The music icon was born in Gainesville, Florida on Oct. 20, 1950. Early reports indicated his death quickly, but they were prematurely without a confirmation.
Petty was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. He also had more than 80 million records sold worldwide. He’s one of the best-selling music artists of all-time.
Those were just some of his accolades. He has a long-list of accomplishments, including winning the MusiCares Person of the Year in Feb. 2017 for his ‘contributions to music and for his philanthropy.’
He’s also inducted, as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in New York City. He also won the Billboard Century Award, the highest honor by the organization in 2005 at the Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
