    Whoever came up with this idea for Tom Petty's birthday is a genius!

    All the vampires walkin' through the valley! Free Fallin' fans honor Tom Petty by dressing up for march down Ventura Boulevard

    • The procession was based on a line in Petty's 1989 song Free Fallin' where he refers to vampires on the march

    Tom Petty Died From Massive Accidental Drug OD

    1/19/2018 3:51 PM PST

    Tom Petty's Autopsy, Singer Died from Massive Accidental Drug Overdose
    EXCLUSIVE

    Tom Petty's autopsy results are in, and they show the singer died from an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications.

    The L.A. County Coroner says a number of Tom's organs failed due to "mixed drug toxicity."

    Tom's autopsy report shows the singer was on several pain meds, including Fentanyl patches, oxycodone (Oxycontin), temazepam (Restoril), alprazolam (Xanax), citalopram (Celexa), acetyl fentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl. The reason doctors prescribed the meds was because of a number of medical problems, including emphysema, knee problems and a fractured hip.

    The family says the linchpin to Tom's demise was the fractured hip. He insisted on touring for 53 concert dates with the condition, which worsened over time and caused him to take the meds. On the date he had the heart attack he was told his hip had graduated to a full-on break that made the pain unbearable and may have caused the overuse of meds.

    The autopsy says Petty suffered from coronary artery atherosclerosis.

    As we reported ... Tom's official death certificate left his cause of death as "deferred," leaving it as a mystery until now.

    We broke the story ... Tom went into full cardiac arrest before being taken to a hospital in L.A. He eventually died when his family took him off life support.

    Fentanyl was also linked to the deaths of Prince and Lil Peep.

    Tom was 66.

    I'm sad, but not really surprised, after I read he was touring with a fractured hip I had my suspicions. *sigh*

    Tom Petty's family has confirmed his death last year was due to an accidental drug overdose.
    His wife and daughter released the results of Petty's autopsy via a statement on his website, and through a link on his Facebook page Friday night.
    Dana and Adria Petty said they got the results from the coroner's office earlier in the day that the overdose was caused due to a variety of medications.
    'We knew before the report was shared with us that he was prescribed various pain medications for a multitude of issues including Fentanyl patches and we feel confident that this was, as the coroner found, an unfortunate accident,' his family wrote.

    'Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications,' the family wrote in the statement.
    'On a positive note we now know for certain he went painlessly and beautifully exhausted after doing what he loved the most.'
    The statement was posted moments before the Los Angeles coroner's office issued its official findings, which confirmed that Petty had a variety of medications, including fentanyl and oxycodone in his system.
    Petty suffered from emphysema, a fractured hip and knee problems that caused him pain but he was still committed to touring, his family said.
    He had just wrapped up a word tour with his band, The Heartbreakers, a week before he died in October at age 66.
    The last song Petty performed was American Girl.

    '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 had graduated to a full on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his over use of medication.

    'As a family we recognize this report may spark a further discussion on the opioid crisis and we feel that it is a healthy and necessary discussion and we hope in some way this report can save lives. Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications.
    'On a positive note we now know for certain he went painlessly and beautifully exhausted after doing what he loved the most, for one last time, performing live with his unmatchable rock band for his loyal fans on the biggest tour of his 40 plus year career. He was extremely proud of that achievement in the days before he passed.
    'We continue to mourn with you and marvel at Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' incredible positive impact on music and the world. And we thank you all for your love and support over the last months.
    'Thank you also for respecting the memory of a man who was truly great during his time on this planet both publicly and privately.
    'We would be grateful if you could respect the privacy of the entire Heartbreaker family during this difficult time.

    While I can’t imagine the unbearable pain of a broken hip. We have got to do something in this country in regard to the amount of painkillers that are being put out there. It’s killing people and creating drug addicts.

    Acetyl fentanyl is currently not prescribed without a license to buy/use in the US. It’s a Schedule I drug.

    Wonder where that came from.

    I used to be on the fentanyl patch and Oxycontin for breakthrough pain. For 2 months I was in hell. It was 2 months too long, the side effects from the Oxycontin alone drove me nuts. It did what it was supposed to do, but it made me feel like I wanted to jump outta mu skin if I didn't take the next dose (which was every 8-12 hours). If I didn't I was in trouble. The fentanyl patch would sometimes dispense too much if I was out in the sun (I live in Death Valley) or if I showered and hot water got on my patch. I told my pain management Doc, no thanks, I'd rather suffer my pancreatic pain than to feel what I was feeling on these two drugs. I manage with tramadol and Medical weed just fine. Plus I'm way to chicken to try fentanyl again like my Doc wants me to. Just too many people dying on the legit prescriptions and the fake stuff is even worse.

    ^Glad the medical weed is working for you. Such a better choice than fentanyl. Scary the doctor is trying to push you on it again. When I got my doctor, I made sure he was an ethical one that doesn't push hard things on me, which means he doesn't accept insurance for visits, but that's just once every three months for a check up.

    This just makes me even sadder that it was a totally preventable death. He lived in California why would he not have been on medical weed? I only hear good things about how it helps people so much more than these drugs that are killing folks left and right.

    I get that he had a broken hip, but.... What the fucking fuck was he doing on fentanyl? And if he was in enough pain to be on fentanyl what the fuckity fuck was he doing still performing? My guess is that he'd been managing this pain for a loooong time. But pain meds don't fix. If you can't fix what's causing the pain, that's when you need close monitoring by a pain management specialist, and this will be the ONLY Dr that you can get pain meds from.

    My question is why could he not have surgery?

    This is not the proper use of fentanyl. This sounds like a case where he'd been on opiods for so long that fentanyl was probably needed to keep it in check. You can't stay on pain meds indefinitely, folks. Not if you want to live.
