Tom Petty dies at 66 years old

Tom Petty died Monday after being rushed to a Los Angeles hospital; Dimitriades confirmed Petty's death on behalf of the performer's family.

He was 66 years old.

"He suffered cardiac arrest at his chamber in Malibu at 8:40 of this morning and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived. He died tranquilly enclosed by family, his bandmates and friends," Dimitriades said in a statement.

The group finished a summer tour with three performances at the Hollywood Bowl last week.

Petty and the Heartbreakers first came to fame in the 1970s. It was both with that group and as a solo artist, that Petty had a string of hits across the decades, including "Free Fallin'," "American Girl" and "I Won't Back Down."

Their 1976 debut contained a minor hit, "Breakdown," but it wasn't until Petty's third album, "Damn the Torpedoes," that he and the band broke through to the mainstream.

That 1980 album won critical raves, went platinum and spawned the hits "Don't Do Me Like That" and "Refugee."

Petty sang with Stevie Nicks that same year on her smash hit, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around." The duet kicked off a long and fruitful period of collaboration between Petty and other artists.

He recorded "Don't Come around Here No More" -- memorable for its trippy, Mad Hatter-themed music video -- with the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart in 1985.

He joined fellow music legends Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, and Roy Orbison in 1988 to form The Traveling Wilburys. They released two studio albums.

Petty told BESTOFGEEKS in a 2007 interview that he loved music as much as it loved him.

"Music, as far as I have seen in the world so far, is the only real magic that I know," he said. "There is something really honest and clean and pure and it touches you in your heart."
