Petty, who recorded most of his career as the frontman for the Heartbreakers, was best known for 1980s classic rock staples like "Refugee" "The Waiting" "Free Fallin", "I Won't Back Down" and "Running Down a Dream".

Official news of the musician's death came from longtime "Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers" manager Tony Dimitriades. He'd suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu.

He also formed part of the 1980s supergroup the Traveling Wilburys alongside Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne and Roy Orbison.

On Monday evening, the world grieved the loss of rockstar and legend Tom Petty by listening to his music.

Days earlier, Petty and his Heartbreakers would perform penultimate shows at the Hollywood Bowl celebrating the band's 40th anniversary.

Uddhav Thackeray further said that Shivsena allied with the BJP for Hindutva when the word "Hindutva" was a taboo. According to him, the Congress high command went back on its promise of making him the chief minister.

Chad Hollister is a Vermont musician, and he's also a huge Tom Petty fan. He says, "I want to thank you for 40 years of a really great time". "He made me believe in two things: that songwriting was everything, and that California must have felt like his music sounded".

Prior to the album's release, Hillman told Billboard that it was Petty along with good pal Herb Pedersen, who convinced the former Byrds/Flying Burrito Brothers/Desert Rose Band mainstay to make the album at all.

PETTY: You know, we used to mix records sometimes and take them right out to the auto to see how they sounded in a vehicle as opposed to the studio. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. "Having that connection when you actually start to cover and play the songs yourself live, you kind of feel like your somewhat in his shoes playing those songs". In a clip available on YouTube, Petty meets with Avraham Rosenblum, leader of a Hasidic band called the Diaspora Yeshiva Band that blended rock and bluegrass with religious lyrics.

Petty's stardom and his charisma aged like wine; it got brilliant, as he acknowledged in 2014 that old age wasn't going to slow him down.
