Musicians and Artists Share Tributes to Fallen Rock Legend, Tom Petty

There was a lot of confusion yesterday as the Los Angeles Police Department appeared to confirm, then de-confirm, the death of Tom Petty following a massive heart attack in his Malibu Home on Sunday afternoon. But on Monday night, the Petty family confirmed that the iconic rock star had been taken off life support at 8:40 PST. He was 66 years old.

Petty casts as long a shadow as any American musician, and the tributes started coming in far and wide from his friends and collaborators.
