According to multiple reports, one of the greatest rock stars of all time, Tom Petty, is clinging to life. TMZ reports that the rock legend was found unconscious in his home near Malibu, Calif. He was immediately transported to a local hospital and put on life support. It is now widely reported that a decision was made on Monday to take him off of life support due to the family having a DNR (do not resuscitate) order on the rock icon. Petty became a superstar in the 70s when his band, The Heartbreakers, churned out such hits as “American Girl” and “Breakdown” just to name a few. The Heartbreakers made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
