Tom Petty’s Walk of Fame Star Becomes Illuminated Vigil

Moments after Tom Petty passed away, his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame became a sanctuary for fans to grieve and remember the rock legend.

As we previously reported, Petty was rushed to the hospital Sunday for cardiac arrest after his wife found him “not breathing.”  He unfortunately never recovered, and died Monday 8:40PM surrounded by family, friends, and bandmates.

Fans immediately gathered around the rocker’s star, decorating with candles, flowers, and playing his music.

R.I.P. Tom, thanks for everything.
