Death really sucks.

Would have to be one of the greatest character actors ever

and prolific. Look at the length of his IMBD page. There were no gaps in his career, right up to the very end at 91.

"I'm 87 years old...I only eat so I can smoke and stay alive.. The only fear I have is how long consciousness is gonna hang on after my body goes. I just hope there's nothing. Like there was before I was born. I'm not really into religion, they're all macrocosms of the ego. When man began to think he was a separate person with a separate soul, it created a violent situation.

The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, to nothingness.

Anybody else you've interviewed bring these things up? Hang on, I gotta take this call..... Hey, brother. That's great, man. Yeah, I'm being interviewed... We're talking about nothing. I've got him well-steeped in nothing right now. He's stopped asking questions."

- HARRY DEAN STANTON

Do you have a source for that, John?

Most of it is quotes from a November 7, 2008 interview with Cal Fussman of Esquire magazine.
It does seem to have been edited to make his age current at the time it got posted around social media in 2014

Tom Petty, God Dammit.

:(

Although it's odd, CBS deleted the tweet where they first reported the death, and I'm not sure there has been independent confirmation yet.

But still, :(

Tom Petty clinging to life. They've pulled the plug. :(

Quote
1:35 PM PT -- Sources tell us at 10:30 Monday morning a chaplain was called to Tom's hospital room. We're told the family has a do not resuscitate order on Tom. The singer is not expected to live throughout the day, but he's still clinging to life. A report that the LAPD confirmed the singer's death is inaccurate -- the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. handled the emergency.
12:30 PM PT -- We're told after Petty got to the hospital he had no brain activity and a decision was made to pull life support.
