Tom Petty at the Hollywood Bowl, September 25, 2017

Rocker Tom Petty has been pulled off life support after being rushed to the hospital Sunday in cardiac arrest, TMZ reports.

The “Free Fallin’” singer, 66, was reportedly found unconscious and not breathing in his Malibu home, and was subsequently taken to the UCLA Santa Monica Hospital, where he "had no brain activity." His condition was unclear up until an hour ago, but the outlet reports that Petty has been critical since Sunday night. The word "dead" has not been mentioned, but again -- he has been taken off life support.

He just recently finished a full North American tour at the Hollywood Bowl last week. Here's a song from his final set...

Not my favorite artist, his tunes are 'ok' but there are several good ones. However he had undeniable talent and work ethic to match, he was a bona-fied star who earned it. It's always a sad day to lose an entertainment giant.

Well, the media and everyone on Facebook is reporting him as deceased, but he's still alive. Hospital spokespeople say he won't make it past today, but he's still alive -- just off life support.

Yep, we lost another great.  Running Down a Dream is my personal Petty song.  Here's to another Wilbury Traveling to the other side.

kalron27 The station we listen to at work always credits Wilbury songs to him and him alone. I've always resented them for that. Don't gloss over one of the most amazing super groups in history.

Then again, they play 'Lets Go Crazy' by Prince... And they cut out the sermon at the start and the solo at the end. So clearly they are evil.

Reports are that he died. Would have been a much bigger story on a normal day. He was only 66.
