Tom Petty, who elevated plain-spoken lyrics about relationships and life choices with powerful musical hooks to create sing-along hits like “American Girl,” “Refugee” and “I Won’t Back Down,” has died at age 66.

Mr. Petty suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu early Monday and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but couldn’t be revived, according to longtime manager Tony Dimitriades. He died Monday night surrounded by family, his bandmates and friends.
