Well nuts, i was really hoping he would make it, He is one of my all time favorites singers, and the only one that i have had the luck to see live more than once, I got to see him in concert 6 times, which is 5 more than any other artist...
I hope you finally catch that dream Tom

I remember in 1997 he played 20 straight gigs at the Fillmore in SF which only holds 1,200 people saw him 3 times was amazing shows
First night he played 36 straight songs and Carl Perkins sat in and also Bo Didley. He was a legend and the heartbreakers were a tight band RIP

a person on twitter stated it best, only a legend can die twice in one day. he will be missed, for he was a true diva. he gave us great entertainment for his many years of singing. I too was hoping he'd pull through, but, what I know of medicine I had a feeling that was not going to be, if so possible brain damage. at least he was surrounded by friends, family and band mates at his final hours. you will be missed Tom Petty, you enjoy that last dance with Mary Jane as you free fall.

Jim Keltner, the session drummer and percussionist, was not listed as a Wilbury on either album. However, he is seen in all of the group's music videos, and on the DVD released in 2007, he is given the nickname "Buster Sidebury". Overdubs to the bonus tracks "Maxine" and "Like a Ship" also credited as "Ayrton Wilbury", a pseudonym for Dhani Harrison. The name Ayrton was used in honor of F1 racer Ayrton Senna.Jim Horn played saxophone on both albums. The lead guitar on the Volume 3 song "She's My Baby" was played by rock guitarist Gary Moore
