The New York Times Bestseller *One of Rolling Stone's 10 Best Music Books of 2015* An exhilarating and intimate account of the life of music legend Tom Petty, by an accomplished writer and musician who toured with Petty No one other than Warren Zanes, rocker and writer and friend, could author a book about Tom Petty that is as honest and evocative of Petty's music and the remarkable rock and roll history he and his band helped to write. Born in Gainesville, Florida, with more than a little hillbilly in his blood, Tom Petty was a Southern shit kicker, a kid without a whole lot of promise. Rock and roll made it otherwise. From meeting Elvis, to seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, to producing Del Shannon, backing Bob Dylan, putting together a band with George Harrison, Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne, making records with Johnny Cash, and sending well more than a dozen of his own celebrated recordings high onto the charts, Tom Petty's story has all the drama of a rock and roll epic. Now in his mid-sixties, still making records and still touring, Petty, known for his reclusive style, has shared with Warren Zanes his insights and arguments, his regrets and lasting ambitions, and the details of his life on and off the stage. This is a book for those who know and love the songs, from "American Girl" and "Refugee" to "Free Fallin'" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance," and for those who want to see the classic rock and roll era embodied in one man's remarkable story. Dark and mysterious, Petty manages to come back, again and again, showing us what the music can do and where it can take us.

A quiet evening out with her husband and the children was on the agenda. What was not on the agenda was becoming the victim of a theft. Everyone told her that things were going to be fine, once the police report was filed and the banks and credit card companies were notified. Everyone told her don ́t worry . . . But, that was just the start of the problems. When the case was not assigned for a week after originally being reported the damage had already begun. Then escalated. Then, when it seemed as if things could not get any worse, they did. How many times do we stick things in our pockets, wallets, or purses "just for the time being," only then they are forgotten for possibly weeks or months down the road. If something happens and we are the victim of a pick-pocket, how well can we remember off the tops of our head those items in detail that we just wanted to "keep safe." Unfortunately, this type of crime happens all too often, with the victim many times being told to simply accept it and move on. Enter the world of Jennifer Larson as she can see the possible danger but no one seems to believe her.

In the wake of his death, this celebratory Omnibus Enhanced edition now features curated Spotify playlists of his early influences, his collaborations and his greatest songs. Additionally, an interactive Digital Timeline of his life charts his uncertain path with video footage of interviews, live performances and more.
