Tom Petty died Monday at age 66 after suffering a cardiac arrest in his Malibu home

Many artists have been reflecting on Tom Petty and his passing over the past several hours. He was surrounded by his friends and family.

The 66-year-old singer, famous for his music with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, wrapped a long tour at the end of September. For fans who didn't get to see him on this tour, who maybe promised themselves they'd catch him on his next outing, there will be no next time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, inducted in 2002, was praised as "durable, resourceful, hard-working, likeable and unpretentious". Knowing he's gone is enough to buckle your knees.

The petition says, "His tragic death at the age of 66, following his triumphant final US tour, has his fans in shock".

Tom was an American original, kind of like Gary Cooper.

His most iconic singles are lean and unpretentious, and airtight in their perfection.

Even a lyrically basic song like "The Apartment Song" ("Oh yeah, I'm alright, I just feel a little lonely tonight / I'm okay, most of the time / I just feel a little lonely tonight") left me entranced with its heartland, nearly country-rock sound and paradoxically tongue-in-cheek but relatable words.

Angry with the news coverage which erroneously pronounced him dead, she simply continued to share her own story with the world as she sat by his bedside in the hospital.

Cash was on the backside of a late-career resurgence when he recorded Petty's "I Won't Back Down" for his American III: Solitary Man album in 2000.

Petty's albums included "Damn the Torpedoes", "Hard Promises" and "Full Moon Fever", although his first No. 1 did not come until 2014 and "Hypnotic Eye". The world lost a great one today.

"I'm not extremely political". The only explanation I had was I was listening to Petty's "I Won't Back Down". I don't think so. He was a loving father to his daughters, and he had the admiration of just about every musician who ever set foot on a stage after him. That's not how it's supposed to work. Later in 1976, came Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers joined by the likes of Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Ron Blair, Steve Ferrone, Scott Thurston, Dave Grhol, Howie Epstein and Stan Lynch. He will be missed by everyone who loves music.

"We're all older now", he said softly. It's a song that keeps me moving, and lets me know I've got more to give than I realize.
