    Our family sat together this morning with the Medical Examiner – Coroner’s office and we were informed of their final analysis that Tom Petty passed away due to an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications.

    Unfortunately Tom’s body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems and most significantly a fractured hip.

    Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and, as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury.

    On the day he died he was informed his hip

    Your condolences have been a life saver for me. This has been so surprising and devastating for me and the band as I know it has been for you. It will take a long time before I get over this. I will carry on for myself and all of you who love the music. I feel your love and am forever grateful for your support all these years. Remember, without you, all of our devoted fans, there would have been no Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Tom will always be here on my right shoulder urging me on to keep the dream alive and inspiring me with his spirit.

    Golden 1 Center

    Sacramento, CA

    September 1, 2017

     

    “Man, they sound good all the way back here!”

     

    Standing in the hallway outside of his dressing room backstage at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA on Friday night, Tom Petty smiled widely as his head bobbed to the beat of “Rebel Heart,” the first single off opening band The Shelters’ debut album released last year.

     

    The young Los Angeles rock four-piece aren’t strangers to the Heartbreaker camp, having opened the shows on last year’s Mudcrutch tour, but the connection runs deeper than simply serving as an opening act.
