Not to ignore the terrible tragedy that just occurred this morning in Las Vegas but we have some tragic news from the music world to share: Tom Petty has passed away. The iconic musician was 66. According to TMZ, Petty was found unresponsive in his Malibu home last night after suffering from cardiac arrest. Upon entering the hospital, he was put on life support but with no brain activity, the decision was made to take him off and let him go. The story is still unraveling but Twitter has already been inundated with #RipTomPetty tweets. His song "Free Fallin'" was the only song I could successfully master on my guitar and I remember growing up with him on the radio in my father's car. This is a sad day, all around. Our thoughts and prayers at Three Ice Cubes are literally with everyone!!!


After this article went to print, it was learned that Petty was actually still in the hospital all news outlets that had confirmed the singer had died were to retract their statements. At 8:40pm, Petty officially passed away, peacefully, surrounded by his bandmates (The Heartbreakers) as well as family and friends, his manager confirmed. We apologize for any unnecessary sadness this may have caused prematurely. Our hearts go out to his fans and his loved ones.
