Legendary singer Tom Petty has died after he was rushed to hospital "unconscious" and in "full cardiac arrest".

The 66-year-old, who found fame in the 70s in his band Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, was put on life support, however according to TMZ a decision was made shortly after to turn it off.

I feel kinda lucky I got to see him once more at Forest hills a little while ago. Great songs. Lucky Wilbury.
Note in the video when Roy Orbison sings they have a chair rocking with a guitar,because he passed before they made the video.
