We're in tears of disbelief and sadness here at nwac... The legendary musician suffered a full cardiac arrest and was found unconscious and not breathing in his Malibu home Sunday night. He was taken to UCLA Santa Monica Hospital and put on life support. He has died after being removed from life support today.

My heart is broken. We lost another legend today. Tom Petty was a rock n Roll rebel, unapologetic and always true to himself. He trusted his rock n Roll compass, and no one was better at putting honest words into music. Every time I listen to Wildflowers, I immediately need to sit down and write a song. Tom, thank you for your music, your attitude, and for never listening to anyone who said you can't! You will continue to inspire me and be a keystone in my musical journey.
