Petty served as the frontman for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers for 40 years after rising to fame in the 1970s, and has remained at the top of the rock and roll industry ever since.

The 66-year-old rock legend’s fellow musicians were as shocked as everyone to hear reports of Petty’s reported passing and revealed their heartbreak on social media as the news broke.

Some musicians also reflected on the day as a whole during which the nation was also mourning the biggest mass shooting in United States history.

“I am crushed…,” Jon Bon Jovi said in a tweet. “Praying for all those affected by Vegas last night. And now the loss of one of my great influences Tom Petty today.”

It was a tragic day that will certainly never be forgotten.
