petty has died at age 66 after suffering cardiac arrest and subsequently being removed from life support. I feel very, very sad. My condolences to his family, friends, colleagues, and fans.

I wish I could say more than that, but I can't at the moment. The truth is, that's probably all of value I have to say, anyway.

Well I know what's right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground.
