Rock superstar Tom Petty has died at age 66. Spokeswoman Carla Sacks says Petty died Monday night after he suffered cardiac arrest. Petty was known for such hits as “Free Fallin”, “Refugee”, and “American Girl”. The Gaineville, Florida-native with the shaggy blond hair and gaunt features drew upon The Byrds, The Beatles, and other musicians he loved while growing up in the 1960’s. He was usually backed by his longtime band, The Heartbreakers. With Petty’s death, Rock ‘n’ Roll loses a man who carried the torch proudly for four decades in the public eye. Petty burst onto the scene with the punk rock generation, but he was a rock classicist to the core who built a body of work worthy of his heroes.

RIP Tom Petty.
