Mixed reports coming in - he's possibly dead after being pulled off life support - per TMZ.

Devastating either way. Big fan. LEGEND.

Vanity Fair is also confirming he was pulled from life support after being found brain dead.

He performed his last concert just a week ago, it's very shocking.

TMZ just reported that the LAPD report of his death was inaccurate and he is still clinging to life. #MESS This explains why CNN has yet to report on it at all.

I've just bought his Anthology set... I was introduced to him in 2001 at the 9/11 tribute to Heroes concert where he sang... Imagine (I believe) and then again when the Elizabethtown soundtrack came out.

Though he may not be with us much longer, the initial reports that Tom Petty has died were incorrect. He is still "clinging to life" at last report. The death report has been pulled from most websites.
