Rumor's of Tom Petty's Death Have Been Exaggerated
"CBS News reported information obtained officially from the LAPD about Tom Petty. The LAPD later said it was not in a position to confirm information about the singer and that 'initial information was inadvertently provided to some media sources.' In that statement, the LAPD also apologized for 'any inconvenience in this reporting.'
UPDATE: he has been taken off life support and is not expected to survive, but is still clinging to life as I type this.
